Ms. Lockey Maisonneuve is a Recovery Coach, yoga guide, author, speaker, and advocate for those suffering from trauma. She facilitates group counseling sessions providing yoga and mindfulness to our patients. After years of hearing “you have to let it go”, “forgive”, and “move on”, Lockey Maisonneuve recognized that it just wasn’t in her DNA to just release the pain of her past. A childhood scarred by sex trafficking, abuse, alcoholism, and abandonment couldn’t be erased with sunnier thoughts; if anything, the push toward making peace left her feeling angrier than ever. For Lockey, healing a lifetime of trauma came through a prescription of vulnerability, recognition, validation, and ownership. After years of talk therapy, hypnotherapy, yoga, tapping, journaling, guided meditation, and energy work, Lockey finally opened up an inner dialogue and began to dismantle the disquieting conversations inside her head and heart. In this talk, Lockey will open up about her trauma and what it took to triumph over everything that almost destroyed her. She’ll share her truths and her toolbox for discovering a sense of self-empowerment through survival.
“They didn’t break me. I don’t believe people are broken. I just believe every person has a really interesting story, and they get to decide what to do with it.”
