Coach Sylvia, CPC, ELI-MP, APSATS-C
Coach Sylvia began her coaching journey four years ago after discovering her husband’s sex addiction, and consequently his Dissociative Personality Disorder, Narcissistic Personality Disorder, PTSD, and ADHD. In the midst of the utter devastation, debilitating depression, suicidal ideation, confusion and isolation, she found her purpose, which was to help other women and men in the same situation. She helps women navigate the process of healing through finding appropriate resources, highly trained therapists, connecting, crying, processing, and laughing to heal from the pain of betrayal trauma.
Sylvia has a BA in Human Development & Behavior, and a degree in Legal Studies. She received her coaching certification (CPC) and hold another certification as an ELI-MP (Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner) through the Institute of Professional Excellence in Coaching (IPEC) with a specialty in relationship coaching and partner recovery. She also completed the Association of Partners of Sex Addicts Trauma Specialists (APSATS) Multidimensional Partner Trauma Model training. She is currently working toward the Sex Addiction Training Module, and the Intimacy Anorexia Training Module with AASAT.
She is bilingual, fluent in Spanish at a professional level (speak, read, write).
Coach Sylvia is very compassionate and empathic with clients; however, she’s the no-nonsense type. She’ll hold your hand, and kick your butt in the process (with love:). If you’re tired of the pain, the sleepless nights, the intrusive thoughts/images, living in fear, feeling depressed and stuck, let’s get to work.
