I’ve Been Where You Are

I Can Help Lead You Through

I’m an expert on chronic illness, chronic trauma, relationship/attachment repair, and inner child healing. I’ve got the rare combination of in-depth doctoral-level education and training as a physical therapist, and many years of coaching others in wellness and lifestyle education.  And, I have been through my own heroine’s journey of spending nearly 2 decades of my life navigating through deep, debilitating illness and finally found my way out!

To help AWAKEN others to discover their True Self Essence - activating self-healing and inner freedom.

The Primal Trust mission is carried out through the creation of a COMMUNITY to support each other on their transformational path.spacer

I understand the experience of childhood trauma and long term chronic illness patterns.

I was born into deep trauma patterns and challenging family dynamics and developed protective bodily stress responses as a result. I suffered for well over a decade with debilitating chronic infections and sensitivities that caused deep suffering. (Lyme disease, mold, chronic fatigue, dysautonomia, etc.) I have learned how to activate my own mind-body self-healing by cultivating the embodiment of what I call “Primal Trust”.  See my full story-video on the HOME page.

I know victim consciousness well.  I don’t use the word ‘victim’ in a shaming way, rather victim consciousness simply means the awareness of our innate self-empowerment is still limited. I personally have chosen a path to find my empowerment, my opportunities, and my responsibilities in the areas of life where I have felt victimized.  And now I love to help others find freedom in their lives in areas where they have lost their power and capacity to thrive.

I've been a wayshower to others of how to make transformational health and lifestyle changes for over 20 years.

I graduated with my doctorate degree in Physical Therapy from Pacific University in 2003 with post-graduate training in orthopedic manual therapy and specializing in somatic movement and chronic pain/injury conditions.  My professional training also incorporated principles from Hanna Somatics, The Sarno Method,  and other mind-body connection practices.

*Although I’m educated and trained as a physical therapist, the Primal Trust Program is not giving physical therapy advice or treatment.  I am instead bringing wellness and lifestyle education and practices while utilizing my knowledge as a physical therapist to weave scientific principles into my approach.

My own personal continuing education has focused primarily on neuroplasticity-based healing methods, neurophysiology of trauma and attachment, emotional regulation practices, mindfulness training, and breathwork. I’m certified in the PSYCH-K technique. I’ve incorporated principles into my Primal Trust wellness and lifestyle coaching from programs and practices such as the Lightning Process, DNRS, Gupta Program, Dr. Joe Dispenza’s Work, The Polyvagal Theory, Emotional Freedom Technique© (EFT), HeartMath©, NLP,  Germanic Healing Knowledge, MAP Recode, Magnetic Mind Method, and Matrix Energetics.
