Hi friends, thank you for listening to the Homes & Havens Podcast, a place for conversations about home, healing, hospitality, and recovery. I cannot wait to introduce our guest for this episode, my friend Katie Woodruff. Katie is a kind, beautiful soul who practices as a therapist here in Chattanooga, TN. Her sensitivity, compassion, and wisdom is something I deeply appreciate, especially as we engage with charged topics such as trauma and addiction.
This is the first episode of our two-part conversation. This first episode will cover what trauma is and how it manifests itself in our emotional, physical, and psychological health. The next episode will cover the hope to be found in recovery and what happens when therapy works.
I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I enjoyed spending time with my friend Katie.
