Teresa is a survivor of child abuse by clergy with 30+ years in recovery and 15+ years in ministry. She is a grateful Christian, a practicing Catholic and, also, a certified mediator, victim’s advocate, national and international speaker and writer.

Sensitive and respectful toward denominational differences among her sisters and brothers, Teresa works to earn trust and to inspire confidence in all Christians who can, then, offer safe harbor to those who have been wounded by abuse and are in need of the Lord’s saving grace and healing Spirit.

Even though you meant harm to me, God meant it for good, to achieve this present end.
