Have you ever felt unsafe physically? Emotionally? Relationally? Spiritually?
Did you know your brain processes feeling unsafe as trauma?
After trauma, are you struggling to find hope and peace?
Do you find yourself asking the question will I ever feel normal again?
I invite you to join me in finding baby steps of hope using this trauma guide.
I am a trauma-trained counselor, have traveled the world to offer trauma debriefing after natural disasters and war, and have experienced trauma myself.
I have stood with people as they lost everything after the earth shook from an earthquake, reducing their lives to rubble.
You may not have been in an actual earthquake, but your circumstances caused your heart and life to shake.
I want to stand beside you and give you hope to unbury the rubble and find a new normal to rebuild.
After trauma hope.
Included in this trauma guide is:
- 4 video sessions taught by me. (They are short because I recognize if you have experienced trauma you are probably tired). We will dive into what trauma is, what it does, and tips and tricks to begin baby steps to healing your brain and body.
- audio podcast interviews with practicing therapists providing steps to healing
- a beautiful PDF guide to complete the course
