Evaculation Route

I became a devoted believer in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and mindfulness exercises during the time when I had no funds for trauma treatment. This was only several months into developing full-blown PTSD and my trauma therapist introduced me to this way of training my thoughts. I ordered a workbook online and began practicing many of the tools I learned, as well as teaching them to my girls. Eventually, I became proficient enough that I would come up with my own tools and techniques that fit with my life.

I’m going to give you primer on how to begin using these skills to help with your symptoms. Even if you don’t have full-blown PTSD (and I sure hope you don’t), these can be adapted to help with any traumatic or high-stress situation.

I survived a quarter century of psychological, emotional, economic and sexual abuse. When I got out, I vowed to help others do the same and founded the Emotional Abuse Survivors Network project in 2012. Now, I offer hope and healing to others on their journey as they rediscover themselves. My forthcoming books, Bodies in the Basement and Define Winning, chronicle my experiences, escape, and recovery. There is nothing so special about me that others can't emerge and thrive.
