When we experience something traumatic, the focus is usually on getting ourselves through the event as quickly and safely as possible.

Oftentimes, we may not realize that trauma leaves indelible marks on our hearts, minds, and bodies, and the work we do after the immediate trauma is over is just as important as getting through the painful experience.

Collier Landry has a unique understanding of trauma’s long-term effects.
