The Trauma Warrior’s Toolbox

Nutrition and Lifestyle Game-changers to Support Trauma Recovery

Do you get frustrated by how overwhelmed or emotionally exhausted you get when you feel triggered? Does trauma-related anxiety run your life? Do you struggle with sleep?

Navigating everyday stress can be challenging, but when you’ve got a trauma history in the background, it can make you feel extra sensitive to stress and make it harder to get your mind and body back on track when you feel triggered. Maybe you’ve heard that nutrition and lifestyle changes can help you heal, but you have no idea where to find those resources.

I’ve been there, and I’m here to help. I’m a registered dietitian, health coach, author, and certified Pilates instructor who also happens to be a PTSD survivor. I also know how hard it can be to find the supportive resources you need. That’s why I created the Trauma Warrior’s Toolbox.

This course is intended to be a supplement, a complement to conventional therapy or other healing modalities.

Is this course for you?

Do you have a history of trauma that is impacting your eating habits, mood, sleep, and self-esteem? Have you worked with or are you currently working with a therapist but feel like something is missing? Are you easily overwhelmed by stress and frustrated that you are thrown off by triggers? Do you find it hard to trust others and to trust your own body? Do you just want to feel “normal” again?

You may be tired of trying to figure out everything yourself and ready to make a change, but you also have a lot going on in your life between work, family, and social demands, and need to be realistic about your time and energy bandwidth—oh man, do I get that.

In this course, you will hear from people who understand what you are going through and gain tools for trauma recovery. You are not alone.

In this 8-week course we cover topics such as: 

  • Demystifying the ways trauma affects the mind and body
