Lyschel Burket, PCC, FRLC, APSATS-c, ADOH, has been working with women since 2008 as they take steps toward healing and their pursuit of God. She has facilitated support groups specific to partners of sex addicts since 2013 both locally in Knoxville, TN and online through Vicki Tiede Ministries.

Lyschel is the Lead Hope Caster and Founder of Hope Redefined. She desires to be a part of something so much bigger than herself as she continues to expand the reach of support for women who are facing similar things to her own recovery story. She and her husband, Garren, have five kiddos. Lyschel and Garren have been on the road of recovery since 2006.


Marisha Robinson, LMSW, holds a Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work from the University of Tennessee.  She has provided individual and group therapy in schools, community agencies, hospitals, and in private practice at Ebenezer Counseling Services. At Hope Redefined, she develops curriculum, teaches, and facilitates groups and retreats. In her work, she combines a solid Christian perspective with professional expertise in order to bring hope and help to those who are hurting. Although she has enjoyed working in many areas over the years, her greatest passion is found in helping women heal from the trauma of sexual betrayal. Marisha and her husband, Roby, have been married since 2000 and have two teenage children.


Debbie Ferree is a certified coach, APSATS trained, and has experienced betrayal trauma, as well as childhood sexual abuse. She is newly divorced, has five grown children, two grandchildren, and loves the Lord. While passionate about helping women who have experienced betrayal in a 1 on 1 atmosphere, she also loves to facilitate groups where women can experience healing in community. She’s an avid reader, loves to spend time with family and friends, homeschooled all of her kids, can assemble a 1,000 piece puzzle in a fairly short time and is a force to be reckoned with in a game of Phase 10!


Shawna Meek, CPC, PCC, APSATS-CPC, truly understands the roots of attachment distress in a marriage, even after addiction sobriety. Her personal story began in 2000, and after many years of mentoring women, she knew the Lord was calling her to an extensive coaching training program and ultimately APSATS as a certified partner coach. She is passionate about supporting women as they face specific challenges on this journey, including boundaries during separation and divorce, abuse and gaslighting, therapeutic disclosure preparation, intimacy anorexia and deprivation, and emotional and sexual reintegration.

Shawna and her husband, Kevin, live in Gilbert, Arizona, and have a story of God’s incredible redemption following separation, divorce, re-marriage and betrayal. They have four amazing kiddos ranging from elementary school age to a young adult in college – both biological and adopted. She knows the Lord has a mighty plan in all our stories, and no matter the outcome, He will bring hope even when it seems there is no hope.
