You've tried everything.

You've been to therapy, tried different therapists and different modalities, you've subscribed to the social media gurus, you've done webinars, been on meds, read books, been on retreats, maybe tried hallucinogens, researched on YouTube and maybe even tried someone else's course (or maybe a couple others). 

I believe you. You've tried everything.

But not this.

This is different.

PTRS is different. It's designed from the ground up on the Polyvagal Theory. It's PVT-informed to its core; the Theory is not just slapped on to the course because it's popular right now.

You know from my podcast that the PVT is my obsession. Not just something interesting or a niche. I unlearned a lot of what I was taught and don't include pop psych concepts in this course. This is 100% PVT to the core.

100% focused on the real you.

In the PTRS, we will spend zero time on your "parts" or your "inner child" or "ego" or "shadow self" or "future self" or building insight or [fill in the popular trend here]. If that's your thing, PTRS is not a good fit for you.

PTRS is 100% about you. The real you that exists right now and is reading these words. It's the concepts and techniques that I bring to my therapy sessions, packaged for you to do on your own time.

You're not alone.

Getting relief is not easy, especially if you're alone in your efforts. Feeling connected to others in this process is important for climbing your Polyvagal ladder.

You'll be able to meet with me and other members once a month for the Open Office Hour and communicate with myself and a private group of other PTRS participants. Getting clarification, asking questions about the course or sharing your successes is always okay.

Experience more freedom

PTRS teaches and guides you in building your capacity to self-regulate out of your stuck defensive state. As you get less stuck, you will experience more emotional freedom, clarity of thought and empathy for yourself and others.

Reduce your defensive state

PTRS will give you more ability to feel your "negative" feelings without judgment and then climb your Polyvagal ladder actively. It teaches and guides you through identifying, feeling and being with anxiety, anger, depression and more.

About your Relief Guide

Hi, I'm Justin Sunseri, a Psychotherapist that is obsessed with the Polyvagal Theory and helping traumatized individuals get relief from their stuck defensive state.

I'll be your teacher and guide through PTRS, from gaining a truly clear and full understanding of the theory, to building your safety state and even directly relieving your trauma.

Phase 2

Build your safety state in Building Safety Anchors

This is a crucial step that typical trauma courses neglect. Building the safety state is essential for the 3rd phase.

...it was my first real breakthrough and I continue to gain understanding of polyvagal theory and how integral it is to my condition and potential healing!!! You have a very unique take,  presentation and safe presence!!!​


I’m finding that I’m integrating little bits and pieces throughout my day and finding the things that help me to stay present. Once I shifted from thinking that this would help me get rid of my dysregulated feelings to thinking of it as making a bigger container for the feelings that were already there, I began to find it all more helpful.

Actively feel your stuck defensive state, mindfully experience it and allow the natural process
of self-regulation.

This is seriously amazing. I haven't seen anything like it before.​


The whole thing presents getting unstuck from a perspective I haven't seen before... This is really great! It's so hard to figure out how to apply PVT, so all these ideas
are so valuable.
