For years I have witnessed the internal hell that unresolved trauma can have on someone and the toll it takes on their life. It has been my mission as a counselor to do whatever I can to alleviate that pain and help to put the pieces back together. In 2016, I lost someone very close to me as he became one of the 22 vets we lose daily to suicide, and I have known many others. My why is so that we don’t lose any more precious lives. It is an honor to be here at Warrior’s Heart and serve a great mission. I love that I get to come to work every day and say “Welcome Home” to the warriors that arrive to reclaim their lives.
