I’ll be the keynote speaker at A Time for Healing Women’s Retreat, for women healing from spousal betrayal. This retreat is unusual in that the purpose is to give participants the ability to try various trauma healing modalities (ART, cranial sacral, yoga, massage, etc) at the retreat. So the cost is very low ($25-60) including meals and activities, with the added option to sign up (and pay for) individual sessions with the various therapists. It’s in Salt Lake County, UT and is coming up this month, so grab your spot soon!

I’m excited to announce that next month I am presenting at 3 conferences!
I am presenting at the North Star Conference, March 6, 2020 in Salt Lake City. This organization is a wonderful faith-based group that works with the LGBTQ community who want to live lives of faith. Their theme this conference is “Be Still and Know.” I’m excited to combine the therapeutic angle with a faith-based angle to speak in their mixed-orientation marriage betrayal trauma track. I’ve learned so much from the amazing people I have worked with already.
The next conference at which I will be presenting is Determined to Rise. This will be a weekend retreat for Betrayal Trauma and other forms of emotional abuse. This retreat is March 20-22, in Southern Utah. It is a wonderful retreat that combines therapeutic presentations with experiential exercises, trauma releasing movement, etc. I love how cost effective and amazing these retreats turn out and am thrilled to be a part of it again this year.
Finally, I’ve been invited back to present again on Betrayal Trauma at the Utah Coalition Against Pornography. This year the conference is entitled “Developing Healthy Connection: Healthy Conversation, Healthy Sexuality, Healthy Families, Healthy Communities, Healthy Living.” (What a great title!). The Conference is March 28, 2020 all day in the Salt Palace in Salt Lake City, Utah. I’m excited not only to present, but also to have a booth there to promote my book, as well as my courses. (If you’re interested in my courses, check out the tab on that above).
I hope to see you at one or more of these conferences. Come find me, I’d love to talk with you.
UCAP St George is coming up in just a few weeks. I’m so excited! There will be speakers and booths with wonderful information for addicts, betrayed spouses, parents who want to teach their children about healthy sexuality, etc. I look forward to seeing you there! Come see me at my booth for books, courses, and giveaways!
The podcast I did with Steve from UnashamedUnafriad just went live! His podcast tells recovery stories of hope, that bust shame, and are unafraid of coming to Christ. He also answers questions from anonymous listeners. I was asked to be the therapist expert on one of these Q&A podcasts. We were joined by Steve’s delightful wife Kayla, and another amazing couple in recovery, James and Kristy. Steve’s podcast is so down to earth and full of hope and healing, I recommend it to everyone. If you’d like to listen to us talk about hope and healing in recovery, you can click the link, or his full lineup is available at the podcast subscription site of your choice.

I have been derelict in posting about the newer website put out by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, entitled Addressing Pornography. I had the opportunity to assist in writing content for parts of this site. While you may not agree with every word posted, there are some wonderful resources here for those who struggle with porn use, for betrayed spouses, and for parents seeking to protect their children. I highly recommend checking it out and exploring what content connects with you.
Brittany Homer over at raisingtodayskids.com interviewed me as part of her recent podcast episode on the most important things parents should know about pornography. You can check it out with the link (for iTunes), listen on any other podcast app, or go to raisingtodayskids.com to listen on the website.
I will be recording a full episode with her next month about how parents can talk to their kids about sex. So stay tuned…
Come visit me at UCAP—the Utah Coalition Against Pornography. It’s the largest conference of its kind in the U.S. This year it is on February 22, at the Salt Palace, in SLC. This conference has topics for everyone including those struggling with pornography, to betrayed spouses, to parents looking to protect children, to teens and young adults. See their website for details and registration.
This year is exciting because I have been asked to speak on Betrayal Trauma!
As usual, I will also have a booth at the conference for my book that helps parents teach their children about healthy sexuality. And I will be promoting course information on my new online live courses for betrayal trauma and for parents teaching children.
I hope to see you there!
