Karla J. Noland is a wife, working mom, award-winning author & speaker, and a trauma informed certified Self-Discovery & Positive Intelligence Coach™ who loves sharing what she has learned. She resides with her family in Durham, NC.
As the founder and CEO of Reveal Heal Thrive LLC, Karla's mission is to help trauma survivors discover their true self after surviving life’s storms. Her latest book and bereavement companion journal, titled The Day My Heart Turned Blue, is the 2022 Eric Hoffer Spiritual book award winner, which chronicles her healing journey after the death of her mother.
Coach Karla established Reveal Heal Thrive LLC in October 2020 after the untimely passing of her mother. She spent much of her life holding on to pain, trauma, and anger, and as part of her healing process, Karla recognized that she was merely surviving in life but was not thriving. She wanted to live a more purposeful life and let go of any attachments that no longer served her. Over time, Karla turned her adversity into opportunity, and thus Reveal Heal Thrive LLC was born.
Core Values: Spirituality, Creativity, Uniqueness, Personal Growth, & Helping People
Coach Karla J Noland seeks to inspire trauma survivors to give themselves permission to pursue their goals and dreams. Our goal is to build confidence, provide clarity, and increase capability with each breakthrough that happens by helping trauma survivors combine their unique superpowers and values to achieve their goals.
I stand on the principle, we cannot heal what we are not willing to reveal... suppressed emotions, the dreams we have set aside, and any other attachments we are holding on to that require us to be perfect in order to be happy.
As a trauma survivor, I believe overcoming trials and tribulations has made you resilient and made it possible for you to manifest your purpose through your pain. Maybe you’ve lived in survival mode and believed the lies you’ve told yourself. You’ve held onto the false narrative that it’s too late, you don’t have what it takes, or you’re selfish to pursue your dreams. I’ve been there. I put everyone else ahead of me and forgot who I was until I got help. If this is your struggle, I can help.
Allow me to coach you on how to give yourself permission to discover your true self, visualize the life you desire after trauma, and create actionable steps in achieving your goals.

The Nurturer - Core driver of purpose, passion, expression and flow in work and life!
As a Nurturer, giving care is your call. You are deeply empathetic. You've been this way as long as you can remember. You see others in need and you feel called to help, in whatever way you can, take care of them, relieve suffering. Sometimes to the point where you give so much, there's nothing left for you.
The Maven - Shadow Sparketype ®
You latch onto a topic, field or industry and devour everything you can know about it. Staying "surface level" just isn't an option for you. It's no fun. You are driven to learn, to discover, to ferret out information, wisdom and knowledge. But, for you, when you're really being honest, that drive is almost always in service of doing the work of your Primary Sparketype at the higher possible level. It's more a means than an end.

Saboteurs are the voices in your head that generate negative emotions in the way you handle life’s everyday challenges. They represent automated patterns in your mind for how to think, feel, and respond. They cause all of your stress, anxiety, self-doubt, frustration, restlessness, and unhappiness. They sabotage your performance, wellbeing, and relationships.
