Hi, my name's Ana. I'm an author of Trauma We Don't Talk About series.

I try throughout my work to help people find solace, healing, and self-compassion on the road to trauma recovery and help you know that you are not alone. We all share trauma.

Read my life journey

I lived through 3 different wars from the age of 14 to 22, survived open-space bombings and an execution attempt. I was trained to be an army sniper at the age of 14 and was a refugee for four years. I survived seven times.

I was displaced, exiled, and lived through the most hostile environments. I stood in line for food for many years.

I have lived through the horror of wars, genocide and gun violence but the impact of relational and human-to-human trauma and moral injury was more impactful.

I am coming from a lineage of oppressed, and Holocaust survivors ( Slavic Serb).

Do you think I have the capacity to be able to understand your pain, trauma, oppression? Do you think I believe in your deep healing, transformation, and growth? Absolutely, by all means, yes.

As someone who has lived a trauma-filled life, I want you to know that you are not alone, that you matter, no matter what you may be going through. Please remember, no trauma is ever small. No pain is ever small. No isolation is ever small. I will repeat this: No trauma is ever small, no pain is ever small, no isolation is ever small.  

Today, I work as a Somatic Experiencing therapist helping clients gain back their robbed dignity, innate power, exuberance and worth back in SELF.
