The combination of insights from each of these areas have allowed Carrie to develop specific trauma informed practices aimed at helping each person achieve their bodywork goals in a safe and empowering environment.

Carrie is really passionate about supporting people wherever they are by validating the reality of stress and trauma in our society while helping them to find any inner resources that may help relieve stress along the way. Carrie believes it is essential to support people in fighting systems of oppression and injustice in addition to helping people achieve as much resilience and peace as is possible along the way. Trauma informed work, according to Carrie, involves the macro and the micro of both the inner and the outer worlds.
