For millions of people worldwide, Lucinda Bassett is a symbol of hope and strength. She has dedicated her career to helping others achieve personal transformation; guiding people through fear, challenge, change, and loss to a life of happiness and fulfillment. Lucinda’s own story of personal transformation starts with overcoming a debilitating anxiety disorder. Severely affected by anxiety and depression in her 20's, she discovered the solution to her emotional pain and distress. Determined to help others do the same, she founded the acclaimed Midwest Center for Stress and Anxiety with Dr. Philip Fisher. Lucinda's life-changing techniques have been shared with a variety of major corporations, professional associations and educational institutions. She has appeared on hundreds of national radio and television programs including Oprah, The View, Regis and Robert Schuller's Hour of Power. Lucinda and her emotional wellness solutions have been featured in numerous high-profile publications including Health, Family Circle, Cosmopolitan and even the Journal of Clinical Psychology. In her latest book releases, TRUTH BE TOLD: A Memoir of Success, Suicide, and Survival, Lucinda Bassett not only celebrates her life’s triumph (going from a singer and radio host to a great mother, an adoring wife and founder of a multi-million dollar business), but goes back further to the traumas of her childhood. The youngest of five, Lucinda “Cindy” Redick grew up poor in Findlay, Ohio on a dead end street by a railroad track. She lived in a constant state of turmoil and trepidation over when her father would come home—stinking drunk. As the daughter of a raging alcoholic, Lucinda developed a need to “fix” people—an instinctual technique that grew from her own life experiences. Yet, her father wasn’t her worst nightmare.
