Tips For Recognizing Trauma In Your Coaching Clients 

Our Certified Practitioners

Taryn Moore  is an educator, author and a Personal Empowerment Coach. She brings over 25 years of education, employee development and coaching to her Gentle Trauma Release © practice after having worked with teams of 1-300 in many different capacities.  She holds a degree in Elementary and Special Education with a minor in Psychology.    

Taryn’s most passionate projects are always centered around the empowerment of women.  She quickly learned that many times, trauma is at the root of what holds women back.  Taryn’s style centers around building a relationship of trust, creating a safe space where laughter, tears, and stories of both success and sorrow are easily shared.  Since the death of her husband Jim, and working through grief herself, she finds great comfort in helping others move through grief, disappointment, fear, change and emotional upheaval. 

Taryn Moore is the founder of the Barefoot Woman Academy offering personal coaching and powerful online programs and trainings to women looking to embody their most empowered Self.

However, Charlene’s heart has always focused on ‘healing’ others and offering them ways to empower and grow themselves.  She has mastered the alternative healing modalities of Reiki, Applied Kinesiology (One Brain ©) and is a highly skilled Oracle Cards guide. Charlene now looks forward to assisting and facilitating others with the Gentle Trauma Release Method © by creating a safe space to heal and release their traumas, as well as to spread their beautiful, dynamic wings and fly!
