D’Ann is an artist, mother, cancer survivor, abuse survivor, and an addict in 20+ years of recovery, who has spent most of her life struggling with the effects of complex trauma.
Being diagnosed in 1989 at age 31 with PTSD and Dissociative Identity Disorder helped her understand what she struggled with and why. In spite of doing her best to avoid it, she became disabled in 2002.
Having discovered that the latest science intersects with and supports her faith, she’s combined that knowledge with her experience and skills as a trauma recovery coach, teaching others that each of us holds the keys to our own healing and how we can use them to free ourselves from the devastations of unresolved trauma.
