Participant Testimonials

“Not only was the workshop informative, it provided me with a sense of hope and reminded me to fill my cup so I can hold the cup of my client until they can hold it themselves.”

“Received lots of great resources. It was a good reminder of what trauma work is and how to identify trauma. Lots of great tools/analogies to use with clients and a reminder of what I am doing well already.”
