There is an incredible possibility available. To go beyond the hurt…

The wounds… The pain of the past…


To create something greater, and find the strength and power within, to release our stories and limitations and to truly see the gift in every choice, experience and trauma.

Not as a way of minimizing, excusing or judging it...



In this 4-part workshop for trauma survivors

I am inviting you to this place of Post-Traumatic Growth. To see the beauty and the gift of it and bring all the fragmented parts into wholeness.

Together we can discover the space of thrival – of moving beyond the past and out of survival into a greater future.
