TBI Therapist

Episode 16! I’m very excited to introduce you to Cristabelle Braden, a fantastic advocate and champion of hope after brain injury. She was completely vulnerable regarding her journey through difficult relationships, symptoms of brain injury, and mental health struggles. She even sang for us with her inspiring new song. It’s a must listen!

Meet Cristabelle:

Cristabelle Braden is an award-winning singer/songwriter, speaker, writer, podcast host, and advocate for brain injury. After suffering a traumatic brain injury, she began to write music during the recovery process. Whether speaking or singing, she brings her powerful testimony and a message of freedom, healing, and love wherever she goes. She is devoted to bringing support and education through weekly episodes of “Hope Survives® | Brain Injury Podcast” and her online support community Hope After Head Injury.

Things we discussed:


Takeaway #1

Cristabelle’s song says “with a little hope”, she talks about finding the small spark or desire for change. Find something that lifts your spirit when you have a hard time. Definitely don’t sit in the dark. Put on something that will encourage you! For Cristabelle it’s her faith, friends, and reaching out to others.

Takeaway #2

Recovery takes time, Cristabelle started her page 10 years ago. We can’t compare our start to someone else’s ending or success.

Takeaway #3

You are not alone! She sends her virtual hug. 🙂
