Trauma Recovery Coaching
One of Anne's main focuses in TRC is to walk with trauma survivors to help them say goodbye to shame and make peace with their bodies. Because so much of trauma is in our bodies, not our minds, we may face issues with food, weight and body image and all of the baggage that goes with these. As one who has struggled in these areas, Anne walks with you on your journey.
Trauma Recovery Coaching is a relational coaching that helps trauma survivors deal with the present-day effects of cPTSD that is both different from and not a substitute for therapy. If you are experiencing a serious mental health issues, you should contact a medical professional or therapist If you are facing an immediate crisis, call a mental health helpline, 911 in the US or go to the emergency room.

The Path of Exploration
One of the most frustrating aspects of trauma and complex PTSD is that it isn't always diagnosed and a trauma survivor doesn't realize that they are just that. This type of coaching is for anyone who wonders. Anyone who wonders why they are having difficulty in life and wants to understand how experiences in life can have long-standing effects many years later.
Anne will work with you to determine the best course of action. It may be trauma recovery coaching, it may be therapy or it may be empowering, transformative life coaching. It may be something else entirely! If you need more help than Anne is able to provide, as long as your primary care professional approves, she will gladly work alongside them as your coach or advisor.

Like you, or someone you care about, I have walked a difficult path.
Like you, or someone you treat, my story is long and complex.
If we choose the path toward healing, we all take that journey in our individual way. I think this important to know, whether you are on this journey yourself, guiding another or encounter someone with trauma issues in your practice. My intention in speaking about my trauma is multi-faceted. I want others to know they are not alone. I also want everyone to know that healing is possible. Most of all, though, I want to make sure no one goes through what I did.
Anne Von denMeer is a Trauma-Informed Emotional Wellness Advisor, podcaster, writer, speaker and proud disruptor of any status quo that enables dysfunction to continue.
She has overcome Complex PTSD from both childhood and medical abuse. Her condition was misdiagnosed multiple times, leading to the events that almost ended her life in 2015.
After that time, having gone through five years of intense psychotherapy, including the correct diagnosis and eventual integration of the actual causes of both her psychological and physical issues, Anne realized that trauma survives in silence. She knew she had to speak out.
When 2015 began, Anne required a walker to safely move and was sleeping 20 hours a day. Today, she has a daily yoga and meditation practice, walks four miles most days, offers multiple coaching options and, although it is by far the scariest thing she has ever done, speaks to others about healing trauma.
