Unhealed traumas from our past form defense patterns that lead to fragmentation. Yet these wounded parts are longing for integration. And our adult selves are wanting to thrive instead of just survive. We know that healing is possible, we’re just not always sure how.
The deepest possible healing is available through the gentle and effective art of reparenting our wounded inner parts. It is an empowering, accessible, affordable process that touches the core of these patterns and truly transforms them.
We learn how to become integrated, alive, and harmonious adults capable of a strong sense of inner wellness, thriving relationships, and ease around offering our gifts to the world.
Trauma Healing Begins Here
Our definition of trauma is ‘any experience that we cannot integrate.’ Complex trauma is often defined as repeated unintegrated and unresolved experiences.
For many of us growing up in under resourced and ill-equipped households, within the context of a toxic cultural framework, we have a myriad of experiences that we have not integrated.
Trauma causes us to disconnect from our essence, from core and important parts of ourselves. Over time, these parts become “disowned” and fragmentation is the result.
Instead of moving through the world with our innate wisdom, delightful embodiment, and connection with our divinity in tact, we struggle with self sabotage in the form of insecurity, disassociation, codependence, abuse (to self and others), shame and blame, codependence, anxiety, rage, and more.
Oftentimes these adaptive strategies lead to habitual negative coping strategies that manifest as addictions and ongoing patterns of trauma in our adult lives.
Fortunately, we possess the ability to heal this cycle of dysfunction. The solution is to become our own loving parent.
Thankfully this is an elegant and accessible healing modality. Once we learn the formula, we can begin to befriend every part of ourselves and reintegrate parts of us that have been wanting to “come home” to the self.
This half-day, virtual workshop is modeled on the reparenting process offered within Adult Children of Alcoholics and Dysfunctional Families. ACA is a 12 Step program that focuses on emotional sobriety. ACA is a spiritual program, not a religious program. The only requirement for membership is a desire to recover from the effects of growing up in an alcoholic or otherwise dysfunctional family. The program is recommended for people who have suffered abuse, neglect, abandonment, and trauma in childhood due to the behavior of addicted or dysfunctional immature parents.
In addition to the ACA reparenting process, I will be combining embodiment as well as self and co-regulation components. I am forever grateful to ACA for pioneering a simple, accessible, and effective format for deep healing. Read more about The Problem, The Solution, The Laundry List (14 traits of an adult child of dysfunction), The 12 Steps of ACA, and to How to find an ACA meeting.
ACA says it best: “By growing up in a dysfunctional family many of us did not have the loving parent we desired or deserved. Becoming our own Loving Parent is at the core of healing from a neglectful childhood; it is the gateway to our Inner Child. Many adult children have never considered the idea of reparenting ourselves, but with help and support, we can do so with gentleness, humor, love and respect. Through recovery, we use reparenting to connect with ourselves and others in a healthy manner.” Taken from adultchildren.org.

“Having grown up in a highly dysfunctional home I found myself coping in unhealthy ways at a very early age. In fact, by the time I was 17, I was dealing with a severe drug and alcohol addiction. Thankfully, at that same time (age 17), I found recovery through an in patient treatment center and immersed myself in the 12 steps of recovery.
Over the course of these many years, I explored a multitude of different personal and spiritual growth paths. Although I healed in many ways, I still found myself plagued with relationship, career, and financial struggles. No matter how hard I tried, I seemed to re-create the painful patterns of my past.
Through a series of major life crises, I was forced to find new modalities of healing and support, which led me to discover ACA and becoming my own loving parent.
Discovering and practicing this body of work has been one of the most pivotal healing points in my life journey and I want to be able to share it with the world. It is truly that powerful!
I continue to learn and grow as I discover my internal parts, engage with love, and bring harmony to my inner family. As a result , I am experiencing major shifts in my ability to feel inner peace clarity and becoming who I want to be in life.”

Sliding Scale is a type of fee structure where people with more resources can pay a higher price and people with fewer resources can pay at a lower price. In this system the student determines the rate, no questions asked. There is an inherent trust, allowance, and collaboration in this system that honors both the time and experience of the teacher as well as intuition, income, and ability of the student.
That being said, PLEASE choose the highest level on the sliding scale that you can. A good rule of thumb is to pay at a price point that is a stretch but not a strain.
Grassroots educators are akin to artists and farmers: we rely on receiving a livable wage to continue to offer high quality education at an affordable price. If all students choose the lowest price point, these offerings will quickly become unsustainable.
