I grew up in the film industry. My dad is an actor, so I was just in that world. I figured I'd give being an actor a shot. I wrote ans directed a few films as well.I made some movies and some great TV shows and met a lot of fantastic people. However, I kind of lost myself along the way. It wasn't really my true passion. I think I was chasing after false idols, and at some point, I realised I had to change and I didn't know what to do. I ended up getting involved in drugs and alcohol and causing a long trail of destruction behind me.
When my daughter was born, I figured I had to turn things around. I had to change and it was a very scary process because I didn't know what I was going to do to provide for my family.
I went back to school, I got a master's in clinical psychology, and I got sober. I decided I wanted to help people, so I began to do that. I worked at rehabs and as a sober companion. Then I started helping people with anxiety and depression, trauma, relationship problems, and parenting. I really feel like I kind of found myself losing myself in the service of others. I help people find the courage to face things because I think to me the idea is not becoming less afraid; it's about becoming more courageous.
