After experiencing trauma—which most humans experience—evidence-based and trauma-informed mindfulness techniques provided me with helpful focus and healing. I feel so grateful that I was later trained in these techniques, as well as trained to be a Certified Trauma Specialist, Certified Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Advocacy-Based Crisis Counselor, Certified Peer Counselor, Mind-Body Medicine Professional, and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Teacher.
We all face challenges, no matter where we're located. But I'm always in awe that when I take mindful action in a challenging moment, the calm it brings allows me to handle the next moment with more ease. Of course, I'm far from perfect and you'll see my struggles. It's my reminder to practice.
SPECIAL NOTE: At the very bottom of this page, I've listed complementary resources, which can make all the difference in the world when trying to understand some of the trauma that can affect us all. If you want to discuss any of these resources, please know you can contact me with any questions, at any time. XO
