Hello, I’m Mary Giuliani.

Hello, I’m Mary Giuliani.

I am the author of It’s Not About Food, Drugs or Alcohol: It’s About Healing Complex PTSD.

I’ve also been a Master Certified Coach for over 20 years, and am a keynote speaker and seminar leader specializing in supporting survivors in healing from C-PTSD, achieving long-term recovery with food, weight, drugs, and alcohol – resulting in them reconnecting with themselves and others and turning their pain into power and purpose.  

As a survivor in long-term recovery from C-PTSD (complex PTSD), and struggles with food, severe obesity, alcohol, and drugs, I’m a fierce advocate for ending the stigma of obesity, addiction, and mental health disorders by providing science-based evidence of their direct link to ACEs (adverse childhood experiences) that result in survivors developing  C-PTSD.

I offer FREE information on the latest research, helpful tips, tools, and techniques in healing from C-PTSD and how to end your struggle with food, weight, substances, or close relationships by healing the root cause.

Over 50 & Afraid of Dying With Your Music Still in You? My 2nd Coming Out Story

If you said yes to this question, I so relate to your pain. Just a few short years ago, I would have definitely said YES to this question. I remember every time I would hear Wayne Dyer give a lecture, he would inevitably say “Don’t die with your music still in you.” When I first began hearing him say this, I thought it was such a beautiful and poignant way to deliver his message.
