Candle In A Dark Room Trauma Recovery & Wellness is a global community & business welcoming people from every circumstance, background, gender & culture who seek a deeper understanding, and healing from past traumas. We believe survivors should use their voice so these topics will no longer be ignored. We help empower survivors to start their healing journey, and regain their power in finding purpose in their trauma. Candle In A Dark Room was started by a survivor who lived, experienced and survived physical & sexual abuse. The foundation continues to be survivor led. Everything we do is driven by the common goal for long term healing.

Our agenda is to shed light on taboo topics such as physical & sexual trauma, as well as mental health, all while giving & using our voice for the voiceless.

We also offer the tools to help with the healing process with our healing retreats, groups,  1:1 trauma recovery coaching, classes. and more. Let us guide you through your healing so you can live the life you deserve.
