Nirvana Now!

Renewal & Peace for Survivors of Sexual Assault

Cece Norwood, Founder

Welcome, I’m CeCe

I’m so glad you’re here. For survivors of incest, child sexual abuse, and rape the question I hear the most is, “Will this pain ever go away?” Beneath this is the deeper question, “Will I ever be happy again?” Trust me, I know it firsthand as a black woman who was sexually abused.

A response of “Yes” eluded me for years, even after multiple therapists, support groups, books, magazines, journals, conversations and tears shed with other survivors. But I want to offer you hope. Hope that you too can have a happy life. All you have to do is Claim it!

Over 30 years ago I started Nirvana Now! to serve African American survivors and their communities. But today I work with women, children, and men of all backgrounds.
