Journey On from Shame to Grace w/ D.J. Burr - S1E1
Listener discretion is advised.  In the premiere episode, Journey On host, D.J. Burr, shares his story of childhood sexual abuse and the journey he took to heal from the hurt and pain. D.J. is a psychotherapist in Seattle, WA; best-selling author of the memoir, I Just Wanted Love: Recovery of a Codependent, Sex and Love Addict; and he is the owner of ABLE Counseling Services in WA state. Each episode of Journey On features real-life accounts of sexual abuse and assault. You may be triggered by what you hear. I advise self-care tools; reaching out to a friend, seeing your therapist, picking a new time to listen to the show, or even listening with a group of friends. Take care of yourself first.   Music peaceOut by airtone (c) copyright 2013 Licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution (3.0) license. http://dig.ccmixter.org/files/airtone/43014 Ft: KungFu Sunday by cdk (c) copyright 2016 Licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution (3.0) license. http://dig.ccmixter.org/files/cdk/53755 Follow #JourneyOn Website Facebook Twitter Newsletter Instagram
