About the Author

It is my opinion that my real life experiences with sexual abuse form my credentials and qualifications as an author of a book of such genres. I've gained additional insight through my current profession working with many clients who've been impacted by abuse in one way or another. My fourteen years as an educator at the elementary (k-8) level dealing with abuse on yet another forum has also been an asset to my writing. Currently, I am self-employed as an alternative and massage therapist. I rely on my intuition and ability to discern and redirect clients' irregular energetic patterns that may be negatively impacting their well being. My business is based in Maine but I do remote sessions via phone with clients as far away as Arizona, California and Missouri. My most precious part of my personal life is my son. When I am not sitting in the stands of his sports games, I am out enjoying nature and the gifts of the great outdoors.
