Trauma Informed Energy Medicine

+ Radical Life Coaching =

A Match Made in Heaven

If you want to:


Stop playing small and discover your full, unencumbered potential


Make a bigger impact in this world without totally burning out


Discover the gift of being an empath and use it to your advantage in your work with others 

And the really special sauce?!


Ending your work day full of clients feeling filled up and energized – Imagine that!

Then you don’t really want to go through any ordinary coach training…

You want something radical!

You want something life changing! 

 You want something extraordinary!

You want something that will thrill you to the stars and beyond! 

And we want to give you a training that is all of that, and more!


And the cherry on the top – you can take it again, and again, and again for free! 

This isn’t your typical coaching certification.

It’s the one that’s going to wake you up, challenge your reality, inspire you, and elevate your consciousness to a whole new level – and your client’s too!

We don’t mess around. 

This is an all inclusive energy medicine approach to coaching – ​it’s love infused, it’s faith driven, and it takes into account the whole shebang of what it means to be alive with an aim to listen to what the soul is saying in every moment. 

Yea, we know, it’s a lot!

In simple terms – it FEELS, senses and looks at all aspects of what makes us, us – like our body, our thoughts and emotions, the experiences we’ve had, the shit we’ve inherited, and the health issues we carry, and helps to radically shift the energy of these things so healing can happen naturally.


The LaChiara Method is…

a uniquely badass,

soul activating,

deeply empowering


coaching approach that combines the expertise of two seasoned visionaries in the field who happen to be best friends: Gabrielli LaChiara, a former social worker and breast cancer survivor, who founded the LaChiara Method out of a frustration with the new age healing industry, and Chloë Faith Urban, a sexual abuse survivor with a history of chronic pain and illness, who’s life was forever changed by the LaChiara Method so she’s dedicated her life to teaching others what she learned.

We’ve created this in depth training Gabrielli wished she had when she started out – one that brings everything together in a holistic way and bashes open the oppressive boxes that much of the healing arts world inadvertently perpetuates.

During what has been quite a challenging time in our communities and in the world, the LaChiara Method Radical Life Coach Training has been grounding and imperative! Gabrielli and Chloë not only gently guided us through the potent curriculum, they held us so beautifully and brilliantly throughout the entire process. They modeled each of the program’s core values- Trauma Informed, Oppression Aware, Faith Driven, Love Infused (my personal favorite), and Somatically Attuned- with such integrity! As a BIPOC participant, I felt seen and uplifted by our entire community of healers, who all showed up with our whole hearts! It has been life-enhancing for me in every way.”

- Angélica C.

I’ve studied with Gabrielli in the past, so I was so delighted to hear about the creation of this life coach training. I learned so much from this experience, both in terms of my own healing journey, and how to work with clients. Gabrielli and Chloë are dynamic duo! They are so engaging, caring, responsive, and brilliant educators, flexible and supportive of different learning styles. As a social justice educator, I so appreciated the program’s focus on being oppression aware and trauma informed, and Gabrielli and Chloe’s deep work, wisdom, integrity and humility around this topic. I was astounded by how much healing could happen over Zoom, and loved getting to be a part of the LaChiara community. It is magic!

I highly (HIGHLY) recommend this program!”

- Dr. Molly Keehn

“I’m never too old to learn.  I have known and studied with Gabrielli and Chloe for many years and eagerly signed up for the first and second cohorts of Radical Life Coaching.  Being with this community of healers is in itself an amazing healing journey.  I have always loved shared leadership and Gabrielli and Chloe master their roles with so much love and respect for each other and for all the participants.  They give generously of their time, wisdom, and beings.  I learn from them and from everyone in the community.  It’s a blessing to be part of this beautiful work — and to use what I learn to help myself and others.

- Blaze Ardman, 81, Radical Life Coach, Teacher of Japanese Psychology, Grief Witness

We teach an extensive, carefully curated, and comprehensive energy medicine toolbox that you can go out in the world with and use right away…  

These tools are simple,
they are powerful,
and they really freaking work.


In this training you'll learn how to:

  • to rewire those dreaded ol’ patterns that have people stuck – like looping thoughts, feelings that never seem to change, and those darn habitual behaviors everyone is sick of!


  • to unlock stuck and seemingly unworkable challenges with clear, easy to use tools that actually work.


  • how being nice isn’t what we’re going for in a session, and why this might actually hold you back.


  • that compassionately challenging your clients could be exactly what they’ve been missing – and how to do this in a way that feels full of love and integrity!


  • how understanding the layers of embodiment will make you 10x more effective with your clients (and yourself!)


  • how holding faith for someone when they’ve given up can be one of the most powerful techniques you have at your disposal – and how to do it without being attached to an outcome!


  • to listen to your clients body – ‘cause bodies have more information than you could ever imagine!


  • that putting up energetic bubbles of protection around you is a drain to your energy and what you can do instead that actually works!


  • you may be hurting or oppressing your clients, yourself, and others in your life and what to do about it.


  • to do this all without feeling burned out or flooded by others’ pain and emotions, and even energized after a day of clients. Imagine that!
  • And so much more!!!

      And if that wasn’t enough…

      The training also weaves in wellness supports like homeopathic remedies and essential oils, meditations and breathing techniques that will support the deeper spiritual, energetic, and  emotional work you do with your clients. 

      Oh, and if you’re feeling a little scared about all of this… We’ve got you covered.

      This fear could have a lot of reasons behind it, and we aim to help dismantle its hold – on you and your clients – and our primal brain wizardry will support you in looking fear in the eye, and courageously stepping in to becoming a coach or taking your already established business to the next level. Because, goodness knows, this can be more than half the battle!

      If you’re ready to break free from the colonized, abusive, manipulative, and gaslighting healing practices and modalities that perpetuate oppression instead of heal it,

      (#stopculturalappropriation, #indigenousrights, #breakfree,  #nothankyou, #thisisharmful, #healingthatstopsoppression, #weaponofgenocide, #wecandothisdifferently, #decolonizethisshit)

      so that you can find
      what is really true,
      who you really are,
      why you are here,
      and what contribution you can be to the world and humanity,
      come join us!

      P.S. Not blaming, not shaming,  just aiming for change!

      “This course was transformative for me. I’ve always been very sensitive and intuitive, and, truthfully, have been “facilitating” others my whole life, but didn’t know how to do it in a way that felt safe for me and them. The course provided a solid foundational understanding of the underpinnings of energy medicine – what it means to push and pull energy and how we can control our energy fields and how that creates warmth, space, safety, and/or groundness in our clients and ourselves. Our discussions were deep and meaningful. The care with which the teachers held the class and the students was also inspiring. We worked through the curriculum at a speed that was motivating and encouraging. This community is one of the greatest gifts of this program and I connected deeply with my fellow students as we learned and practiced on each other. 

      LaChiara Method stands apart from some other similar, but different, methods of energy medicine in the way they center and train us to be oppression and trauma-aware.  Being cognizant of the trauma and oppression that we all experience and inherit is an underpinning of this work – and Gabrielli and Chloë incorporate this reality into the LaChiara Method with deep integrity and compassion. This is a method of energy work and awareness-building that sits grounded firmly in our lived realities. And Gabrielli and Chloë have lots of resources for our continued learning on these subjects.

      I feel now that I can offer sessions to clients. I’m excited to continue to build my confidence and self-trust, and to complete the practice and supervision portion.  I’m not sure exactly how this method will weave itself into my future work but I feel certain of its value in my life.”

      I was a mess…

      This modality birthed out of the absolute frustration I, Gabrielli,  was bashing up against as a 30 something, one breasted cancer patient, diagnosed with breast cancer the day before 9/11, single mother, in an abusive, alcoholic relationship who was at my wits end with life.  

      I was DONE with all the oppressive healing boxes, the societal boxes, the familial boxes, every damn box under the sun – I was literally killing myself trying to fit in and find the right box!

      I was staring death in the eyes and knew somewhere so deep inside of me that I must be missing something. 

      If the trees aren’t wrong, and the birds aren’t wrong, and the river isn’t wrong, then how am I wrong? Bad? Defective?

      And if no one else could figure me out, or fix me, or heal me, or rescue me from my own damn self, then I’ve got to figure this out on my own.

      So, out of a conviction to make my own miracles, The LaChiara method birthed. Some of the modality birthed through me and some were tools and practices I learned and gathered along the way (click here to learn more about my amazing teachers).

      The LaChiara Method is a profoundly effective potpourri of teachings and tools that saved my life – and hundreds since.

      The missing link.

      What I came to realize is that energy medicine was my missing link. I could aim at my body, or deep spiritual work, or frozen beliefs over and over, and I did for many years, but when I learned how to work with energy, move it, shift it, shape it, clear it – all of that became 100x more effective and led me to AHA’s galore. 

      And holy shit, the amount of awareness I had suppressed blew my mind! 

      This is a modality that looks at it all – no part or piece left behind. And we find that if we bring this all together…

      Healing is natural.

      It’s effective.

      It’s real.

      It lasts.

      Truth be told, the LaChiara Method has changed both Chloë and my lives and thousands of others.

      “The experiences I have had in training with Gabrielli are invaluable. She brings her full self to her work and invites you to do the same. This encourages an unfolding of our natural healing potentials from a place of presence. I have never seen somebody so committed to living their purpose as Gabrielli. Her example of how she lives is truly inspirational. In her trainings, every minute detail, every interaction, is an opportunity for healing and transformation through consciousness. I have never felt so safe, accepted and free to explore my natural ability to heal. Gabrielli is remarkably gifted in so many ways, but I think it is her basic commitment to equality that lays the ground for such profound healing. Working with her, I tapped into the gift and importance of Sacred community for collective and personal transformation.”

      Meet Your Trainers

      This year’s training will be facilitated by Gabrielli LaChiara, creator of the LaChiara Method, and Chloe Faith Urban, Co-director of the LaChiara Method and lead trainer. Together, they provide a supportive, caring, and inspired environment for healing and learning. The trainings are magical yet practical, and user-friendly. Co-leadership offers ample support and assistance at every training and allows participants to see multiple ways of approaching the tools at hand.

      “Another door has opened a new pathway, an invitation, to look inside myself. The power of words is spectacular. Through practice I learn new ways to look at the totality I am. I see options, shifts and possibilities that are now open in ways I was previously unaware how to access. It is conceivable to now look at some things anew and make different choices. It’s easier to let go of old beliefs that no longer work. A conscious and visceral awareness that life offers new concepts of what hopefulness is. I am now taking a closer look at which thoughts create discomfort and then letting them go. In short, a new way of looking into what I want in my life, a new curiosity. The actual work is exciting, not needing to find answers, but rather a continuous clearing. I would say the ability to shift on a dime is amazing. Lastly and by no means least, the energetic part of the work has moved mountains inside of me.”

      - Stuart H.

      “I was skeptical at first; I had been on long board meetings over Zoom and found them to be so tiring and I had a hard time engaging with others in that medium. However, Gabrielli and Chloe have created a special space within Zoom, and our meetings became sacred circles in which we were all held. The screens truly faded away and I saw people, felt one another’s energy, and deepened my understanding of myself, and also of others. Having the meetings over Zoom made it possible for me to take part in this training, and it could not have been more well-timed for my life. I knew that I needed support for my mental health because it all felt like it was breaking down. Before the pandemic I had been working on managing my anxiety and depression, along with my history of trauma. I felt like I was managing it well enough. Then the pandemic hit, and all of my threads of “managing” fell away. I needed new tools and I needed them immediately. Jumping into this community through the training program gave me the roots to go down deep into the earth, with my arms extending like branches up to the sky. I feel grounded in myself, and open to the possibilities. My anxiety still comes around, and I have sadness and depression, fear, and (some) residual trauma in my life. These things haven’t necessarily gone away. What has changed is my perspective, my awareness, that these sensations can pass through, that I am connected to divine source, and I can love all of me, even the parts that are scary sometimes. I know that I still have a lot to learn, and I look forward to the healing journey, confident that my LaChiara Method toolbox will give me everything I need along the way. I feel like Gabrielli and Chloe gave me the tools to take my life back, to listen to my soul speak, that its ok to be myself, however awkward it might be sometimes. I find myself smiling for no reason these days, just because. It feels good to feel good again, as cheesy as that might sound.”

      Sliding Scale Considerations:

      Please consider our sliding scale in terms of a larger global and societal context of wealth.  We’ve been inspired by the innovative pay structure of Dr. Bayo Akomolafe, and present his framework: 


      We offer sliding scales based on your relative financial standing and level of access to wealth in the global context.  As you decide what amount to pay, we ask that you not only consider your present-day financial situation governed by income but also factors including:


      • Historical discrimination faced by your peoples
      • Your financial wealth (do you have retirement savings?)
      • Your access to income and financial wealth, both current and anticipated (how easily could you earn more income compared to other people in your country and in the world? do you expect to receive an inheritance?)
      • People counting on your financial livelihood including dependents and community members
      • And the socio-economic conditions of your locale (relative to other places in your country and in the world)

      If you feel challenged by the financial requirements of participation, please reach out to us. If this process is overwhelming or confusing, or if this framework does not resonate with you, we invite you to get in touch.  We are open to being in dialogue and relationship around this, we see it as a learning process for us all.


      Much gratitude to Dr. Akomolafe for his generosity in sharing his ideas and words.
