About Our Podcast

Sher is a woman committed to an ongoing journey of processing childhood trauma for herself and those she works with, to experience real healing and freedom.  She carries her own stories of abuse, emotional abandonment, and harm to her body, soul and spirit.  She knows the effects of shame and contempt which silenced her voice and kept her stuck in insecurity, fear and feelings of unworthiness.  Understanding how to process trauma has brought healing and freedom for Sher, and for those she works with to heal their deep wounds.  She invites you to join her and Kandace, experience your breakthrough aha insights and embrace your beauty and joy as you journey further into your own healing.

The scars of childhood trauma don’t fade away. The roots go deep. This  trauma can wrap tentacles around every aspect of life, pushing and pulling us according to its will.  These stories of harm have been hard wired into our brain. Yet, we don’t see the connection of childhood trauma and current day pain because it has been with us as far back as we can recall. We don’t realize this trauma is the source of our struggle to feel peace, joy, and love.  Instead, we live with emptiness, loneliness,  anxiety and shame.

The wounds of your trauma can be healed. It’s a process and we hope our podcast can help.

About Kandace Rather

Kandace is a woman who courageously and cautiously goes into the depths of healing childhood trauma with those who are ready. She knows the unfortunate experience of being retraumatized in a therapeutic setting, and therefore, seeks to offer a deeply kind and safe space for others to heal. Kandace is committed to stay on the path of doing her own healing work and continues to meet with her Story Work Coach. It’s from this space she invites others to the wonder of living a beautifully compassionate life towards self and others. As you join in to listen to Sher and Kandace process trauma outloud, may it spark your own curiosity on what having a kind witness to your stories of harm can mean for your own healing and the healing of those you love.
