Resources on PTSD:

  • Book: “The Body Keeps The Score: Brain Mind and Body in the Healing of Trauma” by Besser Van Der Kolk, M.D.
  • On Amazon video there is a great documentary that addresses PTSD - consequences and overcoming. It’s called “Quiet Explosions: Healing the Brain”

She has two upcoming projects on the subject: A book she’s writing in the early stages now called “A Warrior’s Hymn - How to bounce back from adversity and find the champion within”. And a podcast on the same topic.  

She’s also planning on having an online vocal training course by August 2021.
