The CDC estimates that for every person who dies by suicide, 135 others are directly affected. This amounts to over 6 Million Americans a year. My children and I are among them.

" Life After Suicide will be a game changer in the mental awareness world. I know you are bringing balm to those suffering from similar pain. This book comforted me. It will for others. It is the greatest way you can honor Rob’s memory - a man who lived to help others." -Rabbi David-Seth Kirschner, NJ.

Life After Suicide: Finding Courage, Comfort & Community After Unthinkable Loss

Proud to announce that my book, Life After Suicide, is available for pre-order now. In the book, I share the stories of myself and many other people whose lives were changed forever by the suicide death of a loved one. Unfortunately, there is so much myth, misinformation, ignorance, shame, blame, anger and stigma surrounding suicide and mental illness. This book explains how it is possible to honor the spirit of the person who died and heal with comfort and courage, and I hope it brings those suffering in the shadows, into the light. Now that suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US, everyone knows someone who has been affected. Pre-order link is here >>>
