“I knew I wanted more tools to help my clients work through their trauma as it comes up in coaching."
I personally think anyone in the health and healing world should be trauma certified! The course brings together the psychological education background and experience I already had and blends it with coaching skills and knowledge that are newer to me. Such a win win for me!
I feel so much safer and more secure in sessions when stuff comes up with my clients. Before, I would sometimes pause and wonder if I dare say anything that might possibly sound clinical when I'm not really trying to be someone's therapist. Now I feel at ease, and I have tools to help others! Being able to first learn and process with myself and my own trauma has been a valuable learning experience for me!
(Should you join the program?) DO IT!!! You have nothing to lose and everything to gain! Everyone needs this training, not even coaches. Your work with yourself and your clients will go deeper and be more meaningful.

Coach for Midlife Women
“I started coaching with Lindsay because her calm, loving manner drew me in. I knew she could handle with love and grace anything I told her."
I came to her having done a lot of personal growth, but wanting to go deeper on some lingering painful thought patterns that I couldn't quite shake. I am so glad I made that choice, and have re-signed with her because I love the work we do together. She is very wise, but never preachy about her wisdom. She puts the client in the seat as the expert in their own lives, and she facilitates (with great skill) the client's ability to find their own answers. Although I know Lindsay can coach on anything, I would recommend her to anyone who wants a safe place to heal from relationship pain, especially if that relationship is the one with yourself. I am so grateful to myself for taking that leap and working with Lindsay. She has helped me unlock so deep hurts, and let them go. I love her!

One-on-One Client Testimonials
“I am working through betrayal and learning to navigate decisions as I separate from my husband."
This work is affecting everything. I am standing up for myself in a loving way in conversations with my husband and family. It is making me more confident in my work as a coach. It is helping me to heal a wound and step into a new lifestyle in powerful confidence. And I am learning to grieve and be with myself in a powerful way.
“Coaching with you was truly a gift.
You came into my life at the precise moment I needed you!"
When I found you, I was struggling with finding connection in my marriage. I definitely felt the need to have my husband change in order to feel connected. Through coaching, I was able to learn that just that thought was making me show up in my marriage in a way that I had not intended. I felt like you were really compassionate and loving. I never felt like you were being judgmental or critical. I always felt like it was a safe space to just pour my heart out. I would end the sessions with optimism that I could look at things in a different way. Not to say that I never actually tried changing things, but the energy that I used to make change was very different.”
