Recovering and finding support

Though I have worked as a psychologist with many victims of sexual abuse, helping them uncover and heal fragments of their uncovered memories, Jean brings together a much broader and more complete picture of her journey. Writing her story is so important in her personal healing, but also for others recovering from sexual abuse, freeing them from the feelings of guilt and responsibility of victimhood, and finding support in coming out of the emotional prison of the abused.
