Jabrita Shelton: I Won’t Apologize for Purpose

Have you truly healed from past trauma?

Any trauma that we experience in life is attached to both our mental health and our physical health. Whether personal, family related, physical, sexual, or childhood trauma, we tend to internalize and carry trauma in our body years before triggers are ever revealed.

So many of us are called to do great things, but trauma and fear of judgement stops us from pursuing purpose or even stepping out in faith. We have the power to walk ourselves through healing, but first we have to let go of the madness that keeps our minds imprisoned.

To close out an amazing week of highlighting previous clients from my signature program, Purpose To Platform, today’s guest has curated a method to end the madness of trauma and push people into true health and healing.

Jabrita Shelton is a wife, mother, Published Author, Speaker, and Transformational Coach with 10 years as a Trauma Informed Care Professional. From childhood trauma, to the mental break that drove her to a psych ward, Jabrita chose to finally let go of the weight attached to being the “strong black woman”.

After 14 years of intentional root work around healing and understanding her own personal journey, Jabrita has been able to transform what once was a daunting story into one so triumphant you’d have to see it to believe it. Jabrita Shelton is the CEO of Jabrita Shelton & Co. and the Chief Consultant of The Madness Method and Mind Your Madness Experience
