My passion for Polyvagal Theory guides my work, my writing, and my teaching. Polyvagal Theory, developed by Dr. Stephen Porges, offers a way to understand the human autonomic nervous system and directly engage with habitual patterns of response.  Through a polyvagal lens we can learn to listen to our embodied stories.  Using a polyvagal perspective, we can let go of self criticism and bring an open heart to exploring our daily experience. 

Thanks to everyone who has visited me here and supported my work.  Please visit my site,, to find publications, interviews, and workshops and continue the journey with me to move through the world in a Polyvagal informed way.
