Laura Coleman, PhD, BCC, NCC, CCMHC
Dr. Laura Bradford Coleman is a Board Certified Coach specializing in helping people master their traumas. She works in her private practice, Trauma Wellness Coaching, with individuals, couples, adults, children, families, and organizations.
She has combined her personal experiences with abuse and trauma with over 50 years of work in the field in many different roles. The differences helped her develop a well-rounded approach to work with traumatized adults, couples, families, and children.
In the 1990s, she created a treatment program for people who had experienced trauma. All came from referrals from multiple local organizations that offer services to trauma survivors. During that time, she also gave numerous presentations and training to local organizations on many aspects of living with a history of trauma.
She maintains that she is a perpetual student who loves learning. She has earned four college and graduate degrees: B.A. in Sociology and Education, M.Ed. in Special Education, M.A. in Psychology, and Ph.D. in Psychology. Her coach training at the Institute of Life Coach Training and subsequent Board Certification added to her understanding of work with trauma. That’s when she understood that much of what she had offered in her original classes was suitable for coaching.
She’s a wife, mother, grandmother, sister, cousin, friend, and life coach. She enjoys her life in the country with her husband, kitty, and the horses out in her backyard. Science fiction and urban fantasy novels fascinate her. And she loves music, especially oldies from the 1960s and ’70s.
