Struggling to break free from your past? Here, you will learn to live a life you love, not the life your abuser left you with.

I too have felt my joy taken by past trauma. I was left with PTSD and a dissociative disorder, both disabling conditions. But, I worked hard and dug deep—transforming the pain of my past into a life I love.
