A coaching and wellness resource dedicated exclusively to supporting the spouses, partners, loved ones and caregivers of trauma survivors with operational stress injuries (OSI), post-traumatic stress (PTSD) and complex or developmental trauma (cPTSD).
I feel you my friend.
I feel your pain, your chaos and your exhaustion.
I see you endlessly searching for ways to heal your partner. Desperately hoping that THIS approach or modality or therapist will be the one to make it all better.
Putting on a brave face for your kids, your loved ones, your community -- when all you really want to do is curl up in a corner and weep. Or sleep for days.
You’re doing everything you can to support your loved one and your kids.
But there’s something you’re forgetting to look after: yourself.
That’s where I come in.
I'm here to help YOU heal.
To hold space and provide support for YOU.
Rising into Resilience gives you strategies, tools and permission to release your pain and guilt so that you can find peace and joy in your life again.
I support partners & loved ones of trauma survivors to develop skills and tools to help you create:
Clear the confusion and understand trauma and how PTSD can affect families & relationships. A trauma-informed perspective will help you love & support your partner or loved one with clarity & compassion.
Learn ways to express yourself clearly and compassionately without triggering your loved one - or allowing yourself to be triggered (respond instead of react).
Caring for someone else is totally depleting. I’ll help you find ways to create more time and cultivate opportunities to care for yourself without leaving your partner behind.
Set the foundation for what you will and won’t accept in your relationship and learn how to compassionately assert yourself, without inflaming the situation.
Use proven tools for healing your own wounds, and for building the emotional resilience to weather the storms of uncertainty and instability.
...of yourself, your partner and your new normal. Learn how to foster self-compassion and self-care and live peacefully again.
From a place of wellness and calm you’ll be better able to support your loved one and your family on the PTSD journey.

"What Carla's doing is important.
When your partner suffers trauma, it impacts your marriage and your family.
Because of my husband’s line of work, I see a lot of partners suffering. Marriages falling apart. There’s a lot of collateral damage that people don’t really talk about. But, sweeping it under the rug isn't helpful.
There's a real need for this work and I hope the people who are ready for healing will find their way to her."
Christine, Road to Resilience Participant
I know the pain and challenges of supporting a loved one with PTSD.
I also know how to rise above these challenges to find peace and joy in life again.
When my beloved partner was diagnosed with PTSD, our lives were turned upside down.
Like most partners, I gave up everything in my life to find ways to help him heal — to the point where I sacrificed my own health and well-being.
I totally burnt out!
I began searching for support groups and therapies that could help me.
But, it wasn’t easy, because there are so few resources to support the partners of people with OSI, PTSD and CPTSD.
I eventually discovered tools and therapies that brought me near instant relief to my pain and stress. This, combined with my background in psychology and skills as a transformational trauma-informed coach, gave me a suite of tools I knew could help people like me in this situation.
Rising into Resilience is a supportive resource and safe space for people who love someone who has experienced trauma.
It’s the resource, coaching and support I wish I had when I needed it most.
