Journey of the hopeful healer


This presentation will emphasize the power of hope in healing from trauma, along with practical application of healing techniques. A journey from hopeless to hopeful, using stories of her life, and her work in addiction and trauma recovery, to bring new life to a wounded population.

Mackenzie brings with her a unique perspective, much of which has been shaped by her own battle with substance abuse, in addition to overcoming and healing from a history of complex trauma. “My addiction was so powerful, and so rooted in early trauma, that I lost myself for many years. Now, with a strong recovery I’m committed to helping others find their voice.”
