Carla has spent the last 20 years in the mental health and addictions field as a Peer Leader and Advocate. When landing in the industry, Carla felt like she was home. As someone who has recovered from both mental health and addiction issues, her career has always been her passion work. Then came Emotional CPR, which was has become an even greater passion for Carla. Embodying the eCPR intentions and principles has helped her to serve others in an even deeper way.
The walls started to come down.
I was numb. Disconnected. I could barely put a sentence together because I was in such a stressful state at that point in my life. Everything was going too fast, the grief was so painful.
When I participated in an Emotional CPR training, the walls started to come down. I didn’t know what I was feeling…yet. But I didn’t have to. No one was there to “fix me,” as eCPR teaches that the healer is within me.
I have my own answers.
In that particular training session, my stressed/traumatized mind began to reconnect with my heart and body and I started to feel whole once again.
