About Candle In A Dark Room

Welcome to the Candle In A Dark Room Podcast with your host Desi Garcia who is the President and founder of The Candle In A Dark Room Foundation. CIADR is a nonprofit organization that helps survivors of physical and sexual trauma, as well as mental health that stems from trauma. We help guide survivors through the healing journey so they never feel alone. We show survivors that regardless of your situation and the trauma you have experienced, you can still find the light, and be a light.

I started this podcast to tell you the story of my life, how I survived physical and sexual trauma, & the mental health issues I've dealt with because of my trauma including PTSD and D.I.D (Disassociation Identity Disorder). But in spite of all of that, I talk about how I live in recovery today. I will also have discussions with experts in the trauma field as well as other survivors who will share their experiences with trauma & give advice on how they found light in their darkness. Survivors of all sexual violence, mental health, eating disorders, sex trafficking, & anything else trauma related. This is to help survivors take their power back by using their voices.
We talk about all of the "off limit" subjects that society has taught us to feel shame about & ignore. We help survivors take their power back & find light.

***You can find our podcast on all podcast resources.
