Our Team


I aspire to give people tools to help build their own foundation of healing from trauma and PTSD.”

Christina Major, Founder and Board Member

The seed of Cooper’s Crossroad was planted the day I walked out of a 30-day inpatient program at Sierra Tucson for PTSD and trauma in August 2016. Having hit a hard low in my life, I was helped there with the loving guidance of friends and family. At the time I was carrying baggage left from early childhood trauma that came with a laundry list of diagnoses.

I consider my time at Sierra Tucson “college on steroids.” I am more proud of my “degree” from there than any other degree achieved to date. At Sierra Tucson I started my own pathway to healing which continues to this day. My education regarding the negative impact of trauma and adverse childhood experiences over a lifetime was also kick-started there. This knowledge allowed me to see my life and others who have experienced trauma through a different lens, and it left me with a burning desire to raise awareness about the effects of childhood adversity and trauma. This happened in December 2017 when Cooper’s Crossroad officially became a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
