Caught In The Negative Interactions Loop

A negative interactional experience is any type of occasion in life that creates a danger to our mental, emotional or physical wellbeing or events than can place yours or the lives of others in danger. Because of this, an individual can  experience a high degree of psychological, emotional, and physical distress that briefly interrupts our capacity to go about our daily tasks in everyday life. 

Recovery from these interactions is possible! 

Negative interactions and trauma leave individuals, families and communities disjointed, shamed, and torn. The rebuilding can take a toll on its members as they are unsure of the direction to proceed in.

You do not have to go at it alone.

Recovery from these experiences involves the ability to successfully live in the present without being overwhelmed by thoughts and feelings from the past.

A journey of recovery  is a very individual process. There are many factors that go into your unique journey which include your beliefs, the level of coping and resiliency skills you have, if you have relationships with supportive people and your overall level of psychological functioning before and after the experience.

Waling this path is not just "getting over it!"

I offer a variety of services to help you move past the challenges that these experiences have presented in your life. I will help you identify your personal and familial patterns, strengths, and abilities in support of your personal transformation. Contact me to see how I can help you develop different perspectives and achieve the life of your choosing that is not limited by the effects of your negative interactional experiences.

The F.I.S.T. Model An Interactional Transformation Model

Dr. Jai, a trauma survivor developed this model to be individualistic, comprehensive and safe.

Her Solution-based model, The Familial Interactional Systemic Transformation (F.I.S.T.) Model focuses on creating safety and support through reducing overwhelm, collaboratively accessing and developing coping and resiliency strategies, reducing limiting beliefs, forming a reconnection with oneself and relationships with others, the creation of boundaries, and reduction and ultimately elimination of toxic shame and/or guilt.


This is individual or being applied to families that have suffered acknowledged life changing experiences or trauma, is set up for you to see changes immediately.

The 2nd phase of The F.I.S.T. Model focuses on going deeper into your experience responses or trauma response or familial patterns that continue to present themselves in our current situations. During this phase you will be able to put words and emotions to what has happened and increase your understanding of the effects to take steps to "see" it didn't start with you and you are not to blame for what happened to you. During this phase you can begin to develop a different perspective of yourself, needs, wants and goals. 

The 3rd and final phase of The F.I.S.T. Model focuses on creation. It is here that my clients develop a new sense of self and a future that is

not trauma focused or overshadowed by their experiences or trauma. During this phase it is very common for clients to redefine themselves through meaningful relationships, finding their purpose and passion and maintaining themselves as a priority in their lives.

At this point, clients have created a life where their experiences, interactions or trauma do not define them.

Clients are empowered, resilient, have better coping skills and are self-determined. They also have an increased circle of capacity as their interactions and experiences no longer elicit the response they used to. It is important to note that your transformation will not be determined by the total  absence of  thoughts or feelings about the traumatic experience, but your ability to live with it in a way that it isn’t in control of your life.

You must be gentle, patient and compassionate with yourself as you move through this healing process.

Your Source For Adolescent and Family Interactional Support

Do you ever feel that you're not good enough, smart enough or continue to find yourself in the same type of relationships? I DID! Hourly, Daily, Monthly and Yearly. Until I addressed the core to it all: the way I was being interacted with, expectations made upon me and experienced trauma. I wasn't a bad person. It's just I had bad things happen and never addressed them because "I had to be strong" and I had to "plow through" and "suck it up."

Use my experience as an example and know that YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PLOW THROUGH, ADDRESS IT ALONE OR SUCK IT UP!

It takes some work, but in the end it is worth it. You don't have to limit yourself any longer. Join one of my transformational programs, enroll in a certification program or become a member of the TRCCC Network for community, resources, events and interactions that are healthy. Book an interest call and see what happens.
