When I completed my PTSD recovery I felt compelled to raise awareness, share information and disperse education about trauma, PTSD and healing so that other survivors could heal faster while friends and family understood (and so supported) better.

I began in 2008 with a PTSD blog, then expanded to a radio show, podcast series and multiple books. I've been blessed to be recognized by and integrated into a media community that shares my intentions. This page shares some selected interviews and other media outlets that will deepen your understanding of me and my perspective, plus offer helpful resources. Enjoy!
