The following are some testimonials about Trauma
From hopeless to feeling like I have control over my life again.
—Linda, St. Louis, MO
"Since I was a child I have struggled with severe depression and anxiety. As I entered my teenage years, I began to use alcohol to cope with my insecurities. After high school, I began a downward spiral that led to 4 hospitalizations within 8 years. Many times, I would get focused on suicide and hopelessness, and shortly after, an attempt would follow.
After my last attempt, which was the most dangerous, my boyfriend found Angie at Harmony Harbor, and so I began my treatment. I had two obstacles when finding treatment. I have a young daughter, so care for her during my sessions was necessary. Also, money. I was fortunate enough to have a good support system in place and therefore both obstacles were easily overcome.
I chose Angie because of her wonderful reviews and testimonies on google and her website, but that isn't the only reason I chose her. She called me while I was in the hospital and that was when I gained a lot of respect for Angie. She was adamant that I was the one seeking help and not other people pushing me into treatment. This made me feel safe from the start with her and I knew she was on my side. As I am writing this testimonial now, I remember back to that time in the hospital 6 months ago and I am so relieved that I have taken this journey with Angie. My past hasn't changed, my memories didn't go away, but I feel like I have control over my life again. I have been given skills and processes to stick to when times get rough. My whole attitude has changed and for that I am most grateful.
The part I enjoyed most was simply talking with Angie. Sometimes, I would sit in my car and I would be in a good mood and I knew I was going to have to get real with her, so I would have resistance to going inside. Or, just the opposite, I would feel really down and I felt too defeated to walk to the door. But, each time I would get up the courage to walk up to the door and by the time I left, I felt rejuvenated and ready to conquer the world. I feel like every time I needed to try something else, a different process to follow, Angie knew just what I needed.
I still have good and bad days, but the bad days are fewer and I now know how to handle the thoughts that lead me into bad days. I think these techniques, as long as I continue to implement them, are the most instrumental in the healing and coping process for me. Thanks, Angie!"
I cleared some family trauma I was sure was permanent.
—Angela Renkoski, St. Louis, MO
“Angie Monko's wonderfully intuitive facilitation style is incredibly helpful with EFT. With me, her penetrating questions helped me bring to consciousness several long-held limiting beliefs, which I was then able to resolve to a great degree during our phone call and tapping session. The best part is her compassionate, gentle voice allayed my fears with the process and emotions and helped me clear some family trauma I was sure was permanent. She also supported me with emails for the session and followed up. All of that ensured that I got the benefits not only of the session but also beyond in inspiration and willingness to keep up the tapping. She's a joy to work with!”
