Trauma happens when something happens to you that is out of your control and impacts your daily functioning in a negative way. This can be from childhood abuse, domestic violence, or a car accident. Either way, it can really impact who you believe yourself to be. But with the right intervention, you can learn how to keep it from controlling your life.
It's the most important job there is. You don't want to mess this one up--and if you have been messing it up--it's time to get on the right path. Your kids don't deserve the conflict, and they are not tools to be used in your anger. Let's figure it out and do what is best for them. You'll b glad you did in the long run, no matter how much you can't stand your ex.
You are a whole person. There is no treating on single aspect. When you work with me we will look at the whole of you, your experiences, and how that all comes together to make you who you are. It also helps you to understand why you do things the way you do, and be able to identify and make the changes you seek to make to have a more fulfilling life.
It happened to you. But you are left to manage the triggers, survive in stressful situations, and pick up the shattered pieces of who you once were or who you feel you were destined to be. But, the truth is with guided work, proper support, and the tools to grow, you can develop the skills you need to thrive. Your experiences will always have a place inside of you, and will always play a part in who you are; but they don't have to define you, and they don't have to dictate your life.
Are you feeling stuck? Do you have big goals for yourself, or feel like you just keep repeating the same things over and over again and not get anywhere? Coaching can help. In particular I focus my coaching on adults with ADHD. I have a deep understanding of ADHD and how it impacts many areas of life. It's not as simple as setting a timer--reach out, I can help.
