My hope is that by learning about the transformations I’ve had in my life…
You’ll begin to see what changes are possible for you, too.
As you’ll see, your past doesn’t define you… and it doesn’t predict your future.
Whether you’re in your 20s… feeling lost in the world as an adult…
Or a seasoned professional wondering… “Is this all there is?”…
Know that those places were very familiar to me.
The good news is they don’t have to last forever.
In my case, childhood trauma and resulting CPTSD are what caused me to play small for decades…
Even when I thought I was playing the “game of life” correctly.
Whether or not any physical/emotional/verbal abuse is what’s causing YOU to feel stuck in your life or work today…
It is never too late (or too early) to design the life you truly want to live.
So let’s get to it… here’s how doing my trauma work changed my life.
I went from (and you can too!)…
And most importantly…
Having very little self-compassion to… accepting myself, flaws and all.
BUT… the work never ends.
I have more transformations ahead of me, more fears to befriend, more goals to achieve…
WHILE also being here, content with the present.
As a woman, person of color, and first-generation American, I have a unique blend of experiences that shaped me… and so do you.
Once again – your past doesn’t define you.
Each moment that unfolds, you get to choose.
What will you choose next?
Trauma can make it hard to hear your real voice within.
I’m here to help, so you can use your power to design a life that’s truly aligned with you.
I’m a Trauma Informed Certified Coach (TICC) with training from Moving the Human Spirit, as well as coach training from Lumia, both wonderful ICF-accredited programs. I’m also polyvagal-informed with training from Deb Dana and the Polyvagal Institute.
Alongside coaching, I’m an independent direct response copywriter for fellow coaches, health businesses and course creators. I’m motivated every day to help mission-driven businesses share their much needed solutions with their customers.

I’ve been an artist my whole life. I received my B.A. in Art from UC Santa Barbara in 2008, have shown work in NYC and LA, and continue to sell pieces online. Visit karoleendartist.com to learn more.
Prior to copywriting, I spent 15 years as a graphic designer, UI/UX designer and researcher for healthcare, mental health and education.
I’ve worked at various design studios, tech start-ups in NYC, and McKinsey & Company as an Associate Design Director before branching out on my own in 2019.
Leading teams and navigating the corporate environment inspired my work as a coach and copywriter.
One example of how survival mode can make life difficult is that it can keep you from making confident decisions.
Don’t waste another minute pacing back and forth in your head…
