What People Are Saying

"I just completed the 8-Week Coaching Intensive and loved it. CPTSD is a part of my life I'm unable to talk about with friends, and years of therapy hasn't got me far in my healing. Being part of a small group of like-minded souls who are struggling with the same issues was an honor. I highly recommend."

— Diane W.

"One of the best decisions I made was to join the Coaching Intensive. To say I have had a wonderful experience would be an understatement. I am so glad I made the decision to join. I now have the tools to deal with my dysregulation, and self-defeating behaviors moving forward.”

— Margaret M.

"The Coaching Intensive has done more to heal my symptoms of childhood PTSD than years of various other treatments. Over 8 weeks I learned how to calm my triggers. I now feel calmer, happier and more capable to advance my life in the direction of my dreams. I highly recommend!"
