I can help you get trauma relief.

Getting unstuck from trauma involves three essential phases. Choose which phase you are ready to start in:

Phase 1:
I need to learn with clarity

My clients and podcast listeners often tell me that simply learning the Polyvagal Theory provided them with an explanation they needed. One that is free of judgment or blame. It opens their ability to get to the next phase.

Phase 2:
I need more safety in my system

The next step is to build your capacity to stay grounded in the present moment, in your body. You do this through increasing the strength of your Polyvagal safety pathways, leading to more self-compassion, empathy and connection.

Phase 3:
I need relief from my trauma

This phase should only be attempted once the other two are solidified. This involves directly feeling your stuck defensive state: its emotions, sensations and impulses, then mindfully experiencing them.
