Beverly Rosen JD, MBA, CPA, ACC, TICC
Beverly is an Inner Well-Being Coach with Om Freed. Her focuses are life and leadership coaching, helping professionals and leaders who struggle with managing stress, finding balance, and often getting through the day. She helps them through trauma-informed, mindful, and somatic coaching to heal, achieve their goals, and work through the changes needed to create their dream career and life.
Beverly’s clients reduce stress and overcome unhelpful, limiting, and even harmful, patterns through coaching. They connect with their creativity, rediscover their passions, create purpose for work and life, and make decisions as their authentic selves. This alignment leads to less stress, more success, and increased happiness.
Beverly became a coach after struggling through her professional career. During her 20+ years as an attorney and CPA she looked like she was a successful professional and rising leader who had it all together on the outside, but on the inside, she was a hot mess. She felt overwhelmed and overworked, was challenged by balancing the demands of work, home, and life, and often felt she could not get through the day. Eventually she became physically sick from the stress, suffering from autoimmune conditions, depression, and anxiety.
Through her healing journey from complex PTSD from childhood and adult trauma, she realized the part of her professions she most enjoyed was coaching others and was thankful for how coaching helped her to end the daily struggle. She became a coach to help others improve their lives and uses these skills one-to-one with coaching clients and every day in her current professional role as a Tax Manager to help her staff, colleagues, and tax clients lead happier, more fulfilling lives.
Beverly’s certifications as a coach include:
-Associate Certified Coach by the International Coaching Federation
-Certified Trauma-Informed Coach by Moving The Human Spirit
-Certified Mindfulness, Somatic and Wellness Coach by Mindfulness Coaching School
-Certified Meditation and Mindfulness Teacher by the School of Positive Transformation
-Certified Spiritual Coach by Transformation Academy
She is also a Usui Ryoho Reiki Master/Teacher and Registered Yoga Teacher (200-hour) with the Yoga Alliance.

She intuitively connects deeply with her clients expertly guiding them through a collaborative recovery process. Her expertise provides a measure of freedom from the devastating aftereffects of trauma, while equipping survivors with the tools needed to better heal their wounds and face future challenges.
Kerri’s own story began with a traumatic childhood. She is a survivor of complex PTSD. The abuse she suffered was chronic, repetitive, and on-going. She had no social support or protective factors. Kerri knows what it’s like to endure crippling adversity, to grow up in an unsafe environment, to live in constant fear, and feel truly helpless and hopeless. She knows how hard it is to move beyond the emotional upheavals and the broken family dynamics. She understands the adverse impact of toxic shame, the crippling depression, and the self-destructive coping methods one learns in order to survive. She knows the detrimental effects trauma has on learning, behavior, and health well into adulthood. Kerri has experienced firsthand the devastating impact that trauma and pervasive developmental trauma can have on a person, and the overwhelming despair it produces. She spent years redefining her pain, getting past it, building a life she loved, and along the way discovered a profound calling leading her to help others.
Inspired by her own journey of healing, lessons learned, and insights gleaned from working with top coaches, advisors, therapists and physicians specializing in childhood development and trauma, Kerri became a certified professional life and trauma recovery coach and founded her own company, Kerri Coaching. Kerri has held leadership and mentor roles for two decades, and has acquired expertise in energy management, pervasive/developmental trauma, attachment theory, neuroplasticity, cognitive behavior therapy, and complex PTSD, all of which she leverages to create her unique, highly effective coaching programs. With a fast-growing clientele that includes young adults, business executives, entrepreneurs, empty nesters and retirees, she equips trauma survivors in all stages of life with healthy tools to aptly navigate the challenging aftereffects. She guides them, facilitating a dialog that enables them to gain a new self-awareness around what they’ve suffered and how it’s adversely impacted them throughout all aspects of their life.
Kerri is accredited through IAOTRC where she received her Certified Professional Trauma Recovery Coach Supervision license and Tim Fletcher Co where she is a Certified Course Facilitator and Trauma Recovery Coach. Kerri has also received her Certified Professional Coach license from iPEC, one of the largest ICF-accredited coach training schools in the world and has an additional certification with the Energy Leadership™ Index (ELI). Kerri is also accredited through the ICF as a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) and she’s earned a Certified Trauma Informed Coaching license through MTHS.
Today, Kerri provides a safe, loving, inspiring space for trauma survivors to heal and thrive. It’s a connected, empowering space full of breakthroughs and paradigm shifts leading to a new sense of well-being. Clients can relate to Kerri’s story and are inspired by the strength and healing she has found on the other side. Her philosophy: "We heal deeply when we honor our pain, when we feel it, gain awareness around it, and learn from it. It is only then that we survivors can truly lay it to rest”. Based on the teaching of Dr. Gabor Mate, Kerri has innovated proven coaching programs that help complex trauma survivors address the biological, psychological, social and spiritual aspects of healing. With 20+ years of substantial healing and resilience to build upon, Kerri remains immersed in the world of making a difference.
When Kerri is not helping others heal, she's in the gym or outside, camping, hiking, biking or swimming. She loves to spend time with her friends and family, get lost in a good book, and spend long days at the beach.

Ergos Workshop: Once a Warrior – Always a Warrior: Enhancing Care of PTSD and Other Trauma-Related Conditions for Military, Veteran, and Civilian Clients w/ Dr. Levine & Charles Hoge, MD
Nicabm Workshop: Advanced Master Program on the Treatment of Trauma
Shirzad Chamine Positive Intelligence Training
Patient Family Advisory Council (PFAC) Sutter Roseville Medical Center
“Why” is this happening to me?'' is a common thought when something undesirable or tragic happens in our lives. As a result of Susan’s “why” experiences, she has worked diligently to turn her “why” to “What am I to learn from this?”
Ironically, when you understand the what, you know the why!
Susan brings her formal training as a life and trauma coach along with many years of life experience to her coaching offerings. She partners with individuals, couples, and groups in envisioning their desired life, recognizing the challenges and obstacles, and exploring the means to achieve it. She creates a safe environment, free of judgement, that presents individuals the space for deeper explorations.
She is noted for her easy going personality and witty sense of humor.
Susan was fortunate to co-created and co-facilitated two virtual group pilot programs; one addressing women and sobriety, and the other on PTSD with civilians and military. This experience was a huge eye opener for all involved. The greatest takeaway was the prevalence of trauma, along with the subtle and substantial impact it has in our lives.
“Forces beyond your control can take away everything you possess except one thing, your freedom to choose how you will respond to the situation.” -----Viktor E. Frankl
A lifetime dedicated to volunteering for various nonprofits groups, Susan’s most recent work include a spokesperson with the Sacramento American Heart Association/Go Red For Women, and assisting patients in the cardiac care unit at Sutter Hospital. Susan recently was appointed to the Patient Family Advisory Council (PFAC) Sutter Roseville Medical Center.
Susan was born and raised a farmer’s daughter in a small farming community. She and her ex-husband have a family farming operation along with their children.
Susan has been blessed with one grown daughter, two sons, and four beautiful grandchildren. Susan’s free time is centered around her family and bulldog, Willie.
Susan’s why is to find meaning and purpose in her life, and to help others find meaning and purpose in theirs.

In a safe and judgement free zone, Julie’s clients explore a totally new way of being in the world that has the power to manifest boundless possibility in their lives. Through a strong partnership of guidance, curiosity, and reflection, Julie’s clients learn how to get clear on their “dream life” vision, how to remove negative behavioral and thought patterns that aren’t serving this higher vision, and how to establish powerful practices and action steps to maximize their results and infuse their lives with authentic joy, abundant opportunity, and wholehearted living!
Julie began this journey toward more wholehearted living decades ago as a “student of life,” inspired by such wellness leaders as Eckhart Tolle, Tony Robbins, Brene Brown, Byron Katie, and her hero, Oprah Winfrey. Before becoming a coach, Julie was a client of coaching, herself. In just her first 6 months of having access to this work, she made powerful internal shifts in how she was showing up in her life, which led to her tripling her income goals at her business while cutting her work schedule in half! These shifts also generated massive opportunity for more meaningful relationships with loved ones, gracefully releasing toxic relationships and replacing them with inspiring new friendships, much needed downtime, and renewed travel adventures. Realizing how paramount her experience had been, she then made the exciting decision to enroll in Accomplishment’s Coaching’s renowned international ICF/ACTP Coaches Training Program and later Moving the Human Spirit’s enriching Trauma Informed Coaching Certification Program.
Today, Julie has a successful and heart-based coaching business with a diverse and world wide client list. She’s also the owner of Inspire Dance Studio in Los Angeles, which offers cutting-edge dance training in a positive self-esteem building environment for kids and teens ages 3-18. (www.inspire-dancestudio.com) . Additionally, she’s working on co-authoring the book Train Your Brain For Happiness with Train Your Brain author, Corinne Gediman, who has published 6 other Train Your Brain books. However, her most proud accolade is being a brand new mom to her magical daughter, Vivia Bliss, and her fur-baby (dog), Sky Rue.
Due to the powerful work of life coaching, Julie’s life is now infused with a freedom and balance that enriches each day and nourishes her soul in such profound ways. She’s highly motivated and dedicated to supporting her clients in empowering themselves to create their Most INSPIRED Life. She would love the opportunity to partner with YOU!

Miranda Wise, CPO, TICC Wisconsin, USA
Miranda is a childhood trauma survivor diagnosed with ADHD. For over a decade, she’s been on an inner work journey and working as a professional organizer. As an organizer, she helps multi-passionate clients reclaim the spaces they live and work in, as well as mange their time, tasks & projects with more intention and peace. She also delivers productivity presentations and workshops for businesses and schools.
Her passion for creating organizing & productivity systems comes from the desire to support others in getting to what matters most with more ease and less overwhelm. After years of this work, she saw over and over that having clarity around your priorities and meeting yourself where you are is required for those systems to provide the desired results. That, along with her own trauma healing work, inspired Miranda to pivot the focus of her work towards trauma-informed coaching and no longer offer in-person organizing.
Though ADHD makes prioritizing challenging in some specific ways, she’s learned through her own journey that having more clarity & peace around your authentic self and values brings deep clarity & peace around your priorities on a daily, micro level. Yet trauma from childhood can make it surprisingly hard to recognize or connect with our authentic selves. Miranda believes that when we deeply know, and are able to show love to, all parts of ourselves, we can make conscious choices from that place to create the life we really want.
Miranda’s services include life coaching, virtual organizing, presenting and conducting workshops for groups, and Chinese astrology birth chart (BaZi – pillars of destiny) readings. She enjoys making music, playing board games, and being in nature with her husband, daughter, and fluffy white dog.
Her credentials include:
- Certified Professional Organizer® (CPO) through the Board of Certification for
- Trauma-Informed Certified Coach (TICC) through Moving the Human Spirit
- Three Level 1 Certificates from the Institute for Challenging Disorganization:
Basic ADD Issues, Chronic Disorganization, and Student Needs & Learning Styles
- BFA in Advertising from Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA

Emma Maslin, TICC Bucks, United Kingdom
Emma is a financial coach and mentor in the UK and Founder of the multi-award-winning personal finance education website The Money Whisperer.
Emma believes financial health and wellbeing aren't a luxury just for the wealthy; it's a basic need for all of us. The thing is, 80% of feeling good about your financial situation is in the emotional relationship you have with money, and only 20% relates to having the practical know-how around how to manage it. Crucially, very few of us have healthy beliefs around money communicated to us in our formative years, which impacts our relationship with money as adults. We still live in a world where money is a dirty subject!
Childhood traumas - including the death of a parent, parental divorce, loss of a parent's job - were recurring themes that kept showing up with Emma's clients. This prompted her to train as a trauma-informed coach to serve her clients better and facilitate breaking the trans-generational patterns of unwanted money behaviors.
She is passionate about empowering people to take control of their financial situation by helping them master the two symbiotic components of money; the emotional and the practical. She equips them with a deep understanding of their unique relationship with money and teaches them practical guidance and tools to effectively manage and grow their money.
Emma holds the following accreditations:
● Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Practitioner
● TimeLine Therapy™ Practitioner
● Trauma-Informed Certified Coach (TICC)
● Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) Practitioner
● Sacred Money Archetypes™ Coach

Marisa Delizo, TICC California, USA
Marisa is a trauma-informed life coach with a mission to empower survivors of covert childhood abuse to reclaim their birthright of self-love and compassion. From her own experience with depression, suicidality, and self-healing, Marisa is passionate about mental health and inner child healing, reparenting, and inner critic/perfectionism work. She deeply understands the impact covert abuse (emotional and mental abuse) can have on one’s perceived self-esteem, self-worth, and self-talk and how these things can fuel an overachieving perfectionist mindset. As an inner dialogue coach, Marisa helps her clients shift from hyper self-criticism to an abundance of self-compassion, which becomes compassion for the external world and ripples into a sense of inner peace.
In October of 2019, Marisa started an Instagram page @littlebent_notbroken with the sole purpose of helping at least one person feel seen and heard and less alone. She had no idea it would explode into the community it is today nor become the hub of her coaching business. After suffering major burnout and reconciling her relationship between her sense of worth and work, Marisa realized she COULD follow her dreams of making a positive impact in the world and decided to make a career pivot toward life coaching. She received her Trauma-Informed Coaching Certification through Moving the Human Spirit in April 2021 and is currently working toward her ACC ICF accreditation.
She is currently taking on clients for monthly containers or on a per-session basis.
