Trauma-Informed Coaching and Crisis Peer Support


Jody Betty is a Trauma-Informed Coach and a Certified Crisis Responder, with the skills to help people through the heightened period of their crisis. She provides validation and compassion from the viewpoint of both a leader and a peer, guiding people through a heated emotional crisis to a period of cool down and safety. 

Coaches and Peer Support mentors are most useful when the client is able to contribute to their own recovery. Many people find this support helpful as an addition or replacement of traditional talk therapy, or as a form of support while waiting between appointments, or simply if you cannot afford traditional therapies. Mentors do not diagnose or prescribe treatments or medications. 

As a coach and peer mentor, Jody helps set attainable goals with her clients in order for them to achieve the life they desire. She also provides education about trauma, crisis, and recovery, and unlike a clinical therapist, is able to share personal experiences to let her clients know they are not alone in their thoughts and feelings. 

Jody helps clients shift their thinking in order to replace those negative thoughts and coping mechanisms with new, healthier perspectives and a new toolbox of coping techniques, thereby causing a shift in how they view both themselves and the world. Jody’s empathy, understanding, and knowledge have helped countless people work through their trauma to live happier, more fulfilled lives. Let go of the trauma with qualified help and understanding.

    This sounds absolutely incredible Jody, especially the fact that it’s online. Being online means I can heal without going out so there’s no stress about getting to an appointment and no Uber charges! Not only that, the cost is so low, that I won’t have to drop out halfway through because I’ve run out of money and can’t afford to continue. The best thing about your peer support is that I’m going to be healing in the comfort of my own home and that means I won’t have to even get a shower, let alone get out of my p.j.’s if I’m having a difficult day …when does it start? 🙂
