Hi, I’m Missy – I help women on their journey to recover from emotional abuse. 

I started working in the mental health field in 1997 and throughout my career, I discovered how prevalent emotional abuse is in romantic relationships and how the aftermath of this kind of abuse impacts the lives of those who experience it.  Time and time again, my clients would say “I’m no longer in that relationship… why do I still feel so stuck?” And although I have a lot of clinical experience to help answer that question and help these women start to heal, it was my own experience with it that helped me to truly understand the depth of their suffering.  It was through my own healing journey, that I felt called to help as many women as I can to heal, reclaim their power and transform their lives in the aftermath of emotional abuse.

 I know the pain and the fear.  I know what it’s like to feel stuck and confused about why it’s so hard to move forward when the relationship that caused you so much harm ends. I get it and have made it my mission to find a way to help you to recover and live your best life. The HRT METHOD was created as a result of my clinical and personal experiences with emotional abuse, and is the most effective way to get out of the darkness and into the light of the life you desire, a life you deserve and a life you are meant to live.

Let’s do this together <3
