Hello, my name is Andrea, and I am here to leverage my 24 years of experience navigating bipolar disorder to help you live a fuller, more balanced life filled with faith, courage, and hope.
I am a flawed, but faithful, follower of Jesus Christ, I am married to Scott, and we have a beautiful daughter named Ava.
My philosophy in life is to follow Jesus Christ, be kind, eat the cake, and buy the concert tickets. One thing I know for sure is that a Sonic root beer and a loud rock concert make anything better.
Why I Am Here
Why am I here? I am one of the 2.8% of Americans who live with bipolar disorder.
I don’t know about you, but I could have really used an owner’s manual to guide me through the darkest moments of my bipolar disorder journey. It would have been useful to have an expert to show me the ropes, encourage me, and give me actionable strategies to apply to my journey.
That’s where I come in. It is important to know that I am not a mental health care professional. I am not qualified to diagnose and treat bipolar disorder. I will NEVER shove a certain cocktail of medications or treatment protocols down your throat.
How I Can Help
Although I don’t have mental health care credentials, I am a graduate of the Bipolar Disorder School of Hard Knocks. I have something unique to offer you: 24 years of real-life experience navigating bipolar disorder.
To find out the four ways I will leverage my 24 years of real-life experience navigating bipolar disorder to help you live a fuller, more balanced life filled with faith, courage, and hope, read my blog post, “Welcome to My Big Fat Bipolar Life.”
Living with bipolar is hard. It is complicated, but it can also be beautiful. One of the most valuable lessons I have learned in my 24 years of navigating bipolar disorder is that life doesn’t have to be perfect to be wonderful. Join me on this journey to find out how you can live your own big fat bipolar life, overflowing with the abundance talked about in John 10:10.
