Nov 19: Terra Nova Books Presents Live on Zoom with Carrie Ishee

As the world navigates a collective Underworld experience, I am honored to share my story. I hope it provides inspiration for victims of abuse, trauma, and tragedy, and educates professionals on the dangers of the slippery slope.Please join me for my book launch of “Seduced into Darkness:  Transcending my Psychiatrist’s Sexual Abuse”

Illuminating the Shadows

Everywhere you look it seems the shadow side of humanity is revealing itself. What used to lie in the dark, shrouded by secrets and denial, is coming to light daily.  Recently, former presidential candidate Andrew Yang’s wife Evelyn courageously shared her experience of sexual assault by her OBGYN.  Her doctor violated numerous patients, lost his […]
