SANCTUARY audiobook is now available !!!

My dear friends,

I hope this message finds you and your loved ones safe and well.

This is a timeless offering for anyone who is courageously healing emotional trauma in their lives.

A few people have asked me to turn the SANCTUARY ebook into an audiobook. I dreaded the logistics of this task and so it took me awhile to get to it. Recently, with with the help and encouragement from a few good friends, I got inspired to get’er’done.

And then an unexpected surprise happened! My dear friend Vito Acosta from Bogota, Colombia, reached out to me for the first time in many moons … and through tears and laughter, Chapter 1 got done ✅ as I read it aloud to her. You can read the story here and listen to Track 1 for free…

Thank you for all of your support for this important work.


Dear Debbie,
Sanctuary is a profoundly spiritual and practical guide to healing from CPTSD/CPTSR. You weave spiritual concepts into each of your action steps, with grace and clarity. Your own spiritual journey into healing has inspired this work that will surely touch millions of lives. I recommend this book for everyone. It is uplifting and filled with hope. May your life be abundantly blessed!

Tears are streaming down my face as I read your second book on “Joy-Based Living,” I have ordered your first book ‘again.’” I feel such “Joy” for having met you. My life is changing already as I let go of false perceptions about myself. I highly recommend your program, including your books, to anyone who suffers from Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD) and/or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

I kept attracting relationships and people into my life (personally and professionally) who would take way more than they would give and where I would give way more than I would take.
SANCTUARY immediately showed me the main holes in my healing journey. I can now see exactly what steps to take next in order to be more free and more empowered in every area of my life.
