"I want to express our extreme and profound gratitude for Tessa’s amazing work with our organization over the years. Tessa came to us as a trauma trainer recommended by the AZ ACEs Consortium and has become so much more to our organization. We are lucky to call her a colleague and friend. Tessa has shared with our members on many occasions an in depth understanding of human psyche and how that is impacted by developmental trauma and can lead to issues for young people later in life. She has also taught us the power of self-care and self-nurturing as a way to honor ourselves and put our needs first in a world that asks so very much from each of us as caring adults. Tessa has graciously shared her gifts with us, and we are better for it. Thank you, Tessa, for the amazing work you do. We are truly blessed to know you."
DIRECTOR OF STUDENT AND FAMILY SUPPORT SERVICES
"Tessa does an amazing job of providing engaging content that is relevant, practical, and timely. And then goes on to provide effective leadership tools and strategies that are easy to apply right away. We greatly enjoyed the time she spent with us. We left feeling energized, motivated, and inspired."
"Tessa Brock is an AMAZING speaker! She shares her journey and story from the heart. She has so much knowledge, compassion, and empathy to share with others. Her soft spoken,yet passionate approach is mesmerizing. It's as if she is speaking to you directly, yet there could be hundreds of others in the room. As a Director in a school district we brought Tessa in to train as many of our staff members (support, certified, exempt, administrators, senior staff) as possible over the years. Our staff have learned so many important lessons and skills from Tessa. The knowledge they have gained has helped to better relate to students, families, and each other. No matter how many times I attend a training I always walk away learning something new. I highly recommend all to attend her trainings. She is such an inspiration!"
