MORE ABOUT CORINNE PULLIAM
A TDCT PRACTITIONER AND LIFE MENTORING COACH

Greetings, everyone; my name is Corinne Pulliam. I am currently in my mid 30's. I am happily married to my husband, Christopher. We do not have any pets or children; however, we are thrilled with our life together. I have a brother, Johnny, who lives in F.L. with my future sister-in-law, Meagan. I wish we could travel to see them more; however, it is not feasible with our work schedule and financials. I am very close to my parents, and we try to visit them every few months. My family has supported me and all my crazy adventures and wacky ideas. I love playing board games and watching movies and T.V. shows. I have always been obsessed with vintage clothing, cars, style, etc. I love that old classic look. I grew up in Easton, PA, along with most of my family and friends living in Northeast Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Besides my parents and brother, my maternal grandmother and great Aunt lived with us. It was wonderful having a house full of people and love. It showed me what it was like to care for others. I learned to help support and manage my Great Aunt at a young age, and this could have been the start of wanting to work with people, but more on that later. I moved to Central PA in 2019 and am currently employed as a Habilitation Technician (HAB-tech) in addition to mentoring.

​I was very active from an early age. I was involved at our local church, played sports, cheered, was in Girl Scouts, twirled, danced tap, ballet, jazz, modern, theater, and lyrical, participated in gymnastics, and volunteered whenever possible. I loved being around others and participating in teamwork from an early age.

I played on our co-ed baseball team in elementary school. Our district separated boys into baseball and girls into softball when I was in 5th grade. I continued to play softball until high school, when I wanted to focus on other extracurricular activities and my academics. Not only did sports teach me about sportsmanship and teamwork, but sports also taught me time management and responsibility.

Girl Scouts was something that many girls my age were embarrassed and ashamed of. I did not care what others thought of me, as I was active in school and the community. I got my Silver Award in junior high school and my Gold Award as a senior in high school. These are two things I am incredibly proud of. The Silver Award is the highest award a Cadette Girl Scout can achieve and the second highest honor in Girl Scouting. Only 10% of Girl Scouts earn the Silver Award. The Gold Award is the highest achievement within the Girl Scouts of the U.S.A., earned by Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts. Only 5.4% of eligible Girl Scouts successfully earn the Gold Award.

Dancing was one of my all-time favorite things to do, and it still is. When I danced, it taught me how to be creative, especially during improv classes. It was a way for me to meet others and develop social relationships. Dancing helped build my self-confidence and showed me perseverance and self-motivation. I also developed mental dexterity from different types of teachers and learning styles.

 

I have worked in the medical field since 2008. I have worked with all types of individuals with all abilities. I have worked in pediatric care along with adults, seniors, and end-of-life hospices. My passion in life is truly taking care of others. I love the feeling of helping someone through their most challenging times. I enjoy being there and assisting people to gain new positive experiences. A combination of work and home life truly allows me to be fulfilled. My passion for helping people and working in the medical field is advantageous; however, it is easy to get caregiver burnout when you genuinely care about the individuals in your care. That is why equal work and home life are so crucial to me as part of my self-care.

My purpose in life is to help others be the best version of themselves. I like to help them grow their knowledge, find joy in their own lives, and allow them to live their best lives regardless of physical disabilities, intellectual disabilities, and emotional and social status.

Some of the most substantial experiences in my life have been my education and relationship with others, including my husband. I love to meet new people, make friends and acquaintances, and spend time with individuals in the community. My most recent significant event is my wedding. I married my amazing, fun-loving husband, Chris, on January 21st, 2023, and it has been a crazy, fun, and fantastic ride from the beginning.

Some of my most significant achievements include being valedictorian at my high school and my 4.0 GPA throughout college. Some of the schools and colleges I have attended include; Career Institute of Technology (Easton, PA), Northampton Community College (Bethlehem, PA), and Grand Canyon University (Phoenix, AZ), numerous training and additional classes through several colleges, including Penn State University (State College PA), Curtain University (Australia), The Institute of Continuing Education at the University of Cambridge (United Kingdom), and several other accredited and non-accredited online courses and curriculums. Some of my favorite pieces of training and classes include; Crisis Prevention Intervention (C.P.I.), Crisis Prevention Management (C.P.M.), Adult Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (C.P.R.) Training, First Aid Training, Automated External Defibrillation (AED) Training for Adults,  Medication and Insulin Administration, Seizure Awareness Training, Fire Safety Training,  Universal Precaution Training, Introduction to Autism, Mental Health Training, Abnormal Psychology courses, Child Psychology courses, Early Childhood Language and Literacy courses, Early Childhood Music and Movement courses, Early Childhood Professional Education courses, Speech Communication,  Behavioral and Health courses, Psychology courses,  and several Principles of Sociology courses.

​I am a certified touch therapist via Cuddliest; I took mentoring/coaching training at The Life Coach Training Institute, accredited by the (I.A.C.C.) International Association of Certified Coaches. I also completed a three-week training via HearMe! Which allowed me to become certified as an Active Listener. The course was called HearMe FIRST (Foundations in Responsive Support Training).

Currently, I am enrolled in the following courses via E.D.X. for professional development:

  • "Talk To Me" Improving Mental Health and Suicide Prevention In Adults.

  • A.P. Psychology- How Behavior Works

  • Autism And Mental Health

  • Autism And Neurodiversity: Building Child's Strengths

  • Exercising Leadership: Foundational Principles

  • Existential Well-Being Counseling: A Person-Centered Experiential Approach

  • Gender And Intersectionality

  • Learn Like A Pro: Science-Based Tools To Become Better At Anything

  • Managing Happiness

  • Mental Health and Nutrition

  • Positive Psychology

  • Psyc1030-Introduction to Social Psychology

  • Reinventing Yourself as A Professional

  • The Psychology of Emotions: An Introduction To Embodied Cognition.

 

​You may be wondering, why do I do what I do? But I do not have a solid answer. I have always loved people of all races, genders, sexual orientations, and abilities. I have always wanted to help people. I remember being in elementary school and knowing I would work with "special people" when I got older. I started taking O.C.C. courses at the Career Institute of Technology when I was only a junior in high school. I was dually enrolled and got honor roll and accommodations at both locations throughout the rest of my high school career.

Some of my professional strengths include my willingness to learn new skills, techniques, and general knowledge of a wide range of human resource academics. I have genuine compassion for what I do and believe I can make a difference. If I can make a positive difference with a client from mentoring, then I have done an excellent service to our society and the world, and that is what makes me so unique. Only a few mentors in my position want to have those responsibilities for creating a real positive difference; however, that is my ultimate goal.

​I look forward to meeting you soon!

GENERAL DESCRIPTION ABOUT TDCT

Healing Hands: Unleashing the Transformative Power of Touch Therapy

"In a gentle touch, we find the power to heal the wounds that words cannot reach."

 

In a society where people often feel detached and alone, touch therapy is a powerful and life-changing therapy that can bring healing and rejuvenation.

This brief description aims to provide insight into the practice of touch therapy and misunderstandings and emphasize its positive effects on individuals seeking comfort, assistance, and mental well-being.

Understanding Touch Therapy

Touch therapy, also known as somatic or tactile therapy, is a non-sexual practice that involves comforting touch to promote healing and enhance emotional well-being.

It's crucial to clarify that touch therapy is not inherently sexual and to clear up any confusion. This misinterpretation emerges due to not enough understanding and awareness. Touch therapy is carried out professionally and ethically, with strict boundaries and instructions.

I provide a safe and supportive environment for individuals to heal and experience the positive effects of touch without any sexual context. My focus is on helping individuals establish healthy boundaries and regain trust.

The Profound Benefits of Touch Therapy

 

Are you ready to embark on a journey filled with incredible advantages as you set out on a path of healing, connection, and self-exploration through the power of touch?

 

Emotional Healing

 

Imagine a place where stress and worry no longer exist. Touch therapy facilitates psychological recovery by utilizing the healing energy of touch. Let go of your worries, seek refuge in a comforting hug, and feel your sense of peace and well-being return. Unleash your inner strength with newfound resilience and emotional balance as you navigate life's challenges.

 

Building Trust and Connection

Touch therapy is a lifeline for those abandoned or mistreated or who have never received good touch. Learn to trust again as you travel the path to wholeness and connection. Your ability to trust others, set appropriate limits, and make real connections with others can all benefit from therapeutic touch that is skillfully led.

 

Mental Health Support

It would help if you took care of your mental health, and touch therapy can help you comprehensively do that. While conventional treatments focus on the mind, the physical aspects of mental health are explored in touch therapy. Explore a way to reduce the weight of depression, anxiety, and PTSD through touch therapy that offers a distinctive approach to coping with symptoms and cultivating a renewed outlook and energy.

 

As a touch therapist, I prioritize establishing a safe and welcoming environment for individuals to express their feelings and address their concerns related to touch, establish meaningful connections, and overcome personal challenges.

Using sessions that prioritize consent, we address different forms of physical contact, such as handshakes, back pats, hugs, and cuddling, to promote ease and comfort with touch between individuals.
