Every day, hundreds of Americans are affected by sexual violence. Although, it often feels as if you are the only one.

In detailing my personal journey through sexual assault recovery, I aim to validate that what you (or a loved one) feels is normal, and that you (or a loved one) is not alone. I  will also demonstrate the complexity and reality of posttraumatic stress disorder, and, above all, prove that recovery is possible and worthwhile.
