Throughout my life I developed a passion for helping others. This passion has inspired me to open a safe supportive environment for all Women & Trans women suffering from Addiction, P.T.S.D Domestic Violence & Unresolved Trauma. I opened Don't Look Back Counseling LLC (private practice) and then added the not for profit. to give back to the community.
The Don't look Back Center Inc.
I was born in Salisbury Maryland and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. When I was 11 my family decided to move to Colorado. I am the oldest child raised by a single mother. I was blessed with four children of my own, all boys. By the time I was 21 years old, after several abusive relationships I began abusing substances which lead me down a road of criminal activity. I was sentenced to the Colorado Department of Corrections. After my release I decided enough is enough so I chose to take a better path in life and I successfully completed parole and the requirements for Denver Human Services to obtain custody of my children. I completed my degree in General studies at Mansfield Business School and started co-facilitating groups at Lampkin Group Center with Michelle Lampkin as mentor who at this time believed in me more than I believed in myself.
Today I am a recovering crack addict / physical & sexual abuse survivor which is a part of the reason for my passion to help others.
