Jennifer Kindera. It’s Not, Why Me? It’s What Now?
Jennifer Kindera is a complex trauma survivor who has been traveling the path of recovery for over 25 years.
As a Certified Advanced Trauma Recovery Coach, she works one-on-one and in a group setting with survivors of physical, emotional and sexual abuse. Offering an honest, inclusive and compassionate space for the unfolding of her client’s life journey, she focuses on some of the bi-products of trauma: shame, codependency, and addiction.

Trauma may be a fact of life, but it doesn’t have to be a life sentence. Somatic Experiencing is a psychobiological method of addressing clients’ physical and emotional trauma conditions, and helps to give voice to their experiences without a need for them to retell the story.
SE was founded by Dr. Peter Levine, author of the bestseller Waking the Tiger, who developed Somatic Experiencing based on explorations of how animals deal with threat, nervous system overwhelm, and traumatic experiences on a daily basis. SE focuses on regulation of the nervous system and offers the opportunity to engage, complete, and resolve the body’s instinctual responses to traumatic experiences.

Jennifer’s writings can be found on Medium, most often curated under the Mental Health category, and she also serves as the Director of Innovative Client Solutions and is a mentor to current students at the International Association of Trauma Recovery Coaching.
Jennifer practices with gentle guidance to help her clients identify the core beliefs trauma taught them, and the repetitive patterns which are holding them back from being the best version of themselves. Jennifer teaches her clients healthy coping skills and tools to stabilize their lives in the short term, and to evolve from that new space, longer-term. She helps her clients increase awareness and make space for growth and healing by integrating psychoeducation, the neuroscience of trauma, somatic recognition and trigger tools all of which help to manage complex trauma symptoms.
