Meet two of my friends, Aleksei Archer and Tracey Williams, both of these ladies are THRIVERS as SURVIVORS. I met Aleksei while working in West Hollywood about 15 years ago. Now she is growing as an actor and influencer and it is so much fun to watch. Never judge a book by its cover; we never know what a journey has held.
I had the great pleasure of going through the DBSA Certified Peer Specialist Training program here in Los Angeles back in 2018 with Tracey and that experience was a big influencer in us producing the video further down below.
I came across Aleksi’s post (down below) on IG and it reminded me of the video that I shot with Tracey back in 2018, which made me want to remind you that, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. We are developing a community here to accompany one another in our journey’s of well-being and to share tools, insights, and time together as we move forward in search of Truth.
