Discover your true self and find hope beyond your messy relationships!

As a mental health therapist, Judy prepares to see her next client. As a wife, she falls apart in the midst of her husband’s psychosis. His inpatient psychiatrist says, “This is going to be a hard case.”

Judy’s first marriage of 29 years ended in divorce after toxic patterns of chronic bitterness. Facing the shame of her past and mothering four children, she recognizes divine invitations toward her authentic self. After four years into a new marriage with her beloved dance partner, Judy suddenly faces frightful realities.

Can Judy’s second marriage recover from damage caused by his psychosis?

Beyond Messy Relationships is not only an intense and dramatic memoir. It’s a mix of psychological wisdom and spiritual inspiration that helps readers make sense of their deep feelings.

In Beyond Messy Relationships, readers:

  • Discover they’re not alone as they resonate with the messy relationships of a licensed professional counselor
  • Learn a simple formula of A.I.R. to experience freedom beyond the messes
  • Connect the dots from their past to their present
  • Overcome shame so they can experience the freedom they long for

Within Beyond Messy Relationships, readers find hope through the formula of breathing in fresh A.I.R.: Awareness, Intentionality, and Risks and recognize divine invitations beyond the messes. Finding your authentic self is worth the journey.
