Trauma Recovery Coach,
speaker, and author
My desire is to walk beside women who have experienced childhood sexual abuse (CSA) and spiritual betrayal trauma (SBT).
Together we will work to find safety, wholeness and a path forward. My passion is to help fellow victim/survivors rediscover the beautiful person, you were created to be.
