Trauma, Intergenerational Trauma


Northern Arizona University


Throughout generations, people have repeated unconscious generational cycles that have impacted how they feel internally, how they feel in their relationships, and how they parent. My purpose is to help people identify and break generational patterns so they can live more fulfilling lives, feel more internal peace, and experience a deeper connection in their relationships.
