Jane asserts that the body and movement is one of the most powerful alchemic tools for shaping the mind. After all, how can we harness our intuition and resilience if we only use our heads? We cover:

  • The sweet spot between therapy and coaching

  • Talk therapy versus somatics therapy

  • The Window of Tolerance, interception, and titration

10 tools for self-regulation


  • “I got tired of the talking elements of psychotherapy that didn’t actually lead me any deeper into feeling like i was unstuck or not broken.”

  • “One of my core strengths is tenacity, because i don’t have the ability to have ever given up. I hope to help other people find that in themselves.”

  • “When you look for a therapist as a trauma survivor or with complex trauma history or attachment trauma history, we want someone who already knows about the ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) and has been working with them for a long time, someone who already understands the complexity of trauma and that trauma is not a disorder; it’s a response.”

  • “Post-traumatic stress disorder is actually post-traumatic stress injury. So, the problem is that there’s not a ton of therapists who didn’t have access to this knowledge early on in their career. This requires a lot of psychotherapists who have been doing continuing education after their original educational program.”

  • “The level of embodiment isn’t always available to people in the same way, so we need to understand that dropping down into body awareness is not in the same way for everybody… Some of us have more of that inner body sensation, which is called INTERCEPTION in a way that’s available to us that doesn’t make us feel more dysregulated...”

  • “We do things to survive and not fall apart or lose our shit.”

  • “We can’t race to embodiment. We can’t race toward, ‘I’m going to be this perfect embodied person’ which is really an expression of neo-liberalism that is filtered into the wellness world.”

  • “I’m a big believer of titration. You don’t jump into the deep end and drown with what you’re feeling in the inside of your body. You can learn how to put a big toe in and take a break.”

  • Judith Hurman: “First stage of trauma healing is safety and stabilization. The second stage is might be trauma repurposing and memory, which doesn’t always come for people. The third stage would be rejoining into life and getting back to activities that bring you joy or rediscovering them for the first time.”

  • “My work is creating the bridge between where people are and helping them get back to feeling safe in their bodies. When we feel safe in our bodies, we can have safe connections.”

  • “We are creatures that have survived all these years because we have been in communities where we looked out for each other.”

  • “If we don’t feel safe in our bodies because of ongoing traumatic stress on a physiological level, but if we don’t feel safe connecting with other people our neurobiology doesn’t make that available through the vagus nerve. My work is, where do we get in through that loop? Where can I help people learn how to enter and break that cycle?”

  • RECOVER YOUR WARRIOR: “I think of that calm and strong part of ourselves that we all want to be able to access, and so that’s sort of the energy that i’ve tapped to at many different points of my life.”

  • “Self-care feels like i’m jumping off a platform, and there’s a net underneath me so that if i fell, there’s a safety net to catch me and i’ll be okay. When i think of my safety net and feeling safe enough to jump that platform, i think about the community that i can turn to if i need support.”

  • “We often think that moving out of trauma means we’re moving toward resiliency. I would beg to differ. The trauma survivors that I see coming through my door are already resilient. They’re still standing and able to connect with other people. If you’ve survived what you’ve survived and you’re still standing here, you already are resilient.”

I’m a mindful strength and movement coach,  and a trauma informed embodied resilience expert.
You would probably agree with me that we're all healing from some past hurt or loss. That doesn’t mean we're broken. In fact, our past struggles, traumas or health issues don’t have to be a life sentence. I believe we have the power, with enough support and resourcing, to free ourselves from the shackles that limit our recovery process and our potential for more happiness and joy. While it is widely accepted that mindfulness is necessary to shape the body, I assert that the body and movement is one of the most powerful alchemic tools for shaping the mind. After all, how can we harness our intuition and resilience if we only use our heads? As a practitioner in the health industry for two decades, my approach is to weave my diverse training in holistic and mindful strength and movement coaching with trauma informed mindfulness and nervous system regulation interventions, transforming emotional and physical overwhelm into embodied strength, mobility and vitality. Through personal and professional exploration, I know that you can cultivate a deeply felt sense of resilience and agency to realize more freedom and joy in your life. I am also an experienced speaker, widely consulted media expert in print, radio and TV and an internationally recognized author.
