For two-thirds of my life, I've suffered from mental illnesses like Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Tourette's Syndrome, and Depression. I fought with symptoms that caused other issues like incredibly low self-esteem and self-mutilation. I lived in a very dark place for a long time, but made it through to the other side where I landed on a pile of glitter.

Since then, I've realized how wonderful life is, even when it's hard. I've learned how to embrace who I am, whether that person is grumpy, overweight, or down-right strange. I've figured out how to love myself unconditionally, even on the toughest days, and that makes everything in life much more beautiful.

I'm an expert on self loathing and self love, and I'm here to help you quit the former and fall head first into the latter. I believe my struggle with mental illness and past self hate makes me more eligible to teach you about self love and the path to happiness because I'm not a self-proclaimed guru who can't relate to your feelings of despair. I know what both sides are like and I genuinely want to help you.
