He was just like my mom…
In my early twenties I had a dumpster fire of a relationship filled with chaos and codependency.
I was the savior and the good girl who was going to rescue my addict boyfriend and make him unbroken.
Have you ever been there?
Turns out it was me that was sick and twisted up from a childhood of abuse and stranger-than-fiction family dysfunction.
My mother - the paranoid schizophrenic, violent, manic depressive tyrant. And my father, ever loyal to my mother and unable to get himself or me out of the situation.
When I was spat out into the world, I was driven, ambitious, high-performing and talented. I was also extremely unaware of just how much my childhood had marked me.
I didn’t know I had brain damage from growing up in abuse and neglect.
I didn’t know I was in the chronic freeze and had been my entire life.
I was a MESS - but I had no sweet clue about that.
In this episode Carly shares her experience working together 1-1 for 6 months!
She talks about how it didn't feel fancy to invest in her life and nervous system because there wasn't a tangible result like there is when investing in business.
But ultimately, she fell in love with the work and experienced impact in both her business AND her life.
She also talks about her experience inside The School of Embodied Healing Systems and calls this work life-saving!
You will LOVE this candid conversation.

Recently I went through something terrifying that would have absolutely taken me out before I built the nervous system that I have now.
AND I am so glad that I had the tools and knowledge to support me to get through it and keep me sane.
Fear & stress is part of the game when you’re an ambitious, high-performing entrepreneur. It’s part of life - there’s no way of getting around that!
But you CAN navigate fear in a way that leads to more capacity, more health and deeper purpose?
This episode is all about leaning into fear but with a nervous system spin!
Here’s what I cover:

Healthy Expression Helps Your Cells Repair Themselves!
Self Expression Keeps You Healthy!
And I’m not just talking about emotional and spiritual health - I am talking about your physical health too! It allows for good flow within the body systems and actually promotes cellular repair.
Healthy, authentic expression helps us attract safe connection and repel unsafe connection.
It’s what allows us to engage in conflict without harm.

As an entrepreneur and high-performer - healthy, authentic expression allows you to sell, lead teams effectively, and communicate with your market.
It allows you to grow a business that encourages truthful two-way communication.

High-Performance, Hard Work & Trauma
I am reading Michael Dell’s awesome book - “Play Nice But Win”. And I love it. He tells his story of being quite a scrappy, resourceful entrepreneur since he was a teenager. The book zeroes in on the high-stakes transaction he successfully completed when he took his company private after being public. He did this because he wanted to make some big time changes within the company without being in the public eye.
WOOPH! Love that.
It’s thrilling and amazing.
And it’s got me thinking about what it takes to do the real deep hard work of bringing your big dreams to life in a healthy way.
There is nothing wrong with hard work!
Being an entrepreneur, of course there is some hard work required on the journey of building your dream life and business.
Having big dreams does require some effort.

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.

Work With Amy: ...
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.
It was her that helped me realize I needed to move away from my parents home.
After that, things were not all well and good. I was a mess - and chose to put myself in messy relationships with messy people. I was dysfunctional inside. But I worked hard at my retail job, I participated in church leadership, and I did well in college as an honour roll student.
I had a boyfriend who was dealing with severe...
