  • "Finding Purpose In Your Trauma'' course

    “Finding Purpose In Your Trauma” course is NOW OPEN. This is a small VIRTUAL group course led & designed by Desi who is a counselor & trauma coach. It was designed as a mix of coaching & therapy. The purpose is to help you get to the root of the emotional wounds that are holding you back from your healing, while helping you discover your purpose from your pain & how to turn your mess into a message. Desi educates you on the neurology of trauma & how trauma not only affects our mental health, but also the physical effects it has on our bodies. She teaches grounding techniques & how to rewire your trauma brain which affects our emotional, somatic and mental system. She helps you change your narrative and rewrite your story. We only take 10-15 people per course. Anyone is welcome that needs healing. If you have any emotional wounds holding you back from healing, then I know you could really benefit from this! We know how hard it is to invest in yourself, we’ve been there too. Desi was scared the first time she hired a coach & took courses, but it was the best decision she ever made for herself!
