The Healing Trauma Podcast
I get it. I really do.
I could not wait until childhood was finally over and I could live free and away from the terror and dread that I experienced in my childhood and teenage years. It was only to realize that it felt like I had not really escaped my childhood after all.
The feelings, sensations, patterns, responses, and stuckness were still very much alive and present in my body and affecting my life. I did not understand this because everything on the outside appeared well. I had a career I loved, a beautiful family of my own, and a great community of friends. I often felt stuck in responses and sensations that made little to no sense. Until I came across an understanding of Somatics and The Nervous system that things finally began to change.
And they can for you too.
The good news is that today we recognize that trauma is so much more than a past memory or an event. We know that it can leave a trauma imprint on the nervous system.
My life is very different from what it once was. Trauma is no longer at the forefront of my daily experience. Neuroscience says that brains can change.
They can, slowly and over time.
My passion today as a Trauma -trained and Nervous System Informed practitioner is to support you to feel empowered and regulated so you that can feel safe, get unstuck, and become more present towards the things that you are wanting most in life.
