Sifting Through The Ashes: Finding Beauty, Peace, Love, And Strength Through Trauma

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Darla Gale’s mission is to get her book, Sifting Through The Ashes: Finding Beauty, Peace, Love, And Strength Through Trauma, into the hands of as many people who need it as possible.

The devastating Camp Fire of 2018 left many people traumatized and without a home. Soon after the fire, Gale decided to help survivors process their trauma by providing therapy sessions for the community. Sifting Through The Ashes was born from these interactions, and its purpose is to provide stories, clinical guidance and practical tips for those who have suffered a traumatic event of any kind.

PTSD is like a prison in your brain…it gets trapped in your brain: sights, sounds, smells. But the cool thing is it doesn’t have to be a life sentence.

-Darla Gale

Sifting Through The Ashes features real stories from survivors of the 2018 Camp Fire, and Gale invites readers to journey alongside the survivors as they share their experiences and search for strength and resilience in the face of tragedy.

Clinical guidance and helpful tips for self-care are also included to help readers process their own experiences. The book provides self-help exercises; psychoeducation on mental health topics like PTSD, anxiety and depression; and other valuable resources.

Sifting Through The Ashes aims to be an impactful read for survivors of fires and other disasters, first responders, anyone with PTSD, and therapists who work with trauma survivors.
