I found Carin at my lowest, most broken point in my marriage.
She was a complete God send.
She understood my betrayal story more than any other person and professional I had ever met. Her skills and training were so obvious from the start but I think the main think about Carin was how so exuded peace, calm, comfort and care. She not only listened well but had advise and exercises specific to trauma and betrayal trauma. There is no quick fix to a broken marriage but if both of you are willing to put in the work then miracles can happen. And Carin has been there every step of the way to help bring restoration and a redemption story.
“It is difficult to put into words everything that my experience with Carin and her caring heart has meant to me. But here goes. Carin's personal experience, specialized training, and willingness to deal with a very painful reality in my life has earned her a special place in my heart forever! She has helped me make informed decisions. And she has become a trusted guide, providing truthful, subject-specific information and clarity to a very murky place in my heart and mind. She helped me to feel safe. Her help in dealing with my husband's addiction and the accompanying trauma is an answer to prayer. With her, I learned my husband's addiction isn't a reflection of my worth. I didn't "cause" his addiction, it wasn't even about me. She is willing to sit with me in my pain. She taught me to identify and feel my feelings. She helped me develop enough courage to face my (painful) reality. She walked with me to heal multiple deep layers of trauma. She helped me regain my voice. She taught me about self care and provided other exercises, and resources that have aided in my recovery. Her encouragement to look at the ongoing "post traumatic growth" has restored a level of hope that I think would ever exist again. God has used her in my life as an invaluable tool for my healing”
Every Testimony is a Doorway into Hope
Others have gone before you on this journey. Their invitation is:
"Come follow in our footsteps. We were in pain and hopeless too."
“Carin, just a quick note to say how much I loved our new group today! You are an awesome facilitator, and I feel so blessed to be among such incredible women. Thank you so much for including me! ”
I cannot begin to say what a gift it is to know you, to learn from you, and to be lifted by you through some of the darkest days I have ever known.
You saved my life.
I feel teary when I write it.
About 4 years ago I took your class on boundaries. It helped me unburry myself from the confusion and darkness of betrayal.
I have loved working with Carin. She is a gifted trauma therapist, she beautifully integrates faith into her work. She goes above and beyond for her clients, often sending helpful paperwork, or exercises to aid in the recovery process. I love how she helped me get integrated into my body, to be present and embodied in the work I was doing with her. She was able to help me explore some really painful points by directing me towards Christ's healing power. Overall, I have had a great experience working with Carin! She is empathetic, understanding, and professional!
