Funny you should ask…
“What’s in it for me?” a client asked. “Well, funny you should ask.” I replied. What was odd about this conversation was it was with a therapist – oh, sorry-I mean a ‘mind architect.’ A therapist can be all well and good but personally, I want to hear from someone who has experienced to some degree what I have been through.
I was always interested in mental health. I minored in it at the University of Oklahoma. I spent (and still do) the last 25 years of my life as a top rated stand up comedian- Oprah’s funniest choice. Ten of those years I’ve elected to speak to people about healing, laughter, and take them on a fun and funny journey for an hour or so. It’s been extremely successful.
The truth has a way of God smacking you when you least expect it. It took me into my 50’s get the message. I was a child of trauma.
As a mental health and wellness speaker I bring my stories, experiences and shine a light on how most of us have or are suffering from some sort of trauma. How I used comedy to cover-up the pain and when I made the choice to stop it.
Trauma finds it way into all areas of our life. Sharing with practical advice and tools through the magical porthole of laughter is my gift to each and every audience.
