Memoir Therapy: Break the Hold of Past Trauma and Heal Your Story
What is Memoir Therapy? Memoir therapy is based on narrative therapy’s Narrative Worldview:
- We are experts on our own lives and we view them as separate from our problems.
- We make meaning of our lives through the stories we live out and interact with each other.
- We review the aggregate of narratives as it influences each other.
- We seek to adjust the stories we tell about our life in order to bring about positive change and better mental health.
This free writing program is for people who wish to learn how to use the memoir therapy writing process to overcome past traumatic events and life’s challenges.
We will work with the writer in 3 phases, namely:
- Psychological Introspection: We utilize reflexivity tools like Hero’s Journey, accessing Akashic Book of Life, and journaling in this process.
- Creative Writing: Here, we will be utilizing creative license to convert raw text and emotions into prose that provides a good reading experience as well as yield epiphanies for the writer.
- Editing: This is the final process where the manuscript is polished one time to take care of story flow and grammatical issues.
Each phase takes about two weeks. There will be a 1-to-1 manuscript review from a memoir writing teacher to review the whole manuscript. The end goal is to have a 50-page memoir.

This program is offered simultaneously in-person in Yanceyville, North Carolina, and online.
A Long Way From Home
War is Hell. Anyone who has ever put on a uniform and purposefully went to where the enemy was intent on killing him can attest to that. But instead of a singular definition of Hell that religion preaches, war is so much more. It is Hell on the families left behind. Hell on the mind and spirit. Hell on the nerves. Hell on coming home and trying to remember where you fit in. Yes, war is Hell. A Long Way From Home is the compilation of my experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan from 2002-2006. It gives first hand accounts of some of the most gruesome fighting and a behind the scenes look at what really went on from various levels.
