—Meet the Author—
Becky L. Jackson
Creator of the Inner Family Healing Model
I began my recovery path in 1974 by arresting an eating addiction and chemical dependencies. By taking a serious illness approach, I created the foundation for my forty-five plus years of being in remission from all addictions.
In 1976, I began my inner family healing path by designing tools to access inner wisdoms and younger ages who needed attention and healing. I created meditations, visualizations, and writing exercises to assist me on my path to healing and wholeness.
With the publication of Seeking . . . Finding . . . Healing . . . The, Complete Guide to Self-Directed Inner Family Healing, I present a path for those who want a resolution to their historical pain and are open-minded, willing, and courageous enough to trudge through this difficult work.
By traveling this healing path, you will become an ally to your younger selves, an enthusiastic participant in your daily life, and a creative influence in your future. To put it simply, this work will show you that you no longer have to be a victim of your history.
Embarking on this journey will provide you with the opportunity to step into stable self-respect, peaceful self-love, and a sense of humanity that gives life deep meaning and enduring joy.

Why The Nautilus Shell?
You may have noticed a recurring theme in my books, websites and course materials. I've used the Nautilus in my branding, not only for its beauty, but because of what it symbolizes. Because the cephalopod that lives inside the chambers of the nautilus shell continues to grow for the entirety of its lifetime, I believe we, too, can continue to grow emotionally and spiritually for a lifetime. This principle has guided me along my own path to healing and has inspired my writing and coaching.
