Counseling & Mental Health | Longview, WA
I am an Alternative Holistic Behavioral Life Coach. I am focusing on Betrayal Trauma Recovery, Marriage Infidelity Recovery, and Divorce Coaching.
Betrayal Trauma starts with a breach of trust so devastating that we have to change our understanding of the world around us to deal with it. The way our brain interprets this is that we are not safe. To create safety we adopt new thought patterns. The trauma is much like someone who has been in life-threatening situations. These traumas keep coming when our spouse lies or again does something that hurts us so severely. Such traumas collided to create feelings and behaviors that make life hard for many people.
We start by facing the beliefs and thoughts that your partners’ betrayal has instilled. I then teach Partners of Addicts healthy boundaries, how to make an action plan, goals for self-recovery, and life discovery.
I am open to couples coaching to give both partners the best chance at the relationship they want to build together. I always start with the betrayed partner and move out from there. I do have programs for Addicts but they are in research mode and not a full plan yet.
Building your strengths and continually expressing your truth opens the doorway to unimaginable freedom.
Betrayal Trauma comes in many forms and the abuse that accompanies it is earth-shattering. Focusing on your personal and sexual safety is of utmost importance. Having an action plan gives an immediate relief and power. There is a healing with knowing you will be safe and happy even if your partner continues the same destructive path. With new tools and knowledge, you will be able to form your own vision of what you want your life to be and move towards that and away from the pain, you are currently experiencing.

Having help getting an Action Plan and Boundaries that I could actually follow has been the best thing I’ve ever done. We are finally moving forward, and if things do go wrong, I know exactly what I am doing. Karina was so supportive and she really knows where I am coming from. You can really tell she has been in the same perdictiment." - Stephine M.
