“Thanks for your … show each week. I am finding a take away each time. Your guests have interesting and diverse perspectives. I am new to your site but have found a lot of great information in your archives… Have a wonderful holiday. You have been the best present I could have wished for.” – H.G.

In an effort to bring you even more ideas for how to reduce and manage PTSD stress, depression, mood swings, nightmares, insomnia, sadness, anger, grief and pain, plus redefine who you are and reclaim how you live every week for four years Michele Rosenthal invited professionals and/or survivors to discuss a topic specific to your life after trauma. On this program Michele and her guests covered a wide spectrum of topics designed to help you turn yourself around and get headed for healing in the right direction.

With guests from backgrounds that include self-help, mental health, trauma, motivation and inspiration, HealMyPTSD.com founder, Michele Rosenthal, interviewed experts and everyday people about what it takes to heal trauma and move forward with your life. Guests include civilian and military survivors and professionals sharing their unique perspectives on how to quell the chaos and take positive steps toward change, plus leaders in the fields of self-help, inspiration, motivation, science, trauma, recovery, and personal development.
