Whether it is a faltering step or a giant leap, action builds confidence and confidence fuels healing and greater action. Your truth- your story- is important to your resilience. Speaking your truth, even to one safe person, makes it real and opens the door to growth and recovery.

Finding Our Voices survivors and allies are here to provide long term support. We urge you to seek immediate assistance through law enforcement and medical facilities.

Tips For Victims & Their Loved Ones

1. Be patient with yourself-recovery takes time, effort, and lots of emotional energy.

2. Consider joining a support group. Being with other survivors can help rebuild trust.

3. Learn about the signs and symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Being aware of them can help you with getting through the tough times and bad days.

4. Meditation and relaxation exercises can help you cope with your negative feelings such as anger, stress, and anxiety associated with abuse.

Joyce Aubrey


“Midlife flashbacks of childhood sexual abuse toppled my seemingly perfect world. I spiraled from my role as wife of 30 years and mother of two sons, aged 17 and 25, to a dark place that left me confused, frightened and angry.” 

Joyce Aubrey: Author, Advocate, Survivor

Recalling more than a decade of incest and family trafficking cost me my ambition, my spirituality and nearly my sanity. Within three years, I was divorced, unemployed, disowned by my brothers and battling their attempts to discredit me.

My story doesn’t end there. A scholar, I researched and sought healing. Traditional psychotherapy and prescription medicine interwoven with Rolfing, massage and acupuncture all played a role in my journey. With time, I discovered process painting. The creative experience, not the final product, was the goal.

My early love of nature, renewed by the natural beauty of Colorado, inspired the artist within me; I chose the colors, the brushes and the strokes. Empowered, my independence was restored.

Emerging from the aftershocks a leader, I founded the organization Finding Our Voices to advocate for and support survivors of sexual violence. We provide workshops, conduct outreach, and provide art-based healing. We actively advocate campaigns to raise public awareness and extend the network of resources for survivors.
