I am something of an ambitious and starry eyed dreamer. I donít know my limits which can be positive and challenging. I want to believe that anything is possible and for the most part I do.
I am passionate about many things, which can mean that I have strong opinions but I am always willing to listen and try to keep an open mind that is able to change.
My healing journey from the wounds of childhood sexual abuse began when I was only 13 years old after a series of self destructive behaviors landed me in therapy. Sadly, this was my first "rock bottom" moment. Many more would follow. A year later I confronted the man who abused me for many years. When he denied everything I felt as if I had been permanently silenced.
I was not silenced. At 25 I have reclaimed my voice, and it is stronger then ever. I am determined to share my voice in the hope that I can reach those who suffer like I did. It has been an interesting journey and in the end I wouldn't trade in any aspect of it. I am in love with life again but it has taken every step to get to this point. I thank God for the struggle that made me who I am today.
In my spare time I run a website for Survivors and Secondary Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse.
I am in the process of creating a second, more personal website. You can find my poetry and journal there at:
In addition I co-author a webpage called The Survivor Archives that features Survivors Inspirational Stories.
I have kept one journal after another for 14 years.
I believe that we are spiritual beings on a human journey (somebody once said that and they were right) not the other way around. I spend a lot of time thinking about the nature of life. Iím convinced that people are inherently good Ė just a little lost; but we all do the best we can.
