New Book by Dr. Lisa Vallejos

The Rocky Mountain Humanistic Counseling and Psychological Association wishes to congratulate RMHCPA Member Lisa Vallejos on the publication of her new book:

Shattered, How Everything Comes Together When It All Falls Apart chronicles the transformational journey of one mother, psychologist, and researcher who found the courage to truly live while grappling with the diagnosis of her child with a life-limiting congenital heart defect.

Written as a memoir (with the backing of a lot of solid research), this book offers an intimate journey of a parent facing the unthinkable—the possibility of outliving their child. Author Lisa Vallejos takes the reader along the journey as she experienced it firsthand. Ranging from despair to triumph, this book shows how facing death can truly be an invitation to live. Using both anecdotal experiences and established psychological research, Vallejos makes a case for trauma as a tool of transformation.

This heart-wrenching and passionate portrayal of the potent human spirit to overcome incredible odds and to achieve triumph, no matter the circumstances, is a beacon to anyone who has suffered, felt lost, or has been buckled under the weight of an irrevocable life altering experience.
