After 10,000+ hours of client work and diving into the research, here are the 5 Stages of Healing Emotional Trauma:
1. Create a safe connection
2. Validate the emotional experience.
3. Empathize with those emotions.
4. Repaid the wound & set limits.
5. Transcend the trauma.
Safe relationships are containers for healing trauma.
Studies show that what is most traumatizing is not just what happened, but how we hold what happened afterwards.
In trauma-informed care we know that one of the automatic defenses to trauma is an isolation and immobilization response from the nervous system.
This is why so many survivors don’t come forward, or come forward decades later.
The body goes into a freeze and isolation response and automatically defends itself through remaining withdrawn and immobilized.
This is where trauma really takes it’s hold on survivors, when it is not shared and held alone for years or decades.
Safety and connection in relationship with others is how we heal.
It takes courage to bring your trauma into the light, on your timeframe, as you choose with whom you choose (a partner, therapist, friend, etc).
You are not alone.

3. FINALLY put aside the time your business or practice deserves
Join me at my P3 Immersion Experience in April and let’s spend a week getting your business up, running, unstuck and scaling. In this retreat setting, we’ll focus 100% on finally eliminating distractions and getting things done — get your IG page up and running, content created for your website, and more. You’ll get more done in one week than you have up until now. Just send me an email with “P3” in the subject line.
4. Work one-on-one with me on your trauma and attachment patterns:
If you are a business owner, entrepreneur, own a private practice or are a high functioning human and you’ve been wanting to coaching one-on-one with me, keep reading. I’ve spent the last decade and over 10,000 client hours working directly with people on their emotional trauma. This evidence based approach to coaching eventually led me to create Functional Life Coaching™, which is the only evidence based, trauma-informed coaching modality in the world. And along with FLC I’ve created the process of Trauma Hacking™ for high performers to get to the root of their emotional trauma and work quickly to turn their nervous system into their ally and help them achieve their goals automatically and with less stress.
