Healing from Betrayal Trauma With Michelle Mays
On today's episode I am joined with Michelle Mays.
Michelle Mays is a Licensed Professional Counselor and expert in treating sexual betrayal and trauma. She's also the author of the book The Betrayal Bind: How to Heal When the Person You Love the Most Has Hurt You the Worst. She reveals the depth of the devastating dilemma that betrayed partners face when their significant other is unsafe to connect with, yet connection is the key to healing.
Michelle looks at betrayal through the lens of attachment, as our attachment system is the very thing that connects us with anyone in our lives, and how betrayal causes a break in the attachment bond to the person we are closest with, shattering trust, and leaving a betrayed partner feeling unsafe and violated.
This was a very informative and rich conversation.

Prayed Upon, Breaking Free From Therapist Abuse with Amy Nordhues
*Trigger warning: Talk of Sexual abuse
On today's episode I sat down with Amy Nordhues, author and survivor of both childhood sexual abuse and sexual abuse as an adult at the hands of a mental health professional.
Her story is detailed in her book “Prayed Upon, Breaking Free From Therapist Abuse.”
During our conversation Amy touches on some of the following:
The inner workings of the abuse process of adult victims
-How past childhood trauma can make an adult vulnerable to predators
-Understanding how an otherwise functional adult can be duped provides much needed healing for the victim and aides loved ones in providing support
-Recognizing and bringing “into the light” the defective beliefs that are causing victims to doubt their own realities and become ensnared by abusers
Thank you so much Amy for sharing your vulnerable and personal experiences with the world in hopes of helping others feel less alone and more empowered.

Feeling Safe Is Essential To Healing
I am still in vacation mode and have taken a little break from recording and sharing, however I was inspired to record a short video after I shared a post over on IG which says "Feeling Safe is Essential To Healing." I realized a little video may be helpful to elaborate just a tiny bit. Should be back to recording sometime in August.
