Mental Health Writer

I've struggled with generalized anxiety disorder and PMDD for most of my life. My goal as a writer is to destigmatize these conditions and let others know it's okay to need help sometimes. It's okay to take care of yourself. Mental illness is valid. There are people out there who will advocate for you and I hope I can be one of them.
