Hope Forward: Getting Through Emotional Pain and Moving Forward


Stay tuned for stories and thoughts and tools on recovery, bearing the unbearable and making life when you feel like death.

Over the last 20 years I have been listening to the stories of emotional pain, trauma, trouble and addiction. While many people come in to consult on a particular problem, or to learn more about what they want in life, and what's in the way of them getting it (and how to move forward), there are many who, in one form or another, and for many different reasons, hurt their bodies.

As a way of coping with the persistent and unbearable currents of hurt, grief, distress, frustration, anger and anxiety, many of you ritually cut, burn, binge, purge, and bang your heads into walls. This blog is for anyone suffering from emotional pain of any kind, but most especially for those of you who are living life, thinking about death, and hurting yourselves with food, razors, matches, and other weapons of self destruction, masquerading as tools of salvation and relief.

Truth is, I know there is a way out. Its not fast or easy, but I believe that the work it takes to get there is worth it. I do a lot of listening, and now its my turn to offer up some of the things that I know help, and some ideas about recovery, and finding your voice and a life you can and want to live. So Stay tuned!
