When we discover our husband or boyfriend has a secret life of sexual and/or sexualized activities, we often focus on their needs instead of our own. Like an accident victim walking around with internal injuries, we don't realize the damage done to us. Trauma symptoms start to emerge, like an alarm system warning us to take care. Often we don't have the self-awareness to recognize them. Things get worse. This nine video series helps you do better than that.

Nine videos include: 1. Introduction & The Biggest Challenge. 2. What Price Are You Paying With Your Health? 3. How Partners Describe Their Trauma Symptoms. 4. Managing & Mitigating Symptoms (Part 1). 5. Managing & Mitigating Symptoms (Part 2). 6. Thoughts About Love. 7. Loving Yourself Changes Everything. 8. Useful Resources For Education & Healing. 9. Stewards of Hope, Not Hopium.

Print materials go with each video that invite you to work with concepts introduced, read further about ideas and applications, or provide video content for personal reference. Nine videos total about three hours.

A three-decade veteran of coming alongside people in crisis and change, I decided to share what I have learned along the way. But I'm not done learning, so I named my school for my own truth--"Still Learning". My clientele include partners of sex addicts, those at risk for compassion fatigue, trauma and disaster survivors, and people who just want to integrate their many life experiences in healthy ways. Sound interesting? It is! I bring three degrees (including an M.A. and an M.Div.) a few certifications (including Compassion Fatigue Specialist-Therapist), and years of experience serving the client groups named above. My purpose here: I invest in you and create opportunities for you to invest in yourself. Heal gently. Grow wiser. Live courageously.
