The NOW CALM Method: 

About the Course

It’s absolutely essential to be centered in the nervous system in order to bond with loved ones, learn new things and enact changes in your behavior. No one ever changes from a state of high stress. Even though we might feel motivated, we end up shutting down or disconnecting. True change and growth  happen from the peaceful center.

What would it mean to you to experience your life this way – flowing from your peaceful, calm center? What kinds of conversations and connecting moments could you have with your partner or your children, friends and coworkers that could change the trajectory of your life? When your energy is clearly directed from your own wise mind and heart center, you’ll have access to the power of positivity that you know is there – but often gets lost in the chaos and conflict; the distractions and distress of daily life that pile on negative thoughts, feelings and beliefs.

Because of the integration of my understanding of neuroplasticity and adult learning theory, this attuned and engaging course, The NOW CALM Method will take you through quick, life-changing and healing steps! It’s what I teach all of my therapy clients, but now, in this course, I can do that in a format that is more reinforcing than therapy alone! 


When you get The NOW CALM Method: Come Home to You, you’ll have access to the 6 core modules of this course on your own private membership site. 

Come Home to You

I believe we all have an inner healer - a part of us that wants what’s best for us and will seek out what sustains our health and happiness when set free to do so. In The NOW CALM Method: Come Home to You, I’ve created a program that lets you activate and strengthen the healthiest parts of yourself while calming stress. You’ll feel calmer, which will impact how you communicate and show up in the world. You’ll shift out of the negative trajectories from your past and experience the power of presence through the unique experiences I’ve created to teach and reinforce key principles from neuroscience.

The stories we believe about our life situations and our relationships are all dependent on the state of our nervous system, in any given moment.

So it’s through calming and regulating our nervous systems that we will change our stories. Inner peace truly leads to all good things.

People come to me seeking healthier relationships, stronger boundaries and positive mental health changes of all kinds. The foundation for all healing lies in attunement and integration – in other words – awareness and connection. This is what I teach and empower you to do right away in The NOW CALM Method. It’s what I wish I had known when I was a young adult, trying to navigate the consuming responsibilities of career, partnering and parenting.

Through-out my life, I’ve been continually seeking the truth about how change, healing and growth really work and how changes can stick. There is a promise that those who seek will find. And I’ve been thrilled to be able to bring these healing truths to others as a therapist and writer.

I’ve taken this journey myself through my own personal practices. Going through cancer recovery in 2015, I chose to permanently put stress behind me, and promised myself I’d have a joyful, creative future, and I have lived into this promise, even during cancer treatment in 2015, and the pandemic of 2020. Yes, distressing things can happen around me, and even to me – but I’m not filled with worry. My nervous system stays regulated and centered.

And I’ve taken many therapy clients through this process.

I was an early student of the Polyvagel Theory and Interpersonal Neurobiology which emerged from trauma studies. As both a certified trauma therapist and certified Gottman couple therapist, it became clear to me that doing couple therapy without a clear understanding of the workings of the nervous system is like trying to do surgery without a strong schema for human anatomy. And this truth applies to all therapy. 


How can a couple do The NOW CALM Method together?

The NOW CALM Method is excellent for a couple to take together. Think of an experience course like a journey. If you were going to take a trip together, you’d each need a ticket so you could both have a seat. Similarly, you’ll each need to purchase the course to obtain your own individual sites to work the program.

How much time will this take? My days are very full.

This will take you about 3 hours per week maximum, (possibly less) but you’ll also be able to expand many of the practices to take as long as you’d like, if you have the time. My background in communication and education has trained me to be very succinct, and I’m told I have a unique ability to simplify complex concepts to provide powerful applications. The material will be dispensed in small, digestible nuggets, so you get the maximum benefit for the least investment of your time.

Do you offer a money-back guarantee?

Yes, for the first 30 days of the course, I’ll refund you for any unused portion. (Obviously, my time used for live and private sessions can’t be refunded.)

What is your professional background?

At UC Berkeley in the late 1980’s I did research on computer-facilitated learning. Later, I pursued a license in mental health counseling and started a private practice. I focused my continuing education in two different domains: trauma therapy and Gottman couple therapy, and earned certifications in both. In the decade of 2010, I served as a consultant in the Lifespan Integration therapy community, assisting other clinicians with trauma cases and guiding them through the certification process. I also write and publish many articles for The Gottman Institute’s Relationship Blog and other sites with particular emphasis on how the nervous system impacts the couple dynamic.

You mention ancient spiritual material, what do you mean, specifically?

With f-mri equipment, researchers have been able to study the brain activity and health of those who practice various forms of mindfulness meditation and yoga. Personally, I’m a Christian contemplative, and have been practicing Centering Prayer and yoga for over 2 decades. Buddhism has developed a rich history in contemplation or meditation, and modern psychology has drawn upon all of these roots to develop Mindfulness practices which are non-religious, but are described and supported in various spiritual texts and traditions.  I share some of this wisdom in the course, and I think anyone will find this history interesting and adaptive to personal beliefs. I don’t provide spiritual direction or specific doctrinal teaching.
