Brett A. Loftis, JD
Chief Executive Officer, Crossnore School & Children’s Home
Founder and Faculty Member, Center for Trauma Resilient Communities
bloftis@crossnore.org

“Brett Loftis has a passion for protecting the most vulnerable children that is apparent from the moment he says hello. As the Chief Executive Officer of Crossnore School & Children’s Home, Brett leads an organization that is dedicated to growing healthy futures for children and families. His experience working in a residential program for at-risk children and as a Guardian ad litem in South Carolina, a youth minister in Texas, and as an attorney and the Executive Director of the Council for Children’s Rights in Charlotte, NC positioned him well to assume the executive role at Crossnore in 2013.

Under Brett’s leadership, Crossnore effectively completed their Second Century campaign surpassing their goal to build the organization’s endowment fund, built a new high school building at Williams Academy which opened in 2015, and constructed three new cottages on the Avery campus which opened in 2016. His executive leadership and strategic planning with the Board of Trustees led Crossnore to a successful merger with The Children’s Home in Winston-Salem, NC to become Crossnore School & Children’s Home in 2017. Services are expanding to underserved counties in western North Carolina through a satellite office opened in Hendersonville, NC in early 2018. He co-founded the Center for
Trauma Resilient Communities, a program of Crossnore School & Children’s Home, in 2018.

Brett received his undergraduate degrees in Sociology and Political Science from Furman University. His passion for children eventually sent him to Wake Forest University School of Law to continue his career in child advocacy. He serves on numerous statewide committees and boards of directors, and he speaks statewide and nationally about children’s issues. Brett has completed the Train the Trainer program with David McCorkle from the Sanctuary Institute and helps to lead a team of 42 Sanctuary trainers on Crossnore’s campuses.

Brett and his family live on the Avery county campus of Crossnore School & Children’s Home and in his free time, he loves to coach youth soccer and basketball. Brett’s greatest love is his wife, Sally, and their three sons, Will, Elijah, and Lawson.”

She is a senior teacher in the Himalayan Yoga Meditation tradition; and an experienced Facilitator of Scott Kiloby’s Living Inquiries.

‘Fast forward 25 years from when I first learned meditation in the early nineties. I see and love myself. I am authentic and connect deeply. My body is relaxed and a known space. Trauma is largely healed and resolved. I am mostly free of reactivity and I have skills to work with thoughts and sensation. I know from experience I can be with whatever is arising in this space and time. I feel, at 66, that I am now an emotionally mature adult.’

‘Lynn has experienced a profound recognition of present moment awareness and embodies it naturally.  That’s the kind of teacher anyone would want, for if one’s teacher does not have the direct experience of what is being taught, true transformation just cannot happen.’ Scott Kiloby

Bio:

“In her practice, Kelly McDaniel, LPC, NCC, CSAT, author and psychotherapist, offers Individual Intensives for women living with the generational legacy of Mother Hunger. Kelly works carefully and confidentially with clients as they navigate the tender, primitive wound that comes from an early broken heart.

Kelly is writing a new book about Mother Hunger®. to be published by Hay House in 2021. Expanding her concept of Mother Hunger from Ready to Heal (McDaniel, 2008), she has developed a treatment process to soothe the complex betrayal trauma that lies beneath maladaptive eating habits and what she calls Intimacy Intolerance.

Kelly is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) since 2005 and a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC). Her background includes a Master’s Degree in English Literature from Georgetown University in Washington, DC and a Master’s Degree in Counseling from St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, TX.

Additional training includes Sue Johnson’s ‘Emotionally Focused Therapy’, Pia Mellody’s ‘PIT model’, EMDR ‘Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing’ as well as Family Constellation work.

In 2008, Gentle Path Press published McDaniel’s first book Ready to Heal written for women healing from addictive love and sex. Ready to Heal outlines the inescapable impasse that occurs for women programmed for love but pathologized for desire.

In 2012, McDaniel collaborated with 9 other clinicians to write and publish Making Advances: A Comprehensive Guide for the Treatment of Female Love and Sex Addicts. At conferences and workshops, Kelly speaks and teaches about the cultural legacy for women that creates Mother Hunger, Addiction and Heartbreak.”
