Three Things About Your Professional Career...
1) I believe your career doesn't have to feel triggering, overwhelming, and scary.
2) I believe your career can support and empower your continued recovery from trauma.
3) I've seen and believe that commerce (not capitalism) is a tool with the power to dismantle systems of oppression & cycles of trauma.
On this page are some of the self-hosted and outside resources that I frequently reference while working with entrepreneurs like you.
Everything on this page is freely available because:
- Trauma suuuuuuucks, doesn't it?! Let's make it suck less.
- You're my kinda people! (I'm a trauma survivor too.)
- I am always down to vent about "I can't believe how sneaky my trauma is!" because, I'm right there with you.
I don't do "sales calls," but if you ever want to schedule a coffee/tea chat, I'd absolutely be down for something like that, click here for the scheduling link.

Trauma comes with mental, physical, emotional, and financial effects that are often long-term or even permanent. It can take an extremely long time for a survivor to acknowledge that they experienced trauma and even longer to understand or repair the damage.
In the meantime, how is a survivor supposed to keep the lights on and pay the bills?!
Trauma can *increase* your risk for:
- "kindling" (exponentially escalating mental health crises with progressively less extreme triggers and shorter periods of time between crises... uh, yikes.)
- hypertension/heart disease, diabetes, obesity
- stroke, cancer, autoimmune diseases
- addiction, self-medicating, self-numbing
- chronic anxiety & panic attacks
- sleep disorders, night terrors, insomnia, hyper-arousal
- easily agitated or angered, extreme startle reflex
- disassociation, over intellectualizing, monotonous voice, spacey
- cognitive disfunction, poor memory, trouble speaking
- excessive or inappropriate guilt
- intrusive thoughts or memories, flashbacks
- obsessive and/or compulsive tendencies
- self-injury, self-harm, high-risk behaviors
Your career problems might be trauma symptoms:
Note: Everyone's trauma is unique. Everyone's career is unique. Your symptoms will show up differently. Here are some I see frequently with new clients:
- impressive feats of procrastination
- frequently switching jobs or roles
- self-sabotaging behavior
- feast & famine bank accounts
- constant hustle at the speed of survival
- bashful self-promotion
- coworkers or bosses that "walk all over" your boundaries
- frozen with indecision (aka analysis paralysis)
- panic attacks at very inopportune times
- and so much more
for career professionals, workplace well-being, and burnout recovery
