Join the amazing mother and daughter from the Which Way podcast, Shari and Jann Simmons, with Kristin discussing the healing journey of mothers and daughers. 

In Which Way?…Mother and daughter tell parallel stories about trauma and its impact on the generations that follow. Jann Simmons’ story is a heart wrenching account of an orphaned child who suffered brutality at the hands of her mother, as well as many others. As an adult, Jann’s mind was closed to the horrors of her abuse, betrayal and abandonment until the day they all came flooding back to her conscious mind. That awareness began a 40-year transformation from a passive victim to resilient warrior. As a young teen, Shari struggled to make sense of her mother’s pain, but as a career mental-health therapist, she began to understand her mother’s journey and learn how trauma affects the brain. She offers strategies in this book for those suffering from past or present trauma or for those who love someone who is suffering. Both women tell their stories and drive home the fact that the choices we make can lead to self-hatred and resentment or to a life of courage, healing and beauty. Which Way? is an unforgettable story of love and transformation that will resonate with mothers, daughters, trauma survivors, those who love them and those who’ve made a career out of helping them heal.

As authors and motivational speakers, Shari and Jann Simmons are a dynamic mother/daughter duo whose passion and expertise leave audiences inspired and equipped with tools to manage trauma, stress and relationships. When not speaking, Shari is a consultant, professor and licensed therapist who works with adolescents, adults, couples and families. Jann is a personal coach for women who have experienced past trauma. Both women have witnessed the power of unlocking personal stories and the resiliency that follows.
