Why it Matters to Be Trauma-Informed in Business, Leadership, Education & More...


More than ever before, we as a society are beginning to understand not only the impacts of trauma, but also how pervasive it actually really is. We see it everywhere. In the workplace, in our classrooms, on social media, and even in our own homes. On a collective level, we are all currently being impacted by trauma due to our current social and political climate, which in turn has been compounded by the unforeseen ramifications of a global pandemic. Issues related to mental health, suicide, addiction, divorce/separation and violence are all on the rise. Naturally, you can expect these challenges to show up in our everyday lives as we interface with the world around us. Becoming trauma-informed allows you to bring awareness, compassion and a unique skill-set into your everyday experiences in the efforts to reduce harm and facilitate a space for connection and healing—-something we could all benefit from. Trauma-informed leadership ensures an interpersonal landscape of safety so that opportunities for growth and healing become available at all levels. When people feel safe, connected and hopeful, change becomes possible.

Meet Your Trainer,

Star Rose Bond, LCSW


I did not become an expert in my field specializing in trauma with a successful practice simply by textbooks alone.

My childhood was saturated with adversity and trauma (which ultimately became my gifts). I saw and experienced it all: poverty, addiction, sexual abuse, single parenthood, domestic violence, chronic illness, the whole she-bang.

When I was 12, I was committed into my first mental institution and by age 14, I was facing incarceration for the first of many times. Throughout my entire adolescence into early adulthood, I was shuffled through the system, labeled and medicated. On top of all that, Lymes disease was simultaneously & unknowingly wreaking havoc on my health.

So, if you feel like you’ve been through some crazy stuff– welcome, you’re in good company.

I spent the first half of my life believing that I was broken, crazy and destined for a life of hardship — just to spend the second half of it healing, reclaiming and owning my worth and wisdom.

For the past 20 years, I have committed myself to a path of healing like never before.

I went from being a product of the system and a high school drop-out to graduating from an Ivy League University top of my class and spending the last 12 years in the field as a master’s level social worker working with underserved communities from around the globe.

My career has led me to develop an obsession with neuro-psychology and the incredible connection between science and the sacred and how that relates to human behavior. I am living proof of what it means to overcome trauma and even against all odds, I discovered healing and a life I never thought possible.

In my journey back to self, I was gifted with the knowledge and experience of now being able to help facilitate that process for others.

I am fiercely passionate about helping people break-free from trauma and overcome the limitations holding them back from creating their own personal legacy.

I live in the Sierra foothills of Northern California where I run my private practice out of my home/mini farm and work as the trauma-informed specialist at a local treatment center for low-income families. When I am not working as a therapist + coach – you can catch me being a rebel hearted, loud-mouth New Yorker who loves hip hop, bougie hotels in exotic places, psychedelics, books and dismantling the patriarchy. If you want a non-judgemental kick in the butt to break you out of your BS stories – I’m your woman.
