Women around the world experience this every day. Across race, religion, culture, and socioeconomic status, women collectively run into this common barrier – it’s called Patriarchy Stress Disorder (PSD) .

Her work has led to the creation of groundbreaking programs, helping thousands of women find freedom and reclaim their authentic selves.
