    First off, a giant thank-you to my sponsor:

    Somatic Experiencing ( http://traumahealing.org/TTP )

    Trauma may be a fact of life, but it doesn’t have to be a life sentence. Somatic Experiencing is a psychobiological method of addressing clients’ physical and emotional trauma conditions, and helps to give voice to their experiences without a need for them to retell the story.

    SE was founded by Dr. Peter Levine, author of the bestseller Waking the Tiger, who developed Somatic Experiencing based on explorations of how animals deal with threat, nervous system overwhelm, and traumatic experiences on a daily basis.

    SE focuses on regulation of the nervous system and offers the opportunity to engage, complete, and resolve the body’s instinctual responses to traumatic experiences. For more information regarding Somatic Experiencing and the SE professional training program, please visit: traumahealing.org/TTP ( http://traumahealing.org/TTP )

    Mark is the founder of The Embodied Facilitator Course , Embodied Yoga Principles , The Embodiment Podcast and The Embodiment Conference.

    Adrian has also had the opportunity to fulfill many other nontraditional roles under Special Operations Command. He has participated in large operations like the capture of Fallujah, as well as many irregular posts across Afghanistan as a Marine Raider.

     

    After a complicated history, which required him being medically retired and seeking his own mental health services, he decided to become a Mental Health Counselor. Shorty into his career he was provided with the opportunity to pursue his true passion and create a program specifically for veterans and active duty personnel, which he named, The Sheepdog Program.

     

    Adrian’s personal experiences in wounded warrior battalion, and being out-processed through the military, provided a unique perspective on how mental health services were falling short in understanding and treating his brothers and sisters in arms. After retirement, he decided to put his future career where his heart was and pursue an education in mental health counseling.

    Jennifer’s writings can be found on Medium, most often curated under the Mental Health category, and she also serves as the Director of Innovative Client Solutions and is a mentor to current students at the International Association of Trauma Recovery Coaching. 

    Jennifer practices with gentle guidance to help her clients identify the core beliefs trauma taught them, and the repetitive patterns which are holding them back from being the best version of themselves. Jennifer teaches her clients healthy coping skills and tools to stabilize their lives in the short term, and to evolve from that new space, longer-term. She helps her clients increase awareness and make space for growth and healing by integrating psychoeducation, the neuroscience of trauma, somatic recognition and trigger tools all of which help to manage complex trauma symptoms.
