Hey there and welcome if you’re new here! I’m Cassandra, a mama of 3 + bonus mom to 1 living in Southern California and running this business with my hunky hubby.
After working over a dozen years in various mental health settings, I saw a lot wrong with the system. The emphasis on diagnosing and putting people into a box, the power dynamics between the therapist and the client, how harmful the system is to people especially BIPOC, and how completely NOT trauma informed it is. . . All led me to break away and start this coaching business.
I want to be able to do it differently than I’ve seen. I want to be able to talk about your astrology or spirituality or that time you did mushrooms and had an awakening. I want to share about my experience as a recovering addict of 15 years, how I was homeless and physically abused and have been able to heal. About how I’m a trauma survivor, narcissistic abuse survivor, incest survivor, and that I’m into witchy woo woo things.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And at the heart of my work is the belief that healthy relationships are our birthright and we can all learn to have them if we don’t know how. That healthy relationships are how we stop integenerational trauma, how we can heal our own deep wounds, restore our own wholeness and heal the world. Yep, sounds totally idealistic, but maybe people wouldn’t be so divisive and disconnected from the rest of humanity if they healed their childhood wounds and and had fulfilling relationships!
So if you’re here for this mission of mine, welcome! I’m so grateful for EACH of you that thought enough to follow and give yourself the time to learn about what are healthy conscious relationships and heal! Celebrating you being here and looking forward to getting to know you more as I built out free and paid online communities where we can interact more!
