Radio Show

In addition to one-on-one coaching (online or in person), I inform listeners about recovery on my weekly radio broadcast that airs on WHRT (HIS Radio Talk91.9 and 89.7, a contemporary Christian radio station in Greenville, SC. My show airs

Friday at 11:30 AM and 11:30 PM
Saturday at 12 Noon

Sunday at 12 AM.


Many trauma survivors will not go see a therapist or psychiatrist so my motto is "bringing recovery to you." I do this by bringing my listeners  research-based information on a variety of recovery topics such as healing from trauma, healing mother wounds, domestic violence, setting healthy boundaries and more.

I sat in my chair staring feelings of sheer exhaustion mentally, emotionally, physically. Suffering from the blows of life challenges that I was facing. I felt hopeless. My confidence was shattered, and my future looked bleak. I desperately needed a voice of wisdom and guidance. God divinely put in my path one day a particular broadcast Pills and Skills Recovery hosted by Dr. Chris Maria. I felt immediately the reassurance in her spirit and voice as a woman who could relate to individuals who had been wounded by life. I set up a 45 min consultation. It has been one of the best decisions I ever made. The coaching sessions that we have had, I see myself as a more self -confident person. As well, I feel more emotionally stable with the new life skills I'm learning and that we discuss and practice. I'm totally on the road of recovery, with a new beginning. A life that is now thriving with a new outlook on a brighter future.

Prior to meeting Dr. Chris I did not know there was a name for what plagued my thoughts and actions, my life period. I listened to her podcasts on the Emotionally Absent Mother and it shifted my perception of myself and helped me to realize that I could heal and I can change. My first conversation with Dr. Chris was literally life changing. I sincerely look forward to the healing and coaching process and what that will look like for my future and how it will change the generations in my family to come.

Coaching Services

I help trauma survivors heal and recover from childhood trauma (violence, abuse and neglect).  I offer one-on-one coaching online and in person. In our coaching sessions, I help you understand what childhood trauma is, how it changes the body, and how it leads to a host of PTSD symptoms and trauma related disorders like anxiety and depression.


I help you identify triggers, replace unhealthy behaviors with new ways of being, change negative unhelpful thought patterns, and more. All of which help them heal and recover from trauma.
