Here’s What People Say…

I really enjoyed the Coaching program as it opened my eyes to some blind spots that I had. It was very encouraging to be part of a group that gave me the feeling of being understood and appreciated by the other members. Coaching really helped me to make major progress in my healing journey.
– Mariposa
I completed Coaching and loved it. CPTSD is the part of my life I'm unable to talk about with friends, and years of therapy haven't got me far in my healing. Being part of a small group of like-minded souls who are struggling with the same issues, and being coached by Anna, was an honor. The intimate group allowed a lot of sharing, listening, laughing, and crying in a very safe space. I can move forward safely and happily, armed with conviction to do the work required in my healing.
– Diane
I signed up for Coaching as soon I came across it. In eight weeks, I made more progress than I had in the preceding 25 years. Coaching was a safe and intimate group. I gained practical understanding of different facets of CPTSD and the awareness and tools to overcome it. My life feels forever changed, and I'm finally tasting freedom.

Coaching with Anna

Anna gets it! She gets it all — the weird coping mechanisms I developed because of CPTSD, the secret fears that weighed me down and kept me from living my life. She helped me realize above all that I was a normal person who was just hurt very badly. I am feeling and living a much better life and for that I am forever grateful.

Anna came into my life at the point when I felt like I’d run out of options. She walked me through the ways childhood PTSD affects you and her strategies for walking away from those affects. It’s not an exaggeration to say that was when everything changed. I’ve kept my daily diary, began practicing meditation again and now look for joy in my life. My relationship is stronger than ever, I’m hitting long held work goals and, best of all, I’m no longer plagued by traumatic memories or the resulting negative emotional triggers.
