Hi and warm welcome to my blog corner!
I am Julie Dostal, wife, aunt, dog mom (I promise not to post pictures of my dog… yet), sister, niece, runner, hiker, kayaker, photographer, musician, teacher, trainer, Psychologist, and woman in long term recovery. Although it is probably my recovery that brought me to the field of addiction, it is likely the other parts of my life that kept me here.
I have worked on all sides of the addiction and mental health continuum, including crisis intervention at the local hospital. it seemed that there must be something that might help people to never have to experience such circumstances in the first place. Intervention was rewarding, but prevention called to me.
