Hello, I'm Tommy, Trauma Recovery Coach & Academic Coach.
How may I assist you?
My wife and I raised three adopted children who came from abusive families and survived abusive relationships as adults. With my children I experienced attempted suicide, PTSD, bipolar disorder, depression, ADD-ADHD, medications, side effects, misdiagnosis, and residential treatment.
For twenty-five years as a minister and pastor in churches and fifteen years as a special education teacher I have supported adults and teenagers who have come out of physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, insest, rape, bullying, abusive relationships, and attempted suicide.
I was a special education teacher in Washington state for fifteen years working with modified, resource room, behavior disorder, life skills, and medically fragile primarily at the high school level. I served on campus and district committees, as department lead, and freshman class advisor. I retain my teaching certificate with Washington state.
My last class was for medically fragile students. Everyday I faced the possibility of a student not recovering from a seizure. There were times it was close. One day a student went home and never returned. A week later I attended her memorial service.
I have been through four major school incidents at three different schools. The most severe by far was Friday, October 24, 2014 when Marysville-Pilchuck High School was the site of a mass murder and suicide - 4 students were murdered, 1 critically wounded, and the shooter committed suicide. I was the first classroom law enforcement entered and escorted out.
I am now a PTSD survivor. Through exploring my PTSD, I discovered I have lived most of my life with undiagnosed depression.
I understand personal and mass trauma. I have lived and survived both.
