Our Consultants:

Diverse voices with a shared purpose are essential to the change we are seeking.

The research and science of trauma is informed through multiple disciplines.  Shared language, understandings, and consistency in how the growing base of knowledge is applied are vital to cultural change.  For these reasons, founder Emily Read Daniels builds strong relationships with others working toward this similar goal. Practitioners, survivors, educators, sacred healers, artists, and change consultants are represented in HERE this NOW.
