Creating Empowering Environments

Our physical environment can impact our emotions and behaviors, both negatively and positively.  They have the ability to increase or reduce our stress.  The spaces in which we live and receive services can communicate safety and promote supportive relationships, or they can symbolize lack of dignity and agency, encouraging re-traumatization.  At Trauma-informed Design Consultants, we work with organizations to create spaces that identify and mitigate potential triggers, and reduce stress levels.



TiD Consultants offers design consulting, organizational trauma-informed design and care trainings, and professional development.  Read on to learn more about how we can help your organization.



We work with organizations of all purposes and sizes--from small non-profits who want to improve their spaces to large architectural firms seeking TiD Consultation for specific projects.  See a sampling of the projects that make us most proud.



We have had the pleasure of being profiled in the press.  See what they said about us.

Developing TiD Standard for all Massachusetts DCF Offices

Connections for Abused Women and their Children (CAWC) provides a shelter for adults and children, counseling, advocacy, and a 24-hour hotline for people affected by domestic violence.  We partnered with Canopy / architecture + design to provide a trauma-informed lens to CAWC's new location for their administrative offices and transitional residences.

Worked with a senior class as they created a 23,000 square foot, 3-story property for youth who were trafficked.  The final project included both program and residential space, and focused on mitigating potential triggers, maximizing comfort, and centralizing choice.  In order to realize how the environment could affect identity, worth and dignity, and promote empowerment, the class had to first understand the dynamics of human trafficking.

Partnered with MLA Studios to create a TiD Toolkit for DCF Offices.  Provided background in family services and its impact on the individuals receiving services, as well as staff.
