2020 Coaching Client

The Proceeding from Pain to Purpose Workbook has changed my life by helping me to recognize how previous hurt impacts my life today. It also empowers me to use that same pain to help others. 

Domestic Violence Shelter Director

Proceeding from Pain to Purpose was a great resource for me! I used the workbook to help facilitate several support groups working with women fleeing from domestic violence. The workbook was a useful tool to help clients work through an array of emotions. 

Jacqueline Parks-Leach, Therapist

I've used the Proceeding from Pain to Purpose Workbook in many ways. Several of my clients have survived trauma. The fact of knowing they are not alone is life altering for my clients! They are able to identify and relate to many of the emotions. I LOVE this book and will continue to use it!
