Helping people and families discover their potential and the relationship between their mind, body, environment, and spirit.

I am to provide a safe, practical, and effective opportunity for curious, willing human beings to overcome limitations, including trauma, physical, mental, and emotional disturbances. And address the dis-ease within oneself that can be expressed as illness.

The Autonomic Nervous System is the foreground for health and vitality or lack thereof. Responsible for all bodily functions like breathing, digesting, moving, and the protective responses of flight, fight, and freeze. If we work with it directly, we can get to the source of mental, physical, or emotional issues.

The Nervous System is designed to protect and keep us alive, but when it is overworking, or there is too much stored stress and survival energy, it hyperfunctions and is over-protecting, such as Autoimmune conditions, anxious patterns, and diseases of many kinds.

If a bear is chasing you, everything within the system is geared to flee, fight, or freeze (aka playing dead). This is valuable for surviving but not for thriving. Unresolved trauma and stress can keep us stuck in survival physiology, which is then impacted by chronic stress. Whatever the issues, the underlying nervous system physiology is the foundation for learning, healing, and adapting. Freedom lives within the capacity to be resilient and overcome adversity. To embody sovereign will and life force rather than living from a survival state and indoctrinations that can limit our ability to truly thrive.

I work with people from the human physiology level, which is how a living organism or bodily part functions. Through practical somatic, which means relating to the body, to bring greater nervous system regulation for ourselves and our children. To overcome trauma and stress physiology, we need to directly connect with this survival energy rather than just changing thoughts and behaviors. When in a survival state, the system is trying to protect itself; no amount of rational thought or positive honking will alter that physiology.
