DID YOU KNOW?

THE MOST COMMON CAUSE OF PTSD IS SEXUAL ASSAULT.

PTSD AFFECTS 10% OF WOMEN AND 4% OF MEN.

70% OF ADULTS WILL EXPERIENCE PTSD IN THEIR LIFETIME.

TRAUMA IS A HUMAN EXPERIENCE.

YOU’RE HERE BECAUSE YOU HAVE A HEART.

Cultures influence how we respond to trauma. Victims and survivors of abuse often feel ostracized and ashamed of their experience. I’m here to share my journey, because censorship only perpetuates shame. Together, we can live and love beyond the silence.
