Episode 83: The Department of Homeland Security Story + a Candid Conversation On Nervous System Awareness with My Daughter
My 16-year-old daughter joins me on the podcast to share an incident we had with the Department of Homeland Security during our return from a mother-daughter trip to Mexico earlier this year. She tells the story from her perspective, including what she was feeling in her body and her thoughts on how I handled it as the adult/mom. We talk about trauma responses and what they feel like in her body and whether or not feeling her feelings has been helpful for my daughter. (Hint: she says she doesn't believe that "this stuff works", but what makes me super happy is that she actually has the language to even have the conversation.) At first glance, this episode seems to not paint me or my work in a very positive light. But what I hope listeners will glean from this episode is that, as parents, our kids often think what we try to teach them is dumb or pointless, but the important thing is that we're planting seeds. Our kids have their own journeys, their own karma to work out, their own soul mission and contracts. There's no way they're going to leave home without trauma or nervous system dysregulation — even with a parent who is a trauma coach and nervous system educator! Still, my daughter has language, and that gives me hope. NEWS: Nervous System 101 (my one-stop workshop for all things nervous system, brain inflammation, and trauma) is coming up again very soon! By popular request, I'm offering 2 different times; pick the one that works best for your schedule. Saturday, June 4 at 11am CDT or Tuesday, June 7 at 6pm CDT Tickets are $55, however if you need financial assistance, please send me a DM on Instagram or email and just say, "Please give me the discount code." We will give you a code for $20 off your ticket, no questions asked. Whether you attend live or not, your purchase of a ticket guarantees access to the recording of the workshop, which you will have lifetime access to. The workshop is held live on Zoom and consists of 2 hours of teaching followed by an unlimited amount of time for Q&A at the end. Seating is limited, so save your spot at

Episode 78: Client Journey — I Was Ready to Surrender Before I Knew What Surrender Meant with Brynn Strickland
In this episode, I'm chatting with my former client Brynn. Brynn explores the insights, breakthroughs, and challenges she experienced while working with me for 12 weeks. Brynn learned to be more in tune with her body, to feel and express anger and grief, to find compassion for Self and those who harmed her underneath all that anger and grief, and to lean into triggers and difficult emotions without resistance and fear. She shares so openly and sweetly about how trauma coaching, nervous system healing, and awareness work helped her surrender more and more, and she no longer feels like life is happening to her; it's happening FOR her.

Episode 77: Client Journey — Increasing Self-Trust & Decreasing Control with Chris Willburn
In this special Client Journey episode, I'm interviewing my coaching client Chris Willburn. In this interview, Chris shares some of the insights, breakthroughs, and transformations he experienced while working with me. He was able to embody more of his Authentic Self with greater self-trust and self-awareness and release some of the harmful habits he'd picked up when in survival mode (like controlling and micromanaging his body). Chris also shares how working with me helped him realize that trauma has had more of an impact on his life and health than he realized. During our first 12 weeks of working as client and coach, Chris realized he had a lot of brain inflammation that was contributing to some really uncomfortable physical symptoms. Throughout this process, Chris developed more trust in himself, felt a lot of feelings he'd been avoiding for decades, released that stored trauma energy from his body, and began to feel physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually better.

Episode 15: What Astrology Says About 2020 & What's Coming in 2021 with Tammy Antoinette (part 2)
Wildfires. Pandemic. Economic shutdown. US Election. Murder hornets. Cancel culture. It's no secret that 2020 is likely the biggest dumpster fire any of us has ever known. Could we have known about any of it before it happened? What's in store for 2021? Is it going to get worse or better? And, what in the heck does all of this have to do with trauma-healing?? This is part 2 of my interview with astrologer Tammy Antoinette. In this second part, we're transitioning from talking about trauma-healing and astrology on a personal level to what the stars and planets are showing for the collective. The Universe wants us to be well. In the coming year, we have massive opportunities for peace, truth, unity, and fearlessness.  Subscribe!

Episode 15: Know Thyself & Look at the Sky: Astrology as Trauma-Healing Tool with Tammy Antoinette (part 1)
In 5500 BC, Hermes Trismegistus, the first documented ancient astrologer said, "Know thyself". Plato and Socrates also emphasized this phrase. Through astrology, we can know ourselves better.  The challenges, traumas, blessings, and lessons that are in store for you in this lifetime may very well be written in the stars! Astrological readings with a knowledgable astrologer can provide amazing insights into childhood traumas and life lessons, including life themes and even traumas that the conscious mind has blocked out.  In the stars, we can see current events of traumatic energies or situations or upcoming challenges. We can even ask why the soul may have chosen to experience the adversities, traumas, or lessons of this lifetime. For example, you wouldn't have your specific life mission if you did not experience the challenges that you have. Because of those experiences, you are able to better assist others to transcend their own traumas. In this episode, we'll answer the questions: What blessings can we reap as a result of the traumas we've experienced? How can looking at our astrological charts help us transmute trauma? What is in store for our future as a collective? Can astrology help us remedy childhood trauma? Astrology gives us a birds-eye view of our past, present, and future -- and the opportunities to heal issues that may have been passed down generations before us.  This episode is part 1 of 2 parts.

Episode 12: 10 Tips for a Trauma-Informed, Mentally & Emotionally Happy Holiday Season
While full of joy and family and togetherness, the holidays represent a difficult time of year for many. The American Psychological Association reports that 38% of people feel overwhelmed with grief, depression, and anxiety during the holiday season. The sources of this overwhelm include the stress of gift-giving, family relationships, and financial pressure. Given the fact that the holidays are upon us during a pandemic, well, that just adds more insult to injury. For better or worse, 2020 has been a year of immense transformation. I propose that this be the year we choose not to have the same ol' holiday. However you celebrate (or don't), these 10 tips for a trauma-informed, mentally and emotionally happy holiday season will help you navigate awkward conversation topics, set boundaries, carve out time and space for self-care, and hold space for your own or others hard feelings during this time.

Episode 6: Help for Relationship Anxiety, Embodiment of Emotion Through Dance and Movement Therapy, and Pole Dancing with Chelsea Horton
Are you constantly worried about your romantic relationships? Do you find yourself wondering if you and your partner are "supposed" to be together, if you're right for each other, if they're cheating on your or going to leave you? This is relationship anxiety and OCD. And, there's help! In this episode, I interview Chelsea Horton, a relationship anxiety specialist and body-mind integration expert. We talk about identifying relationship anxiety and the help and community that's available if you're experiencing relationship anxiety as a trauma response. We also discuss embodying emotions -- giving emotions full reign to be felt, moved, and processed by the body. For example, if sadness had a dance, what would it be? Or, if fear had a movement, how would it look? Furthermore, Chelsea explains how pole dancing has been a tool in her trauma-healing toolbox because it's allowed her to access her inner "bad girl" and embody all aspects of herself without shame. You'll gain insight on how dance, movement, and embodiment can be a powerful tool for dealing with relationship anxiety and general trauma-healing. Subscribe!

Episode 5: How I Intentionally Used Psychiatric Medications as a Tool in my Trauma-Healing Toolbox
I'm a natural-crunchy-hippie-health freak, and I caused myself to suffer with debilitating anxiety and insomnia for months because of my desire to stay "100% natural" and for fear of side effects and dependency of psychiatric medications. In this episode, I'm sharing why I finally got to the point of asking for the help of pharmaceuticals and how I used them with purpose and intention as I excavated trauma and its resulting unhealthy coping skills, codependency, limiting beliefs, toxic thoughts, and fear. I dive into DNA mutations, pharmacogenetics, and why working with a skilled psychiatrist will yield a better, more therapeutic experience than going to the general practitioner. This episode is not intended to encourage or discourage the use of psychiatric medication; rather, it is to share my perspective, as an "anti-medication" person who finally stopped resisting the help of meds and used them to empower myself, move beyond fear, and work on healing trauma.

Episode 4: Toxic Wellness Culture: How It Invalidates Trauma & Keeps Us Stuck & Sick
You've tried numerous dietary restrictions, have spent thousands on supplements, and have hopped from one natural practitioner to the next... and you're still chronically ill. Sound familiar? Did you know it never actually ends? The health and wellness industry has convinced us that we're sick and in need of special diets, numerous natural practitioners, supplement protocols, and cleanses to "fix" ourselves. This is a wolf in sheep's clothing that I refer to as "toxic wellness culture". Not only does it keep us over-focused on physical health, it also keeps those of us with trauma stuck in trauma loops -- trying to heal the manifestations of emotional, mental, ancestral, and mental trauma solely with physical means. Toxic wellness culture also invalidates trauma and keeps trauma survivors on a constant carousel, going around and around, trying supplements and restrictive diets, seeing little, if any, improvements.
