“We hosted Nubia as a panelist on an event in support of Trinitas Health Foundation’s fundraising campaign for the renovation of their Behavioral Health Center. Nubia was selected, as she is a perfect example of thriving through trauma while balancing self-care and coping skills for everyday challenges. Her poise, professionalism and impactful contribution made her not only a pleasure to work with, but her input was invaluable in terms of her easy delivery and messaging. She is a great addition to any group of speakers as her style blends easily with others, however she also makes an engaging solo speaker, as she has fun but captivating message that is essential to everyone trying to live a fulfilled and balanced life.”

Partners of survivors have needs too, but before those needs can be met, they need to understand how to support their female survivor partner and it isn’t always an easy path to navigate.  Survivors carry eminent guilt for not being the best partner; frustration that they might be triggered while being intimate, and worried about being left because of panic attacks.  A survivor’s protective mechanism is to not need anyone, yet their biggest fear is abandonment. This talk will highlight what is going on in a survivor’s mind, how they cope withing romantic relationships, as well as, practical advice on how to understand your partner while taking care of yourself.

  • How to get into the psyche of your partner’s journey to heal so that you can be part of their support system.
