Trauma Informed Care

We got our start by bringing trauma awareness education and somatic movement modalities to our city's under-served community two years ago. In two short years our trauma informed programs offer hope and help to those who would not normally be able to partake of these evidence-based healing programs because of the high cost of services, and national training workshops to help train and deliver proper trauma education to trauma survivors and teacher trainers. 


We are honored to be welcoming and hosting
