Journey to a Trauma Informed Life

About Us

We have 13 trained therapists in Erie, PA prepared to help you along your unique Journey today.​

Journey to a Trauma Informed Life, LLC began in July, 2019 by three dedicated therapists in Erie who saw a need for trauma-informed, culturally & LGBTQ+ sensitive mental health services in our community. Since then, we have grown to a staff of 12 wonderfully diverse therapists, each ready to help you on the next stage of your own journey to healing.
