Early abuse and neglect can injure your ability to connect with others.

See if you've experienced these common signs:

  • When you are in a group, do you struggle to feel that you are part of it?
  • Do you find yourself avoiding social engagements, simply because it’s triggering to be around other people?
  • Is it a pattern for you to sometimes say hurtful things to people, and regret it later?
  • Do you stay in unhappy relationships just so you won’t have to be alone?
  • Are your relationships more superficial than you’d like?
  • When you sense that people have pulled away from you, are you often unsure why?
  • Do you often feel empty and lonely -- even at a party, even in a romantic relationship?
  • When you make a new friend, do you live in fear, or “wait for the other shoe to drop,” expecting them to abandon you?
  • Do you feel sometimes like other people got an “instruction manual” for how to live life, but you’ve had to figure things out for yourself?
  • Are you haunted by a fear that will end up alone in the world?

If you struggle with connection and these symptoms are familiar to you, I invite you to register for this powerful course.

What People Are Saying About Anna's Courses

"It's difficult for me to find words to describe how much calmer and more serene I feel going into the rest of my day, having done only my first exercise.  Astonishing, really.  I don't think I've ever felt this calm before in my life. Wow.  I'm weeping with joy."

Dave C.

"The information you share quite literally saved me and changed my life. It reduced the feelings of shame, blame, and self-loathing I have acquired and created through my 58 years. I thank you. Lots of love to you and those who support you."


"I was diagnosed with PTSD ten years ago. I’m 23 next month. I feel so relieved to know I’m not alone. I’ve let my trauma swallow me completely, isolating myself because I’m scared of any social interaction. Thank you for helping us heal."

Zoila C.

More praise for the Crappy Childhood Fairy

"You have no idea how much you inspire me to heal. I have felt so alone and so hopeless for so long. I can’t wait to be absent from this fear, and I’m just so happy to be learning that it’s possible. You and the others educating people are the true heroes."


"Anna is the real deal. She's easy to relate to and exudes warmth and wisdom. After completing the Bootcamp course and using the tools provided, I've experienced less emotional dysregulation. It's down to almost none. No joke."

"I have been doing your techniques for a month, and they have made a difference. I don't feel as plagued by past thoughts. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I appreciate your hard work. Even my husband is joining in on the program."

Childhood PTSD is an injury, not an identity.

You can heal from the effects of past trauma on your present-day relationships.
