Success Stories

Finally Able to Laugh!

Trudy thank you for Choice Processing and Resolution.  I am sitting on my porch in Ireland sipping a cup of coffee.  For the first time in so many years I am able to feel joy and peace. I was so haunted by my choice decision.  You've helped me get unstuck and move forward.  I can't thank you enough!

Thank you!

Trudy, Thank you for creating this resource ~ Choice Processing and Resolution!  I am finally able to start processing.  I can't thank you enough!

Client is Thankful

As an author, we don't always know if our books are dropping into the blackhole...are they helping anyone, is anyone inspired, making their way because of our labor of love?  I received the following email encouragement the other day.  It was great hearing from this reader.

Dear Trudy,

I'm writing to say thank you for writing your book, "C.P.R." -- I am about 1/2 way through, and I must admit, its harder than I imagined to complete, but at the same time it's the one piece of literature that is really compassionate and caring. I've really appreciated what I've read so far because one of the biggest emotions I've had since having my abortion 7 months ago is loneliness, and it was so nice to have someone say "you're not alone, this happens to a lot of women". The only people that know about my abortion are my husband, my counselor and my acupuncturist. I also appreciate the emphasis on journaling in your book; although it is truly difficult to re-play, I know it is good for me in the long run.

I just wanted to write to you because, as I said, I sincerely appreciated the compassion that comes across so clearly in your book. Thank you for all the work you are doing.
