Meet Karen

I believe it’s time to change the narrative around healing childhood trauma.

I aged out of foster care and struggled with severe PTSD, as well as other long-term effects of childhood trauma for most of my life. Like most of my clients, I tried therapy, self-help books, workshops, and seminars. I also practiced (and taught) a form of Qigong, that done in deep meditation and went on many retreats with world renowned spiritual masters.  

Though many of the things I tried definitely diminished the intensity and frequently my inner battles, I never was able to live free of that core feeling of defectiveness that is almost universal among childhood trauma survivors, so I always returned to my search for healing.

It took nearly a lifetime of searching to find the deeper healing I had been searching for. I want to be clear, I am absolutely not against therapy or any of the modalities or processes I used. Almost all of them helped me, but none of them, not even therapy, which probably helped me the most, healed the core wound I had carried from my childhood into my adult life. I do know though, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that if I has started my journey with The Free Method, I would have shortened my healing journey by decades and live a more happy and successful life.  

The Free Method, is based on a unique fusion of what I learned over 30 years of working in personal development and through my own searching for my trauma healing. I have studied under several great teachers who based their programs on Belief Resolution on, Cognitive Behavioral Theory, but only the last few created process that quickly, deeply, and permanently, resolve trauma-induced Core Beliefs.

After deciding I wanted to specialize in working with clients to clear their trauma induced beliefs, I began to see each my teacher’s work had strengths, but significant weakness, so began developing my own fusion of the best practices I had been taught. I call it the, The Free Method.

The word “transformational” get thrown around a lot these days, but I have witnessed The Free Method fundamentally change who you see yourself to be, how you perceive their worth, how you see your relationships, and how you experience life. That kind of shift is truly transformational. 

The most common response I hear after from those who have gone through The Free Method is, “Oh my God! Do you mean I could have lived my whole life feeling this way? Why didn’t anyone tell me about this sooner?” Each time I hear a client say that, it renews my passion for doing this work and it reignites my passion for helping to create a new narrative around trauma resolution.

So, now I am on a mission. I want to help as many people as I can resolve their trauma-induced beliefs AND to educate as many people as I can about clearing trauma-induced Core Beliefs and how quickly, deeply, and permanently, this core wound can be “healed”.

It’s time to change the narrative around resolving childhood trauma. I am dedicated to helping do that
