About Me


My name is Kristi. I live in the Pacific Northwest with my husband and children.

Because The Truth Is is a personal journal of my life with depression, Bipolar Disorder, anxiety, PTSD stemming from childhood sexual abuse and my marriage to a combat vet living with PTSD. After years of therapy and medication, I decided to create a space where I can work through and be brutally honest about the struggles of living with sexual trauma and mental illness.

Because the truth is, I’m tired of pretending that everything is okay.
