My mission is to empower successful, powerful women like you to find trust again after being hurt by people close to you, and have it all –  including love.


Founder | Relationship and Trauma Coach

Trust After Trauma was founded by Christina Mettert in 2018, and is based on 25 years in the field of psychology that she developed over the past 12 years in her private practice. Christina has helped thousands of women feel more connected to their bodies and to the people they love but felt distant from.

Christina Mettert is an expert in helping people use past trauma to transform it into presence. She teaches people how to take past hurts and use them as wisdom and navigation tools in relating and walking through life.

Christina believes that once you feel strong and grounded in who you are and what you truly need (especially the secret needs you don’t share with anyone) you can begin to open and be more vulnerable with others. This is our greatest power and place to build deep intimacy and connection with people.
