He began his recovery journey in 2016, culminating in a new life full of meaning, purpose, and fulfillment. Now working as a mental health professional at The Missing Peace Center for Anxiety in Agoura Hills, CA, Ryan is spreading the message that recovery is possible and some astounding things can come with it.
“Harder to Breathe” is his roller-coaster memoir about how making it to the top sent him to the bottom – and how he let go of the past and embraced a new future, one breath at a time.
