Trauma and Healing

“Trauma is personal. It does not disappear if it is not validated. When it is ignored or invalidated the silent screams continue internally heard only by the one held captive. When someone enters the pain and hears the screams healing can begin.”

Danielle Bernock

Trauma creates change you don’t choose. Healing is about creating change you do choose.

Michelle Rosenthal

Perhaps the butterfly is proof that you can go through a great deal of darkness yet become something beautiful.


Let’s walk this journey together.
