Workshop Leader
Angela Stevens, COTA, CST

Angela truly walks her talk as a Healing from the Core Certified Instructor as she guides others through this deeply transformative process. Drawing from her personal healing journey of recovery from PTSD, Angela has refined her experience to provide an expertise that touches everyone. Angela has a way of connecting with her students through real life experiences that both clarify concepts and enhance the student’s own healing process. She brings laughter, movement and her experience as an OTA to create a rich and meaningful environment for the entire group.

Angela believes in the power of the human spirit to create a world-wide connection of love and compassion. In her own words, "My goal as an Instructor is to share the profound and powerful course principles and techniques that support creating this healthy connection."

When she is not teaching, Angela maintains a private practice integrating skills from her occupational therapy and sensory integration background, CranioSacral and SomatoEmotional Release therapy, Lymph Drainage and Reiki. Her practice includes all ages. Formerly a pediatric occupational therapist, she worked extensively with a wide range of pediatric diagnoses, primarily autism. Having raised four children of her own, she has developed a deep and compassionate understanding of the tenderness in a child's heart. She provides a strong, grounded, steady therapeutic presence that creates a safe environment for her students and clients to connect with their deepest healing potential.

"Angela is an excellent teacher who shares her heart and soul so openly and generously. In doing so, she creates an environment that is nurturing and safe, where each of us feel comfortable to share our hearts as well. What a gift!”
