“You immediately cut through the bullshit in my brain, help me logically break down situations and respond in the best way, and develop my boundaries and communication skills to achieve mutually beneficial results in my interactions.”
“You bring a healthy marriage of spirituality and tested/proven scientific methodology and serve it up on a ‘no shoes required, come as you are’ platter. You encourage me to take action and control of my romantic life through supporting my decisions moving me towards my goal.”
“You helped me see the best in myself the parts of me I couldn’t see for myself. You brought out of me the person I didn’t believe was there.”

Trauma-Informed, Depth Oriented Coaching
The underlying question in trauma-informed care is not “What’s wrong with you?” (which is the medical, pathology-focused model) but “What happened to you?” (SAMSHA)
In trauma-informed, depth-oriented coaching, we recognize that symptoms are actually adaptations to traumatic events and healing happens in safe relationships where corrective co-regulation can occur. A depth approach means we value your unconscious as a valid source of healing information.
A part of me is…
When we are upset it is normal to feel like: “I am so mad!” The reality, however, it that only a PART of you is angry. There are other parts of you that are - Hurt - Sad - Curious - Confused - Open...
