I never imagined that the physical, emotional and sexual abuse I experienced as a child would affect me so severely as an adult...

The nightmares, constant hyper-vigilance, body flashbacks, fear of speaking up, and so much more kept me in a constant state of fear and panic for years.

Before I came to study and understand trauma, and all the varying aspects of it that I'll share with you on this site, I had no idea how much it was limiting my life in every way. From my relationships with family, friends and loved ones, to parenting skills, weight gain and loss, confidence, sense of safety, high levels of stress and anxiety, physical illness and so much more. No area of my life was unaffected by my trauma.

If you've gone through any type of trauma in your life, as a child or adult, one time or many times, whether it be verbal, physical or sexual, you too know how deeply it can effect you emotionally and how it can limit your life.

But I'm here to tell you that it can be better! Yes, you may have experienced hopelessness and depression and often felt like giving up. But, there is another way. Your life is not over yet! You can significantly improve the quality of your life and release the trauma that is stuck both in your body and your mind. You deserve to feel safer and more whole, have more choice, and bring freedom back to your life.

I'm deeply passionate about coaching and helping people who have experienced trauma to reclaim their life, and I want to help you to do the same!

"Karen is brilliant. I honestly don't think there is anything that she could not help someone work through, and improve. I am so grateful for her gentle guidance and profound insights, all working organically in and alongside the tapping. I found so much value in working with her, bringing me a deeper sense of peace and well-being on the whole, and beginning to change other areas of my life as well. I would (and plan to) work with her again in a heartbeat--especially on other seemingly "impossible" issues."

Let me ask you...

Do you ever get angry about what you experienced? Wondering what your life would be like today if it hadn't happened?

Do you ever feel overwhelmed by the grief and loss of it all? By what this trauma has cost you and taken from you? Finding yourself cycling from anger, frustration and overwhelm to sadness, hopelessness, grief and depression… and back again?

Do you ever feel like you’re living someone else’s life? Having no idea how you got here but feeling helpless and powerless to change things? Feeling trapped in a life that no longer serves you, repeating old patterns that have kept you stuck and miserable for way too long?

Imagine, just for a moment, what your life would be like if you could calm the ragged aftershocks of trauma... If you no longer had to feel so acutely the enormity and pain of your trauma - the sense of hopelessness and futility about what happened...

Imagine if you could lessen and release the emotional, psychological and physical impacts of what you've experienced, and have more control over how they affect your life today...

Remember, healing does not mean that the traumatic events never existed. It does not mean you forget about it and it does not make what happened ok. But, it does mean that the trauma no longer controls every aspect of your life! You get to choose, from an empowered place of healing, the kind of life you want to live!

And so, I want to invite you on a journey of healing. A journey of transformation where you will reclaim your sense of self and bring safety, freedom, and choice back into your life.
