Dawn Taylor welcomes Kimberley Valerie to the show to explore how early life trauma created Kimberley’s addiction to over-achieving. Dawn and Kimberley discuss the events, feelings, and deep denial that put Kimberley in a perfect storm of doing too much all the time as a way of coping.

 

Kimberley’s childhood was filled with siblings she was parted from, a frequently absentee mom, physical violence, and extreme poverty. After she was beaten and placed in foster care, she received praise for good grades from the social worker who had helped her. She describes that moment as her first hit. It led to her chosen drug of achievement, recognition, over-work, and accolades.

 

Kimberley and Dawn explore all the ways in which trauma leaves a lasting imprint on someone’s life. Kimberley shares her particular insight into how the addiction to always be going, achieving, earning, creating, and working can be just as toxic and destructive as drug or alcohol addiction. And she has advice for how to spot the same denial-based masking and trauma responses from forming in your own life.

I felt like my life had been squandered a little bit in the season of having babies and people needing me. But after working with Dawn, I realize I have the potential for greatness. It was the first time in my life that I realized I actually have the potential to do amazing things.

I had been in therapy since I was 16, over 20 years of going to therapy before I met Dawn. But in 14-15 months of working with her, my brain has essentially rewired itself. How I view my friends, myself, and God has changed. But you have to buy in, and be willing to work through the tough stuff to get to the other side.

I Get It - 

Life is Hard!

Like many of my clients, I’ve also felt ugly, useless, and forgotten.

I’ve gone through depression, molestation, and a brain aneurysm. 

It took me years to understand what I had gone through and how to use my past to support others in conquering their fears and self talk.

That’s why I’ve condensed what I’ve learned into strategies to help you overcome your own stuff efficiently. 

With multiple different certificates, training courses, and a whole lot of courage and stubbornness, I decided that if I could heal myself I could help others heal too.
