About Janyne

(Think Janine)

I am author, Dr. Janyne McConnaughey, retired educator, wife, mother and grandmother. I have a story--one that was subconsciously repressed until six years ago when I chose to sit on a therapist's couch. Now healed, and continuing to heal,  I am on a mission!

With the publication of my third book, my mission of helping others heal is in motion! My days are filled with writing, communicating with my readers, speaking, and participating in BRAVE book clubs. It is more than I could have imagined!

Until recently, I lived in a 5th wheel with my husband, Scott, at the foot of Pikes Peak. Now I call the Seattle area home!    Learn more . . .

My Mission

To clearly articulate both positive and negative effects of early nurturing and experiences on lifelong behavior and thinking patterns while promoting effective educational, spiritual, and therapeutic methods for the healing of inadequate attachment and childhood trauma.
