 Now more than ever before it is clear that addressing current and past sexual / reproductive traumas is relevant to a large percentage of the people who you will relate with (in whatever capacity) throughout your life. It is extremely pertinent to take action and gain tools for recognizing, accommodating, and resolving traumas held within the body for ourselves as well as for those we interact with.

 During our time together in this certification training we will gain understanding and insight into what it is like to approach our relationships with ourselves and our clients  in a way that recognizes and accommodates people who have survived sexual and reproductive trauma(s).
