She has published four books on her model, including a full-length book that walks through discovering truth and creating emotional safety for yourself and within your relationships, and three books centered on disclosing PSB within relationships. She volunteered with law enforcement for six years, initially with the Dallas Prostitute Diversion Initiative, then as a presenter at the Dallas John School.
