Powerfully powerless: Destiny

Destiny is a Trauma Recovery Coach.

"It was something I never thought about or seen myself doing but always have liked helping people. I just needed it to be in my own way on my terms. I never knew then that what I was doing and how I was navigating my world was in a Trauma-informed Care way. I only realized the impact it was having on me and the issues I face due to abuse, C-PTSD while living with a disability.

Traditional therapy, while helpful and has its place, focused more on the issue presented. Being a disabled person many of my issues weren’t at hand or to the forefront…because I was there for another purpose. Attention went to current symptoms and making them go away, with each person involved failing to realize the other issues that created blocks in my healing which were heavily seen by myself at home during homework or reading, when having to look for definitions to every second word I came upon. As you can imagine it created more concerns and struggles that a therapist doesn’t always have time to address and a feeling of failing at overcoming or dealing with my mental health. Mental Health and Physical Health seemed to always belong in separate spaces.


dear god, are we there yet?

We are in a world that is continuously changing, and therefore we must adapt to it. Thanks to social service, many lives are benefiting. That is why our passion leads us to seek alternatives that generate impact through small actions, which, over time, will dramatically positively influence our environment.

We live in a globalized world, and the experiences that we have today will transform lives that would make us reconnect with our human essence.
