As a Certified Trauma Recovery Coach, it is my hope that you leave a space with me feeling better than you did when you entered. Isn’t that what most of us want – to feel better? As Dr. Stephen Porges author of The Polyvagal Theory states, “Safety is the treatment.”
I spent most of my life not knowing that the “it’s just life” experiences I went through were actually traumatic to my nervous system. I did not know what I did not know. I did not know there were “others” like me who felt “that’s just the way things are.” I spent a lot of years trying to “find my people” so that I would have a safe space where I didn’t feel judged or judge myself. Over the years and through my own trauma recovery, I not only found my people, I found love for all parts of myself and love for people. In my peer-to peer coaching relationships, I use neuroception to provide attunement and education around trauma. I create safe spaces to help my clients do the same so that their lives and relationships are full of richness and joy. Helping my clients set and attain their recovery goals has been one of the biggest blessings of my life. I am honored and grateful to share some of their stories.

I started to see Achara due to the death of my mother as well as uncovering other family traumas. For these last 14 weeks I have seen such a transformation in myself and how I handle my relationships with others. She helped me discover the tools needed to understand my trauma, name it, and grow past it. The generational trauma in my family stops with me!Nicole
I remembered the work we have done. Especially the part where I wanted my partner to be able to feel safe around me. I was able to speak directly about my experience and feelings without trying to inflame the situation and pull a large response. It went over so well, that I was like “Wait, that’s it?” I’m glad we were able to address the issue quickly without it turning into an ordeal. J
I am now enjoying the inner tingly feelings as I feel self love, the unconditional love that I don’t recall ever feeling before. I am allowing this new sensation to sit and am getting used to feeling this love. I believe that I’ve walked through another door to more fantastic opportunities. Lisa
