Teri Matthews

I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration and Accounting from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. I've also had the opportunity and privilege of being a part of the wonderful homeschooling community of Western Christian PSP for eight years.

I will never go skydiving again! But I do enjoy traveling, camping, hiking, and learning about history because there is a story in everything! 

Betrayal trauma is something that I've previously experienced. My path to recovery was made so much easier once I found others to walk alongside me. For this reason, I'm passionate about walking with others on their journey towards healing.

Voice of Truth

If you've experienced betrayal trauma, you may feel that you don't have a voice. You've been decieved and may not know what your truth is. The truth was hidden from you, preventing you from living an authentic and empowered life. You may even believe the lies and painful negative messages that keep you stuck in your healing process. God has plans for you, plans for a hope and a future. Hear the voice of truth, and move bravely towards that future and the person He created you to be.

"With the voice of truth and the power of God ... we continue"
(2 Corinthians 6:7 - The Voice Bible).
