I will be your faithful guide in this healing journey. I have devoted my life's work to supporting survivors of sexual trauma in their process of healing.
Much of my experience centers around supporting trauma survivors working one-on-one, leading group healing circles in university settings as well as working in clinical settings supporting patients in their journeys toward mental health & wellness.

hello!  I'm Aurea!

hello!
I'm Aurea!

Trauma-informed Yoga therapist, 
resilience educator...
& Rising survivor of sexual trauma

I see you and all of the ways you have worked so hard to rise above and soldier on… to carry the weight of your wounds and keep showing up… working hard… refusing to let anything (especially your trauma) stop you from succeeding, achieving and building a good life.⁠

I have walked a similar path… I did everything I could to put it behind me, learning to carry on as if it never happened. I focused all of my energy on my goals… working hard at school… college… getting a good job… climbing that corporate ladder… filling my life with fun friends and meaningful relationships… building my life.⁠

Survivors like you and me made the decision that we would rise above, no matter what. Convinced that if we could just work hard enough to build a good life for ourselves, we could leave all of the pain buried in the past.⁠

And in a way it worked… we have become skilled survivors. We work hard… we power through… we refuse to allow it to hold us down.⁠

dear survivor of sexual trauma...

but do you ever wonder...

... is there still something deep down that is still waiting to be healed?

... is there still something deep down that is still waiting
to be healed?

... are there still ways that the wounds of my past are holding me back?

... are there still ways that the wounds of my past are
holding me back?

... is there more to healing than living in "high functioning survival mode"?

... how do I navigate this healing path & how do I set myself free?

exploring these big & challenging questions does not need to be something you do secretly &
on your own.

you weren't meant to do this alone.

The #METOO MOVEMENT showed us that there are legions of us out there who are surviving, healing and striving to free ourselves from the pain of our past.⁠

there is strength in numbers & we were meant to

rise together.

In the countless healing circles I've lead,
one of the most potent elements of healing
I have witnessed and experienced is the

power of healing in community.

especially for survivors of sexual trauma,
where we struggle to feel seen & validated in our healing challenges,
even despite supportive friends & family
who just cannot understand what we are going through.

WE HAVE SOLDIERED ON ALONE FOR FAR TOO LONG, 
IT IS TIME WE CAME TOGETHER IN COMMUNITY 
WITH OTHERS WHO ARE WALKING THIS SIMILAR PATH OF 
SURVIVING, HEALING & RISING.

a 12-week guided community healing journey for survivors of sexual trauma.

Together, in community with 16 fellow Survivors, we will wrap our arms around each other as we embark on the brave journey inward to acknowledge, honor and heal the wounds buried beneath the strength we show the world…

Holding each other in a safe and supportive healing circle, we will explore the depths of our inner discomfort in order to dismantle the limiting beliefs and habits that continue to hold us back, and
learn to transmute our WOUNDS into WISDOM.

 Claiming our hard-earned lived experience,
we will RISE UP TOGETHER…
a circle of resilient RISING SURVIVORS who have learned the
art of transforming PAIN into POWER.

so how does this
HEALING JOURNEY work?

Our 12-week journey begins on Monday, September 14th and runs through Thursday, December 10th.
(Thanksgiving week off.)

The program is structured in 12 weekly lessons with the intention of providing spacious time to reflect on the lessons & embody the practices without feeling rushed.

EACH WEEKLY LESSON INCLUDES:
 - a recorded Exploration Lesson that will be posted every Monday
- LIVE Zoom group classes every Thursday at 6pm alternating between:
     - guided group yoga practices
     - group yoga therapy sessions

We will connect in a secret Facebook group that will be our safe, healing sanctuary where we can let our guard down, share our raw experiences and receive support and encouragement.

words from survivors who have worked with me in the past...

"I met Aurea from a trauma healing group at my university, and it was the routine I looked most forward to every week. She is very welcoming to all abilities and adaptations, and I keep some of the items we made for meditation on my dresser and headboard, like calming stones and a beaded bracelet. I think my favorite practice was releasing our current troubles to the water. Thank you so Much Aurea!!!" - WS

"I met Aurea through a 10-Week Trauma-Informed Yoga workshop. Ever since then, I have looked up to her and the work that she does because it has inspired me to grow as an individual. She has a beautiful and wise soul that has positively influenced my life since I crossed paths with her. She is a very compassionate and patient person to not only herself, but those who surround her. My healing journey began the moment I met her because she guided me and gave me the tools I needed in order to practice self-love and forgiveness. Aurea has taught me the practice of self-awareness and compassion with myself and others which has positively impacted my relationships with my family, friends, and romantic relationships. I can't find the words to describe how much she poured into my cup during the time that I needed it the most and I will forever be thankful to her. My favorite thing about Aurea is that she is authentic and genuine, and most importantly human! Thank you Aurea, for all your love and compassion!" - EC

"This was such a difficult time in my life and the space you created challenged me to connect back to my body in a loving and honoring way.”
