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.

Ramona Kossowan  deeply understands the struggle with body image, self esteem, sabotage and just feeling stuck in life having overcome those issues herself. Her focus was always to uncover the root cause of a problem in order to support her clients the best.  Today, as a certified Empowerment Coach (SWAT Institute), fitness professional (AFLCA) and natural health enthusiast, she does precisely that.

Ramona’s private practice is built on the vision of igniting woman’s inner passion for herself, her body and her life.

Pat  Burrows  decided to fulfill her passion for being of service to others and healing others after a fruitful career as a Nurse, CFO and Administrator. While working with women as a Women’s Empowerment Coach, she realized that the “missing piece” of her coaching practice was the ability to help the client release traumatic memories and emotions. The Gentle Trauma Release Method© has become the answer to her prayers. As a certified Gentle Trauma Release© Practitioner, Pat can now assist others to fully empower themselves.

Pat has developed a strong interest in serving the healing community (doctors, nurses and other health practitioners), in addition to their patients and family members, many whom have been deeply affected by the traumas of isolation, illness, incapacitation, and even death in some cases. They have been working hard to care for their patients, but they often have been without access to reliable treatment protocols, procedures or medications. 

Pat’s primary mission is to provide Gentle Trauma Release to anyone who is suffering from symptoms of trauma in their life, both past and present.  At 68 years young, Pat believes that her own life challenges and her prior training, combined with her compassion, empathy and intuition, give her a much broader perspective and enable her to bring an exceptional level of healing to her clients. Pat is able to offer her clients the tools necessary to re-establish a sense of wellbeing, safety, harmony and self-empowerment. Pat is also a certified Oracle Guide and Tarot Adviser.
