    You Are Safe Now With Tricia Lott Williford & Jana Richardson

    You Are Safe Now With Tricia Lott Williford & Jana Richardson

    In this trauma healing conversation, I am joined with Tricia Lott Williford & Jana Richardson, MA, LPC, authors of the book, You Are Safe Now: A Survivor's Guide to Listening to Your Gut, Healing from Abuse, and Living in Freedom. This conversation is so unique as you will hear from both sides of the Trauma healing journey. Tricia shares from her perspective of feeling stuck in overwhelm & PTSD, and how she was able to slowly move through with the gentle support and guidance of her skilled therapist. Jana shares what it was like working with Tricia and what really helped and supported her through. They talk about the process of untangling the trauma and coming to the understanding of grooming, manipulation and sexual and spiritual abuse by a person of trust.

    Emotionally Healthy Faith & Healing with Dr. Alison Cook

    Emotionally Healthy Faith & Healing with Dr. Alison Cook

    Today's conversation I am joined with author and psychologist Dr. Alison Cook. We talk about healing trauma, spiritual bypassing and the need for holistic and emotionally safe trauma informed care and education in our faith communities.
    Many who have experienced trauma as children have learned to adapt by disconnecting from their emotions & feelings. Faith communities need to be emotionally healthy places where compassion and empathy is extended to those suffering not only spiritually but emotionally as well. Alison shares the importance of not denying one’s emotional experience, and instead to begin to gently turn towards them with curiosity and compassion.

The Conservative Evangelical Christian Vibe

Christian speakers on this podcast often fail to see how Christian supremacy and Christian nationalism and the patriarchy, misogyny, and homophobia that accompany it are often the cause of trauma in the U.S.
