Understanding Trauma and Healing the Past
Christi Garner, LMFT, has been featured on Huffington Post, Washington Post, Life Money, Bustle, UPJOURNEY, Senior Living, Fatherly, and many other media outlets discussing trauma, PTSD and how the human mind works to understand and live with the effects of trauma in our everyday lives as well as how to heal from trauma and PTSD.
Christi speaks to the audience from personal experience and professional understanding. Growing up in a family system of dysfunction, unhappiness and after recovering from a teenage sexual assault, alcohol and drug use- she decided to turn her life around, embarking on a journey to learn about how to help others deal with these situations better. After 20 years working with survivors and first responders, 10 years as a psychotherapist, she started to travel the world and work internationally with those on the frontlines of peace and war, speaking to organizations about abuse, how to be trauma informed and how to help those who need healing from PTSD and trauma.
Christi bases her practical, down to earth approach on the most up to date science with real-life applications, and speaks about the power of welcoming change and how the mind works when it comes to motivation, trauma, success and learning to create an environment for change.
