If you have come to this page, it is most likely because you or a loved one is experiencing the pain of depression and anxiety. I know this pain well  For most of my life I have struggled with depression and anxiety. In the fall of 1996, I suffered a life-threatening depressive illness, I was plagued with dark suicidal thoughts that alternated with out-of-control anxiety and agitation, I was living in a hell created by my own disordered brain.

In order to stay alive, I developed a series of coping strategies which I called, “My Daily Survival Plan for Living in Hell.” Eventually, those tools helped me to get well and later I used them to form the foundation of my depression recovery program .

I created this web site in to share these coping skills with you. As you navigate this site, you will see that there many useful tools and resources that are designed to help you to feel better and to reduce your symptoms of anxiety and depression with those of wellness and joy. Some of the topics I include are:
