My name is Alison Fabricius Gardner, I grew up in rural Utah, the same town an ancestor founded and I love the family I come from. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and a lot of what I do is about helping establish a firmer connection with God, but you don't have to be a member of the Church to work with me.
I served a mission in Cambodia Phnom Penh and learned a lot about seeing things from other people's perspective, I also learned that I'm not perfect, but that I do want to do my best. I've been married to a wonderful man for three years and we've learned a lot together, and we've learned a lot about how to make it through depression and anxiety together.
It has been a painful road at times and a road that has taught me a lot about seeing the best and persevering. Depression and anxiety are unique to every individual who has them as part of their life, but there are tools that can help.
If you or a loved one are feeling worn down from this fight, there is still hope. I am not a counselor or a therapist, I can't magically fix problems.
But I can help you identify some things that make the burdens you are carrying feel so heavy and can offer tools to make the load lighter.
