Carrie began helping other parents through their own grief and trauma resulting from parenting traumatized children, through Carrie O’Toole Ministries in 2012. She found that some people make the decision to continue parenting. Some place their child/ren in residential treatment facilities, or boarding schools. Some choose to place their child with another family. Either way, these parents suffer. Carrie walks through these difficult decisions, and the emotions that follow, with her clients.
In 2021, Carrie brought on 2 more coaches to help reach more struggling families with hope and healing. Aimee and Jen bring even more experience, expertise, and energy to the ministry. They lead several on-line groups, write blogs, and continue in their education. Aimee is pursuing an Ed.D. in Traumatology, and Jen is pursuing her licensure.
