I know I keep saying it, but I love doing this podcast!

And I love it because I get to speak with amazing individuals like my guest here today, Alisa Zipursky. You can hear the passion and compassion in this woman’s voice and it soars throughout this entire interview. 

Alisa is a storyteller, writer, facilitator and childhood sexual abuse survivor. Her work focuses on offering emotional support to other young survivors healing from sexual trauma.
