Today on the podcast, one of my favorite interviewees. Why? Because this woman exudes passion and purpose for those who’ve been impacted by trauma. Cissy White is a trauma-mama writer and joy-stalking survivor. She believes it’s possible – but difficult – to live, love, and parent well while post-traumatically stressed. Her goal is to make talk about trauma and healing less clinical and more conversational, less abstract and more accessible.
