  • Christie shares her story of recovery and success after a toxic relationship
  • Sexual assault in the workplace
  • Getting clear that being abused is not your fault
  • Why it takes a long time to recover, so be gentle with yourself
  • How working with an experienced therapist is an important part of recovery
  • How Christie thrives in her consulting work in what she calls the “eatertainment space”

Christie Lawler is a successful consultant in what she calls the “eatertainment space.” Very clever! She has thrived, but she walked through a lot of pain, second-guessing, and wondering. Being in a toxic relationship is confusing, and it has an aftermath, for sure!

Christie shares how she recovered, and why it took a long time. (That’s common, and usually necessary when it’s done well.) Learn from her story because, as you will hear, she didn’t focus on healing as her first step. Many folks don’t. But, not dealing with abuse in toxic relationships is unwise. You need to get help to heal, and Christie did.

Be inspired by her candid story, and what she has gone on to achieve.
