As a distraught and desperate teenager, she made some very unhealthy choices, including a suicide attempt and a planned pregnancy. In her twenties, therapy was instrumental in her healing and recovery, but it was spirituality in her forties that taught her Who She Really Is. In 2005, Darlene launched her interactive child abuse effects website after she trained and certified as a violence and abuse prevention educator. That same year, she published her memoir, From Victim to Victory: How I got over the devastating effects of child abuse and moved on with my life, and was nominated for the British Columbia Courage to Come Back Awards.
