“I am grateful to be able to turn my own DV experience into a way of helping other people. I am passionate about educating society that DV can happen to anyone, no matter how rich or smart you may be. The effects of DV go on for decades and touch you in many ways: physical scars and deep emotional ones which can taint your relationships and destroy your self-esteem.”
“I’m here to help women regain their strength, their positivity and to answer any questions you may have about your relationships. Sometimes just understanding that what you’re experiencing is not normal or right, and knowing there are other truly gorgeous women out there who will listen, support and understand you, and give you the strength to move out of the darkness and into a world that is light, free and joyful.”
