This Week on the Podcast I have none other than the formidable Amy Acker. Amy is a Psychotherapist, integrative life coach, published author & poet.
Amy has been a client of mine for over a year and it’s been such a joy to be on the journey with her. She is a beautiful and intelligent woman who holds so much wisdom.
In this interview Amy talks about:
Her experience being in a deep functional freeze during the beginning of her journey while also being VERY high-functioning.
Her journey of growing her nervous system capacity & some of the resistance that showed up along the way.
The difference between understanding the nervous system on a mental and intellectual level and connecting to your own nervous system and where it is in its own process.
Her experience inside The Embodied Healing Systems Certification
I know you’ll enjoy this episode.

I was about 6 years into my healing journey when I discovered the role the nervous system plays in healing from trauma and chronic stress. By healing journey, I mean healing from a childhood of abuse and neglect. Side effects of being raised by a mom whose unresolved childhood trauma led to paranoid schizophrenia, NPD and manic depression.
My journey started with therapy. At around 18, I found myself in the office of an angel who helped me understand that my home was not normal. That it was, in fact, abusive. She gave me a check list for abuse and I checked off almost everything on it.

I had a boyfriend who was dealing with severe...
Entrepreneurial Stress - A Healthy & Holistic Way to Respond
There is a push and pull to growth. We feel pulled to grow so that we can become people who do the amazing things we dream of doing and feel the amazing things we dream of feeling. And yet, the process of growth is a valley of internal obstacles. One of the obstacles that can show up in the valley is trauma. Life calls us to move through the trauma that has kept us coping rather than living, so that we can have space inside to make our dreams a reality.
As entrepreneurs - the wild animals we are - we choose an alternative path. Those of us who feel called to bring our gifts to the world through entrepreneurship choose a path of complex problems that become more complex with each stage of growth. We choose a path that requires emotional intelligence and leadership - a relational IQ that can allow us to meet the needs of the market, lead our teams and maintain our relationships with other people in our...

In this episode of the heal for real podcast, I am talking about trauma and choice.
I discuss what trauma is - and how my understanding of trauma allows me to have a very pragmatic and optimistic view of healing.
I also discuss the role of choice in healing and why I believe that - for entrepreneurs and high performers - understanding trauma and healing makes life and business so much better.
