Her story makes it clear that you can overcome any adversity with the willingness to ask for help.
Tanya’s Story of Loss, Grief, Depression . . . and VictoryThe death of her sister Nicole Brown Simpson, which was sensationalized in the 1994 media frenzy featuring Nicole’s husband O.J. Simpson, unleashed a flood of issues for Tanya. Prior to Nicole’s murder, Tanya had lost several other loved ones, and emotional trauma was setting in. She engaged in dysfunctional eating patterns, and she busied herself with academic work as diversions from the mounting depression. Finally, in 2004, she suffered a breakdown that actually saved her life.
She worked for three months to get back on her feet with tools for managing her emotional well-being. Today, she is a celebrity author, a voice against domestic violence, and a motivational speaker and Life Coach who helps others bounce back from adversity.
Read Tanya’s Books to Cultivate Coping SkillsTanya has written two books to help readers overcome difficult, traumatic situations. In her revealing and thought-provoking memoir, Finding Peace Amid the Chaos: My Escape from Depression and Suicide, she shares her journey of self-discovery and shows how even the most severely traumatizing life experiences can carry lessons that teach new ways of being.
In her second book with Carolyn Inman, Tanya writes about The Seven Characters of Abuse: Domestic Violence, Where It Starts and Where It Can End to help people identify domestic violence. In this break-through book, she includes her own personal stories and diary entries from her late sister, Nicole.
