The Current State of Crisis

Crisis is more than an event, it’s anything that sets you off balance. There can be a crisis in your life at any given time. The statistics are real.

Experience Trauma

60% of people experience trauma in their lifetime.

Abuse Substances Post-Trauma

76% turn to drugs/alcohol following a traumatic experience.

Experience Emotional Crisis

Every person will have at least one emotional crisis in their life.


Shelly is equipped to assist with trauma in various situations and workspaces, including Schools, corporations, and Law enforcement offices.

Shelly offers multiple different curriculums in order to provide the best counseling and training suitable for each individual incident.

Some of her workshops include –

Worldview and Faith in the workplace (law enforcement specific)

How your conscious/soul/spirit is supported.

The Three legged stool method

We have physical and emotional/mental support in the current societal norm, but the spirit/soul needs to be addressed too.

Chaplaincy (trauma/crisis fields)

Provides support for the conscious/soul/spirit support, an area that most others are not qualified or supported by ecclesiastical protection.

Why Shelly

Shelly Pinomaki lost her sister at the hands of a murderer during Christmas 2011, and witnessed the additional trauma inflicted upon her family from well-meaning friends, families – even professionals – because they had no idea what to say or do. Shelly became impassioned to help others. In 2022 Shelly created non-profit in philanthropic support of the RESPECT Project a program that provides mentorship and training for at-risk-youth, provided by the San Diego Sheriff’s Department, with whom she also serves as a chaplain for.
