Complexity is a beautiful aspect of life that adds color, texture and wonder. Yet when you’ve lost the forest not only for the trees, but every leaf and individual groove of bark, complexity creates confusion and a feeling of fracturedness . Healing from trauma can feel like felling a forest by snapping twigs when you try to address every complication that arises as if it were its own, individual issue. That’s one way to go.
But not the only one.
All complexity emanates from a few simple patterns. Knowing how to isolate and identify those base pairs leads you to freedom from trauma faster than you could ever imagine - without all of the splinters. This course teaches you to uncover the fundamental somatoenergetic (body and emotional), without getting lost in the wider forest, so you can cut a path straight to the light of day.
Trauma symptoms, no matter how long held, no matter how deeply ingrained, no matter how generalized, cannot stand when you take out their roots.

B.V. went from taking 4 Xanax a day, every day for the last 10 years, to just 1 after only a 5 day free challenge with me.
Therapy and taking 4 Xanax a day is how B.V. managed her childhood trauma for the past 10 years. Experiencing molestation and the deaths of her younger siblings led to agoraphobia and severe anxiety in her adult life. Her fight/flight response was on 24/7 - she punched and kicked her partner in her sleep, and never felt rested.
She stumbled across this course (then called Reversing the Shame Spiral, Breaking the Mask) while scrolling through Facebook. The metaphor resonated strongly and she knew she had to sign up.
Day 2 of class, we discussed the energetics of choice, and it finally clicked - not only is it not her fault her brothers died, but her choices and theirs were entirely separate. Nothing she did would have made them make a different choice or created a different outcome. Guilt killed.
This opened the door for her to make some “freeing and terrifying” self discoveries. Her guilt spiral caused her to blame herself for the molestation, unconsciously manifesting in her relationships with her children - holding them too tightly and to too high a standard - and her fiance - punishing him by keeping him at a distance. Now she not only sees these patterns and tendencies in herself and works to correct them, but recognizes similar patterns in her father and is encouraging him to find help.
When we spoke, B.V. was able to tell her story clearly and matter-of-fact. Before our class she would be swallowed by her history and devolve into an incomprehensible puddle. Vicious cycles of thought that would overwhelm her she can now slow down and see the truth. She is also experiencing fewer body tremors and a decrease in the severity of her drop foot, not to mention she halved her daily Xanax use and had only felt the need for 1 the day of our conversation.
And the pièce de résistance, where before she would dissociate and engage with her fiance as an empty shell, B.V. now is enjoying cuddling and carrying on fully present, full-sentenced conversations!
