Today we’d like to introduce you to Coco McKenzi.
Coco, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
As a rape survivor, I stand to say that living your most radiant and fulfilling life after the assault is possible. My life was in a state of constant torture after the assault.
From living with the suffocating effects of PTSD and being hospitalized for stress-induced hemorrhaging, my journey back to wholeness led me around the world.
For years I studied different therapies, both alternative and ancient, and because of their undeniable impact, I am now solely dedicated to helping people live legendary lives after sexual abuse.
My work began not because I wanted a business but because my life depended on it. After the rape, I felt like the walking dead which led me to the crossroads of a lifetime.
Come hell or high water, I was going to heal. On my path, I discovered invaluable truths. Yet, they were always hidden beneath my greatest fears.
Some of these truths were:
1. To not fear pain, but to view it through the lens of my deepest desires being masked by the fear.
2. That it takes the same amount of energy to avoid pain as it does to transform it.
The miraculous outcome of living in bravery transformed my tormentors into treasures, unlocked my true power and strengthened my relationship to my body… I believe this is possible for you.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
You cannot change what you refuse to confront. I would be lying if I said that healing from sexual assault was without its challenges. By nature, trauma separates you from reality.
Trauma can carry paralyzing flashbacks allowing shame and uncertainty to take over. If left unaddressed, trauma can become your most devastating companion. It is for this very reason, we must heal. Sacrifice is not your only option.
Loving your life post-sexual abuse is possible. I believe you are your greatest healer, and while the bravery required can feel intimidating at first, the results are remarkably impactful and profoundly liberating.
For every seed of bravery planted, the flower of change blooms. Living a happy, connected, safe, and sexy life after the assault can be yours, and I can help.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about The McKenzi Method – what should we know?
After spending several disheartening years in talk therapy, I realized that if trauma affects people mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually, sexually and cellularly then so must the healing.
The McKenzi Method is the healing you have wanted, and thought might never be possible. Meshing countless teachings and proven methodologies, I am honored to specialize in transforming trauma into treasure.
Through talk therapy, ancient bodywork, guided meditations, breathwork, and sexuality practices you will reconnect to your true self.
