Trauma Recovery Coaching
The Path of Exploration
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 mental health issues, you should contact a medical professional, therapist or, if you are facing an immediate crisis, call a mental health helpline, 911 in the US or go to the emergency room.
Anne will be a Certified Trauma Recovery Coach in 2021. Please check back then for more information regarding specific services or send a message here for more information.

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 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.
Please check this section often, as it will be frequently updated in January of 2021as more plans are implemented.
Empowering, Transformative Life Coaching
Anne offers a multi-disciplinary life coaching process for those interested in making change(s) in their life and patterns and habits that may no longer serve them.
In addition to many years of private study of trauma and its effects, the Polyvagal Theory, somatic recovery methods, mindfulness, and lived experience, Anne is a certified Transformational Life Coach and certified group life coach practitioner. She is also a Therapeutic Art Life Coach and has developed her own art journal method and practice. Additionally, she has studied Fierce Mindful Self Compassion through the Center for Mindful Self Compassion and is a Transformational Meditation teacher. Anne is a licensed massage therapist and has completed Craniosacral 1 & 2 with the Upledger Institute. She is a Kundalini Reiki Master and Usui Reiki practitioner. Anne is a teacher and super trainer of the Danielle Collins Face Yoga Method, as well.
All of Anne's offerings are trauma informed. She is always open to a client switching to trauma coaching if they feel the need and she is open to those who feel they are ready to move from trauma recovery coaching to begin a more proactive process with her. She tailors the approach and process to each client.
Like you, or someone you care about, I've been through my own hell.
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, 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 five 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.
