“I’m not afraid of your story.”


Hi, I'm Krisy.

I’m a licensed therapist with a Ph.D., and a breast cancer survivor with PTSD.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 38 years old, a statistical anomaly that took me to the brink of death so often I should have been offered a punch card. The treatments, surgeries, and medications that saved my life also left me with medical trauma and PTSD.

My life, as I knew it, is gone.

Now, my mission is to share knowledge and advocate for anyone experiencing medical trauma and PTSD.  You are not alone in this. You don't have to suffer in silence.
