Brandi Powell and Carla Eunice with Village of the Valley
Village of the Valley is 501(c)(3) nonprofit in Phoenix, Arizona helping women who’ve experienced abuse, heal and grow from the effects left behind.
Brandi Powell has been a Transformational Life Coach since 2013 receiving her certification from Southwest Institute of Healing Arts.
Her primary focus has been working with women who have experienced trauma and abuse.
In 2017, she founded Village of the Valley in order to fill a gap in social services and create larger access to mental health wellness.
Carla Eunice has been a Transformational Life Coach with Village of the Valley (VOTV) since 2020. Carla supports women in their healing journey through one-on-one life coaching and co-facilitating Coaching from the Couch workshops.
She has served on the VOTV Board of Directors, but recently stepped down to focus on her passion for working with the ladies. Prior to becoming a life coach, Carla was a 2019 graduate of the VOTV program. After experiencing such an incredible transformation, she knew she had to give back to the organization.
Carla believes unhealed trauma and abuse surface in destructive ways. The only way to heal from abuse and trauma is by dissecting the emotional wounds, cleansing them, and reconstructing them in a way that beneficially serves us.
Carla says that walking beside women as they heal can be emotionally difficult, but the rewards outweigh the heaviness when she witnesses the transformational change her clients experience.
“In a perfect world, there wouldn’t be a need for the work that VOTV does, but this world isn’t perfect. Trauma is part of the human experience; but so is courage. And so is healing. It takes courage to heal. So be courageous in the pursuit of you!”
