IT'S OKAY NOT TO BE OKAY ... Right Now.
108 pages hardcover book edition

While living through a traumatic experience, the last thing you want to do is read a book. But what about a survivor's manual that will ease your emotional pain? What about a book that teaches you how to regain control of your life and find hope in a “new normal” post-trauma life.

This book is not about undoing years of emotional suffering resulting from a traumatic experience. It is about preventing those years of turmoil altogether.

When you’re physically sick or injured, there’s a rush to address your physical needs. We certainly don’t wait to stop profuse bleeding.  In the same way, we must not wait to address the emotional hemorrhage.

This book will help to keep your traumatic life experience from becoming your life. It will teach you what you need to know now and empower you with practical strategies, not just to survive this traumatic experience, but to truly thrive in spite of it.
