THE WHO, WHAT, AND WHY.
I'm Emily Jones, mama, veteran spouse, lover of travel, and a certified trauma informed life coach through the ICF. I am a woman who loves new experiences and moments, good coffee and fresh air.
Trauma is not defined as one specific instance. Trauma is any deeply distressing or disturbing experience. It can be living in extreme stress, an anxiety inducing job for an extended period of time, through any type of more well known trauma such as abandonment or abuse. As a trauma informed coach I am here to hold space for you and your story, whatever it is, so that you can uncover the root causes of your struggles and shift them!
When I learned to lean into my healing and what my soul really craved, I was able to unravel the blocks in my life. Everything started to come back to me.
My strength, my ability to be the mom, wife, sister, daughter and woman that I want to be. It's always a work in progress, but I've built tools and methods to create massive growth.
Now I help others sift through the triggers and blocks we get as women growing into our own skin. There is a better way to live our everyday than to feel like we are stuck in chaos.
The main source of change is a willingness to heal.
Together we will uncover the triggers and stories that keep you stuck in a pattern that doesn't serve you. We will make space for you to hold or move through the difficult emotions that arise, and decide for yourself how you'd like to show up for these.
We will do the work, and we celebrate every one of the moments that you feel alive. My job is to help you create tools that serve you, help you hold the space for the beautiful and the difficult. We will do this using grounding techniques, exploratory practices, and focusing on listening to what your body and nervous system need.
Because we rise by lifting others, and that is a ripple that will continue forever.

What is trauma informed coaching?
Trauma informed coaching is a supportive coaching practice with an understanding of how trauma impacts our ability to have relationships, set and accomplish goals, and to function in our day to day life. As a trauma informed coach I take into account how trauma impacts my clients brains and bodies, and how it is stored within our bodies, hindering us from healing. The goal with Trauma informed coaching is not to diagnose mental illnesses or traumas, but to help you live fully WHIILE you are healing from them.
As your coach, I focus on moving forward, rather than reliving the past. How are you being triggered right now? What is holding you back from the future you hope to have?
My job is to help you truly understand that trauma is not a life sentence. You can learn to reground when you are triggered. You can reconnect to your inner knowing, and come to the understanding that the stories you hold about yourself no longer get to hold you back. They do not have the power. You do.
But don't I need to see a therapist?
You may. If your trauma is brand new and fresh then a licensed therapist may be the way to go. If you are in need of a trusted therapist and don't know where to turn, I have a curated list of those that I trust to help you through this time.
But there comes a time when retelling your story can do more harm than good. If you've worked through traditional therapy and are not having success releasing your traumas, then trauma informed coaching may be for you.
Most of the time, and never if you are uncomfortable with it, do I need to know the details of your trauma. Sounds crazy right?
I focus on your thoughts and feelings right here and now, because those are what you are currently giving your power to. As we begin to work on these thoughts that are created, you will uncover stories that you hold about yourself that you didn't even realize were there. This is why coaching is so powerful.
