Meet Kishna Celce of Balancing Life & Kids

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kishna Celce.

Hi Kishna, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I was in an abusive relationship for the better part of four years. When I finally made the decision to leave, I was stuck with all of the mental and emotional trauma that the relationship left me with. When I finally realized that it was abusive and that I needed help, I did all that I could do in terms of finding counselors, therapists, and social workers to help me. Unfortunately, they were unable to; I had to learn how to do it on my own. So that’s exactly what I did.

After going through that healing journey, I realized that there were other people who need that same type of help and they may very well be struggling to find it. It was that thought, that realization, that pushed me into becoming a trauma specialist.

As a trauma specialist, I work with women between the ages of 30-45 who have overcome an abusive and/or traumatic experience and are struggling to quiet the negative voices in their head that is keeping them from loving themselves. Together, we learn how to let go of the pain and hurt that they are holding on to, we learn how to forgive ourselves for the part that we played in the circumstance, and we learn how to replace the voices with OUR positive loving one.

Alright, 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?
It has been a bumpy road – finding clients who are ready to work on becoming the best versions of themselves has been tricky. Once people realize how much internal work it actually takes, they start to shut down and stop attending their sessions. But the ones who stick it out and make it through are able to fall in love with themselves and find amazing partners, friends, and moments with themselves.

We’ve been impressed with Balancing Life & Kids, Inc., but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
