"Trauma in the Pews is prophetic, wise, educational, compassionate, autobiographical, and beautifully challenging. Ministers, lay people, spiritual directors, counselors working with spiritual concerns, and Christians affected by trauma will highly benefit from reading this book." --Mark Gregory Karris, PsyD, MDiv, LMFT, Ordained Pastor, Best-Selling Author
If you have come here as an educator, church ministry leader, survivor, or as someone wanting to understand trauma and the effects it has on your life or the lives of those you serve, work alongside, or care for, I am glad you found me! My readers have come to know me by the blue bicycle from the cover of my first book, Brave: Healing Childhood Trauma, written to encourage survivors to pursue healing. Now my trauma-informed advocacy work reaches far beyond my original mission. You can find out more by choosing a menu option.
