What Students Are Saying

"I'm a trauma therapist myself. Your videos are amazing and the best help for people with CPTSD. I haven't found any material like yours. You are precise (and also correct!), efficient, and yet loving in your explanations. Thank you so much!"


"It's difficult for me to find words to describe how much calmer and 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."

"I hope you know what a gift you are to those with CPTSD. No more meds or useless therapy, just freedom. I lived most of my life afraid of myself. Now, I love myself. God and Anna led me there. May God continue to bless the work you do."


"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."


"I'm so very grateful to have found your work. I'm also very grateful that the membership is so affordable. I was very overwhelmed by not finding a therapist who supported me in a way that pushed my healing forward. I feel so relieved to have access to tools."

For 28 years, I have taught my techniques and principles to more than 500,000 people around the world. I live with my husband and two sons in the San Francisco Bay Area.


More Student Reviews

"Anna, you're so amazing! You have no idea the bright light you are for so many of us. You have given us reason, tools, understanding, grace. I love how you give tough love in a very graceful way. Thank you for being brave enough to share your knowledge."

"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."

Frequently Asked Questions


Is This Program Right for Me?

If you’ve suffered from common adult effects of childhood trauma, you’ve probably sought help from professionals like therapists, doctors, and psychiatrists. Maybe you followed their advice -- booked appointments, told your story of what happened, read books, joined groups, swallowed medication, and waited… waited to start feeling better. And maybe it worked. But if you still feel like there’s more for you -- more healing, more connection, more happiness, more success -- then perhaps it’s time you take a bold step up and take charge of your own healing. That’s why Anna created the Crappy Childhood Fairy Member program. It offers immersion in her unique healing techniques and principles. With access to all of Anna's courses, you can learn and practice them quickly or slowly, in whatever order is best for you.


Can I Cancel Any Time I Want?

More Happy Students

"Anna's personal experience and healing approach to CPTSD, along with her easy manners, YouTube videos, courses, Coaching Calls, Daily Practice Zoom meetings, and the Facebook group are all structured to help us on our CPTSD healing journey."

"Your work is SO important. I wish it were available when I was in my 20s because I had no idea what was "wrong" with me despite going to therapy. You explain CPTSD simply, yet your depth of knowledge seems infinite. Anna truly is a unique voice."

"Anna, you've been incredibly helpful to me in my life, almost to the point of being life-saving. You're on the right track and helping many people. Your sincerity, experience with these issues, and love for others are what makes your work so potent."
