Here's what other Coaching Intensive participants say about the program

"Cara has a profoundly healing presence. She is kind, humble, and wise. I can not recommend her work highly enough. As a psychotherapist, I personally find I have gained much from her workshop. The interaction with the other participants was also healing and great."
P.H., M.A., L.C.P.C.


"Anna's course was incredibly powerful. I felt lost -- and like I had no control over my emotions. Walking through the program week by week was exactly what I needed. The daily practice has given me the clarity and healing I have desperately needed. The people in the group are so supportive, and there's so much learning that happens by watching others get coached. Anna and Cara work in sync to make sure you get exactly what you need. I'm so glad I took the dive and invested in myself. The transformation was profound. "

"I feel like I finally got the memo! I discovered the Crappy Childhood Fairy on YouTube and decided to join the coaching intensive because Anna was providing concrete, practical suggestions to address CPTSD. Having been to years of therapy and spent years exploring the world of self-help, there were still things that were a mystery to me. The coaching intensive allowed me to become aware of things that used to be huge blind spots. Being part of a community of others on a journey to heal from CPTSD has been incredibly valuable. I've gained new awareness that has allowed me to have more peace and confidence in my life and there is more and deeper connection in my relationships. Those close to me have noticed it too. I'm thankful to Anna and Cara and thankful to be on this healing journey and part of the Crappy Childhood Fairy community."


"I really enjoyed the coaching intensive as it opened my eyes to some blind spots that I had. I also found it very encouraging to be part of a group that gave me the feeling of being understood and appreciated by the other members. I think this course really helped me to make some major progress in my healing journey."


"Cara has compassion based on her own background and healing, as well as a very solid understanding of the Daily Practice and how to use it. She encourages us to really learn and use the practices to find our own best personal path, which is so empowering. She is a fantastic part of the Crappy Childhood Fairy team, and I really appreciate getting to work with her."
