Over 50% of people experience trauma at least once in their life.
Trauma can include a wide range of experiences including: physical or emotional abuse, bullying, injury, sexual violence, chronic neglect, and life-threatening events.
Trauma is often normalized particularly in the experiences of abuse, neglect, and bullying when we are children. Many of us have grown up with trauma and have internalized it, resulting in anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, difficulty regulating emotions, and self-sabotaging behaviors.
Trauma can be very challenging because you store it in your mind and body and often develop very strong beliefs, unhealthy patterns, and coping mechanisms that reinforce the trauma. Common examples include: a deeply held belief that you are "bad", not good enough, or undeserving, confusing love with abuse which can lead to consistently getting into abusive relationships, paranoia, and insecurity in your relationships.

She supports her clients with the same Brain-Science and Emotional Intelligence based tools, techniques, and solutions she used to heal her own trauma.
