Welcome to Surviving Childhood Trauma, a place where survivors can connect, find support, and find resources to aid in trauma healing & recovery.
Hi, I’m Shanon
Welcome to my healing journey.
I am the mother of two and the wife to wonderful man. I am a writer, an advocate, and a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse, and neglect.
After 20 years of dissociation, I found myself spiraling in January of 2017. I was 37 years old. By March I was diagnosed with (Complex) PTSD and my healing journey began. To help me along the way I have used conventional therapy as well as EMDR. Additionally I uss reiki, metaphysical practices, a strong support system, and the survivor community here as part of her healing and self-care tool-kit.
Before I began sharing my story publicly and began providing peer support and advocacy to survivors, I worked in the non-profit sector organizing community around important issues and helping people connect with the tools and resources to help them live their best life.
I am glad you are here and I hope that you find comfort and reassurance in my writing that you are not alone and you don’t have to do this alone.
Connect with me 1:1 for peer support and guidance, or join a Survivor’s Circle Peer Support Group meeting and connect with other survivors.
I look forward to connecting.
