Cara brings truly potent insights into the ways our fears and resentments can cloud our thinking w/ CPTSD and create harm for ourselves. I've been reading my DP to her and she is also supporting the coaching intensive I'm in. The space she holds feels nurturing and I feel her deep acceptance for whatever I'm experiencing. She walked this road herself learning to manage CPTSD successfully and demonstrates the power of the tools Anna shares. Cara's delightful sense of humor also helps lighten the heaviness and lifts any shame that might accompany explorations of fears and resentments. Working with Cara has been a HUGE help on my journey and I'm so grateful for her support." Lilah, CA, USA
I have been working with Cara for a year, and am so grateful to have her support and compassionate understanding. She has helped me to understand CPTSD and how best to use Anna’s tools to find inner calm and peace. Cara is open and understanding. I so appreciate her support and care. I love her dearly.

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 honour. The intimate group allowed a lot of sharing, listening, laughing and crying in a very safe space. The individual and group coaching was invaluable to me. I feel like I can move forward a bit more safely and happily armed with more conviction to do the work required in my healing. I highly recommend this course. Diane W., Toronto, CAN
This course 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, reduce self-defeating behaviors and ultimately focus on my strengths and gifts. I feel calmer, happier and more capable to advance my life in the direction of my dreams. I highly recommend this course! Caroline S., North Carolina, USA
One of the best decisionsI made (on a whim!) was to join the Coaching Intensive. I had only seen a few of Anna's videos but knew right away that it hit a chord. To say I have had a wonderful experience would be an understatement. I am so glad I made the decision to join. My awareness of my own CPSTD symptoms has grown and I feel that I will walk away with tools that will really help me deal with my dysregulation, isolation tendencies, and self-defeating behaviors moving forward.” Margaret M., NJ, USA
Cara is a down to earth coach that has been able to help me pivot my approach and thinking around healing, so that I can truly reap the benefits of Anna’s program and philosophy. She is a good listener, points out areas where I may not be seeing things fully, and shares her experiences and feedback in a way that is relevant and meaningful to what we are discussing. She has a lot of experience with this practice and obviously with coaching people. If you're thinking of taking a coaching course with Cara, do it! I am sure you will gain a lot from it.
