Teresa B Pasquale is a trauma therapist, yoga teacher, “crooked mystic”, and 18-30’s spirituality program leader within the Episcopal tradition. She is also a trauma survivor and suffered with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) for over 4 years before finding healing in a variety of places, faces, and graces. Now in trauma recovery she is a passionate advocate for building understanding and de-stigmatizing trauma/PTSD, and informing people that there is a way out of the broken places.
After four years in the darkness of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Teresa woke up--in slow and painful fits and starts. Like a process of birthing and with the sensation of tearing wide open, she was given life again.
In the essays and reflections in mending broken Teresa takes you on the journey of one woman trying to find her way out of painful darkness, and into the light of recovery.
