Hello, I’m Sarah

I’m a neuroscience educator, constellations facilitator, certified Nonviolent Communication trainer and author who invites audiences into a compassionate understanding of the effects of relational trauma on the brain, and teaches about how to use resonance to change and heal.

But it wasn’t always this way… I used to struggle with brutal depression and anxiety. I was in constant battle with a savagely self-critical inner voice that told me I was worthless, stupid, and unlovable. Before I understood the science of how difficult events impact our automatic brain patterning, and how trauma fragments our capacity for self-warmth, I thought I was just plain broken.

But there is nothing wrong with me, nor with you. We make sense. No matter what challenging feelings we have, no matter how flawed our strategies are for trying to get our needs met. I am thrilled to share what I’ve learned about how trauma impacts the brain, and how we can move into a joyful relationship with ourselves and others through resonant healing. Read more about me here.

I dream of a world where all humans have a sense of belonging and mattering, where we treat ourselves, the planet, and the beings around us with gentleness and care. Do you have this longing too? If so, you are in the right place.

Understanding Rage and Honoring Boundaries in Healing Trauma

In our culture, rage is considered mostly unacceptable, especially by women. But rage is one of our eight circuits of emotion and motivation. In this podcast interview, we discuss how rage helps us understand when our boundaries have been violated.  Why is rage so...

We Need to Broaden our Definition of Trauma

Trauma comes not only from individual adverse childhood experiences, but from 500+ years of colonialism, ancestral wounding, living in a world on the brink of environmental and social collapse, forced migration, genocide, racism, gender oppression, and other epigentic wounds we carry in our bodies and spirits.
