My name is Serena Kelley (BA, CHC, TRC), and I’m a writer and Trauma Recovery Coach, educated by the International Association of Trauma Coaches.
I’m here to help you heal from past traumas, rewrite your story, and find peace and meaning in your life that will lead you to your life’s purpose.
I work specifically with abuse, cult, and extreme religion survivors. I have this niche because I lived it. I know what it's like to feel lost, angry, confused, and unable to climb out of the downward spirals you constantly find yourself in. I know it’s hard to find the right kind of help when you feel no one can relate to your life or provide you with the guidance you need.
I've gone from therapist to therapist, taking one step forward then two steps back. Learning, yes, but not fully healing or finding the purpose or joy that makes life meaningful.
That's why I created the help I wished I would have received.
What I do
I help you heal from past traumas by identifying the triggers and stressors Connected to those traumas and blocking you from moving forward in life. We remove negative patterns from unhealed traumas and replace them with new ones by changing the negative stories you believe about yourself based on your past experiences.
“I'm imperfect, vulnerable, and sometimes afraid. But I'm also brave, worthy of love, and belonging.”
-- Brene Brown
All I wanted in life was to be normal. To have a normal childhood, go to a normal school, have a normal job.
But I wasn’t a normal child and never had a normal life. I was born a child celebrity in a cult and grew up hiding my true identity.
As an adult I feared attacks from others, constantly worried that I would be "found out". It was only when I acknowledged my past, worked through my own trauma, learned to grieve my lost childhood and heal from my pain that I finally let go of the weight of my past that was never mine to carry.
