I enjoyed your presentation Healing from Depression. Thank you for sharing your personal stories; it made the presentation so much more poignant. I appreciate the way you welcomed each person into the discussion & were attentive to their needs. The power point & handouts were very well done. I especially like the quotes from famous people who have suffered from depression.

It really hit home how it is my responsibility to make the changes in my behaviors to help manage my depression. It’s one thing to know what to do, but it’s another to do what needs to be done consistently. Exercising daily is my biggest challenge. I know it will be most helpful.
Thank you again for you experience & guidance.
