I'm CiCi, your poetry mom and trauma recovery bestie.

I’m a recovering addict, domestic abuse survivor, and published author.

I work with fellow survivors of addiction, abuse, and trauma to unearth their inner warrior.

Healing is a lifelong process requiring three main ingredients: honesty, bravery, and community support. 

I created Write to Heal to provide all that and more.

Complex-PTSD: CiCi’s Story

How the brain is affected by PTSD, what Chronic PTSD is, and my relationship with it, including my diagnosis, symptoms, and how I cope.


The ups and downs of quarantine and the struggles I’ve faced so far including mental illness, chronic pain flares, and happier things like my dog’s first birthday.
