Help us make our services accessible to all who desire the help.

How you can help couples and trauma victims!

Seth Atwater has developed a series of tools that have helped hundreds of couples and individuals move past trauma to rediscover their self-worth through building self-confidence and belonging.

At Atwater Healing we are making our tools available to as many trauma victims and couples as possible. The cost of helping these couples and individuals is beyond what many can afford. Your pledge can help Seth and Atwater Healing make these services available to these people at only a fraction of the cost, allowing many more hundreds and thousands of victims to receive the much needed relief we can offer them through individual and couples coaching, online training and workshops, seminars, classes, and retreats.

Sexual Trauma

Women and men suffering from sexual trauma often feel alone and don’t know where to turn for help. Even when they do get help they often times feel judged by those they turn to. Sometimes those who have been abused or raped are not even sure what has happened to them and might not be able to identify the abuse. Often times they blame themselves for what has happened to them. We at Atwater Healing have worked with many women and men, and have guided them to the Savior where they have found true healing. We use scripture, literature and music to help them through their healing process. We understand what these people are suffering and we are here to help them rebuild trust and hope.

Domestic Abuse

Many men and women face domestic violence, verbal and emotional abuse in the relationships where they should feel the most safe and secure. The loss of trust and the trauma faced by these individuals may seem insurmountable. Our coaching staff have been fully trained in the tools that can bring hope and trust back into the lives of these individuals. By focusing on the Savior and using scripture, literature, and music our coaches will guide individuals to healing and success in their individual lives and in their current and future relationships.

Standard Goal

$20,000 in monthly pledges

When we raise $20,000 per month in subscriptions, we will reduce the cost of our healing retreats for victims and couples by 90% (from $5,000 to $500). We will create a sliding scale for clients for counseling and coaching services and provide clients access to our membership website for classes and assessments.

At this level, each sponsor will have access to our sponsorship website. This website will include classes in several domains to aid in self-awareness and making self-directed positive change, all taught by Seth and our coaches. It will include diagrams of the tools and access to assessments. Sponsors will have access to the full archive of our blogs, vlogs, podcasts, newsletters and more.

First Stretch Goal

$50,000 in monthly pledges

When we raise $50,000 per month, we will be able to provide a scholarship fund to help people who cannot afford the $500 reduced rate for retreats and give 6 months of aftercare for those participating in retreats.

We will integrate therapy and coaching professional specifications into the website.

This level will allow therapists and coaches to coordinate with their clients to see how they are performing in our classes and trainings and will allow them to view assessment results and recommendations, with client approval.

Second Stretch Goal

$500,000 in monthly pledges

When we raise $500,000 per month, we will increase the number of retreats we run.

We will include games into the website designed to help clients practice the tools they’re learning. Through these online games they will be able to hone their skills, making them feel natural.

Atwater Healing tools will be converted into apps, allowing clients and sponsors to have easier access to use.

We will purchase a facility where we will create a full time retreat center designed with specifications for our work and to create a comfortable but exciting site for recovery and healing.
