When I came to Trina, I needed growth at a deeper level than what I had experienced in the past. I knew I needed someone who would teach me the skills and strategies that would move me forward. I had no understanding of personal boundaries or how foundational they would be to build healthy relationships (especially with myself). I gained insight into my behaviors that were holding me back and hindering my growth. Because she provided a safe and trusting environment, it made it easier to make the progress I needed. Trina’s unconditional, non-judgment, structured process with true goals to work towards, gave me a light to my path. This method of learning has been very enlightening and opened up a whole new way for me to live. To participate in this structured learning process has been invaluable! It has continued to enrich my personal relationships as well. Trina has truly been a gift in my life.
The referral to Trina, from a trusted friend, gave me the push I needed. Trina immediately put me at ease, was always kind, empathetic, and non-judgmental. She helped me get on the right path to have healthy relationships; Trina challenged me to reach my goals and held me accountable throughout the process. Her teaching & coaching has made a positive difference in my life, yet the materials used have been an extra bonus that helped me build a firm foundation. Today I am peaceful and in control of my life with healthy personal boundaries that have real meaning. Building boundaries has been the most important benefit. While my recovery is a journey, without taking the first steps with her, I would not have had the opportunity to learn and grow.
Trina has coached me on a regular basis in building healthy relationships with myself, God & others, as well as walked along beside me as I worked though recovery and the 12 steps. Because of her excellent mentoring and God’s grace, I have been able to improve many other areas in my life that I wanted to change. She followed up with me and made suggestions and when I encountered challenges, she encouraged me to believe in myself. Because of my work with Trina, I now have healthy personal boundaries and can claim my own personal responsibilities. I’ve learned to draw my significance from Christ and live as my authentic self. I would highly recommend Trina as a teacher, coach, mentor, sponsor & friend. If you are interested in growing, by making positive choices & changes in your life, allow Trina to walk that path beside you. I did and I’m grateful to now be living in the freedom God intended.
Trina coached me through many difficult challenges in my life with much care and skill. Her guidance kept me working on my own personal journey to reach my full potential. I was able to achieve all my goals that I set out to accomplish and now I’m working on my dreams. She has been amazing and such a blessing in my life.
During the time Trina has mentored & coached me, I have achieved so many of my personal goals and dreams. She has helped me find my life purpose and today my walk with God is much closer than ever before. In spite of the difficulties I’ve faced in my life during the past few years, I am healthier because Trina has encouraged and challenged me to reach beyond what I thought I could achieve alone. I see Christ’s love in her compassionate approach and what a prayer warrior she is. I’ve been truly blessed to have had her apart of my life and I consider her a true friend.
The single most important benefit I achieved during my time with Trina was greater self-esteem. I learned to love “me” for the person I am. I was struggling with negative thoughts about myself and comparing myself to others. I needed to start accepting the person that I am inside and out. I never thought I could look at myself in the mirror and think I was pretty or even think I was special. Trina helped me to see that we are all created equal & in a beautiful way. The Breaking Free Boundaries program helped me to see the steps I needed, on paper and not just hearing them. I never left confused. I always understood everything she said. I am also able to look back on the materials she gave me when needed. I’ve learned a lot but one of the biggest insight was learning about boundaries and how “I” make “myself” happy, not my husband or “anyone” else. I want everyone to know I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Trina. I almost didn’t come to her because of distance but for some reason I decided that didn’t matter. I’m so thankful I did and you will too.
