I don't believe you're broken. You might believe that. But I simply can't join you. You can improve your life. You are capable of doing so. But maybe you're not. That's not because you can't. The issue here is being stuck. Stuck in a defensive autonomic state: flight, fight, shut down or freeze. You're stuck, not broken. There is hope.
I love being a therapist. I also love presenting about trauma or parenting.
From East Side San Jose to the Mission District of San Francisco. In Stockton or even the more affluent Palo Alto.
Trauma has been a constant underlying factor with nearly everyone I've worked with since 2008 - in the public schools, county outpatient clinics, group homes, foster care, juvenile halls and more. It's become the core focus of my professional development, especially the Polyvagal Theory.
Doing the Polyvagal Podcast is just another way to educate and assist people in their journey of becoming unstuck, in a way that is easy to understand and utilize.
