How long have you been working in the trauma space?
I first started working in the trauma space in 2005. I have been educating & training on the effects of trauma since 2011. And I’ve been working as a Trauma Informed Coach since 2016.
In addition, my personal recovery from Complex Trauma over the past 20 years guides much of my work.
What do you teach people in your coaching programs?
The Body-First Healing Program supports survivors in coming to terms with their past, through cultivating a healing present. We focus on their current life and how trauma is affecting them today. Our aim is to utilize coaching strategies to help clients build up their strengths, healthy beliefs, and positive coping strategies rather than just extinguishing “negative” behaviors and beliefs. The essence of our teaching is to allow survivors to compassionately understand themselves, to see themselves as human, and to recognize that the way they survived past the pain makes complete sense.
The lens through which we accomplish this work includes: nervous system regulation, brain-body connection, somatic experiencing, attachments, and more. Feel free to visit the Foundations & Philosophies page here to learn more.
Do you offer free resources?
I find great joy in spreading awareness, education, and tangible tools for those impacted by trauma (both survivors and allys). The recovery space is an exciting field that’s rapidly changing and developing with the newest advancements in trauma research. As a survivor, I felt set FREE after becoming educated on what was happening inside of me , as a result of my trauma. Since acquiring this awareness, I’ve made it my mission to spread the knowledge far and wide. For that reason, I’m committed to creating and sharing all that I know, with anyone who’s ready to listen! Here are some Free Resources to get you started:
As a professional speaker on the topics of trauma recovery & sexual assault awareness, I’ve had the humbling privilege to cultivate 400+ programs spanning 10 years and 3 continents. The audiences that benefit most from these programs often include: college students, employers, violent crimes units & first responders, inmates, and military members.
