Here at CPTSD Foundation, we are taking a revolutionary approach to healing from complex trauma. We understand each survivor heals in their own way and in their own time. There is no cookie-cutter approach to healing and building up resilience.
Being survivors ourselves, we know the importance of ongoing support, even when seeing a trauma-informed helping professional. That’s why we’ve developed Daily Recovery Support, to help take your journey to the next level of healing.
We invite you to learn more about our daily calls and consider joining us as we cover a wide range of topics which are sure to inspire and encourage you as you begin or continue to break free from the chains of trauma and seek the life you dream of and deserve.
