Don’t miss clinical psychiatrist and author Dr Patricia Peters Martin on morphmom moments radio tonight!With a focus on domestic abuse and violence-Dr. Martin has co-authored two inspirational books dealing with abuse.
Her first book titled “The Other Couch: Discovering Women’s Wisdom in Therapy” is about the lessons the patient teaches the psychologist. It contains inspirational stories of 36 courageous women who “morph” from devastating circumstances in their lives to women of strength and wisdom.
Her second book titled “Liars, Cheats, and Creeps: Leaving the Sociopath Behind” takes the reader into a women’s support group for women suffering from domestic abuse and violence. The reader follows the women through 52 sessions of a support group where they hear the voices and dialog of real women as they morph from victims to survivors to thrivers. The book is a lifeline for women in abusive relationships, written by Dr. Martin and a co-author, Renee Forte, who uses a pen name because she is a member of the support group and a former victim of domestic abuse.

President and Founder of Trish McEvoy Beauty
“The Makeup of a Confident Woman: The Science of Beauty, the Gift of Time, and the Power of Putting Your Best Face Forward.”
“the counterintuitive approach to radiating beauty from the outside in”
Renowned makeup artist and author, known for teaching the Power of Makeup, Trish founded her company in the mid-seventies when the only readily available makeup tools were the sponge applicators that came free with compacts. Taking matters into her own hands, she hand cut art-store paintbrushes into mistake-proof shapes, manufactured her creations and soon developed a cult following among women and artists the world over. In 1995 Trish changed the face of makeup with the invention of her patented Makeup Planner beauty organizer, the one-and-only portable makeup vanity.
