About Evy


I'm Evy Yeager, founder and director of TraumaRoot.

I am an advocate, writer, and educator.


As a survivor of trauma, I have spent my life working to understand and address the ways that trauma affects our brains, bodies, and behavior. As a former client of an organization serving trauma survivors, I can help you understand how trauma affects your clients, and how you can serve them better. As a former employee of organizations serving people who have experienced trauma, I can help you transform your organizational culture and set up your staff for success. As a lifelong learner,  I combine personal experience and professional expertise with ongoing coursework and research  in neurobiology, social work, social justice, and trauma-informed systems.
