April 9 Book Release : You Are Safe Now


Here’s what happened.

More than a dozen years ago, my husband died unexpectedly, and the blog I had been writing briefly went viral. I wrote a million words, I had thousands of conversations, and I authored a few books. At the same time, I spent an hour or more with my therapist each week, where we unpacked a hidden level of trauma that I wasn’t talking about anywhere else.

For years, I had been targeted and groomed by a serial sexual predator. In the weeks after my husband died, my abuser manipulated my vulnerability, trapped me in a toxic web, and sexually exploited me.

Those are a dozen layers of horrifying, and it’s further complicated by the facts that the predator was a caregiver, a leader in a position of trust, and a woman.

My expert therapist, Jana Richardson, who is trained in trauma, grief, addiction, and EMDR, counseled me to write my story in the pages of my journal. I wrote for hours, days, weeks, and years, until finally I could say out loud what had happened. And that’s when Jana and I realized that the pages of my notebooks held a guidebook for healing from manipulation, spiritual abuse, and sexual exploitation.

Through the next three years, Jana and I co-authored a groundbreaking book. I wrote through the trauma, and Jana wrote through the treatment of abuse, recovery, and freedom. Peer-reviewed by mental-health professionals, this book provides honesty, clarity, hope, and healing. This book is a vaccine in the face of an epidemic, as it promotes our best defense against abuse: knowledge and awareness of how it begins, how we can end it, and how we can heal from it.

If you are in a toxic relationship,
if you are a professional seeking to treat someone in recovery,
or if you love someone who is on a path to healing and you seek to understand their road,
this is the book you need.

We believe it will be a groundbreaking resource, and we are eager to get this into your hands.

This free event includes readings from both authors, signings, and my new curated talk: This Is How It Happens.

Join us on Tuesday, April 9, for the official release of You Are Safe Now.
