About Us

On a Mission to Overcome Nervous System Dysregulation

Heal Your Nervous System is on a mission to empower sensitive people to heal a dysregulated nervous system and reverse anxiety, burnout and chronic symptoms. We are a team of clinicians, researchers and coaches using a combination of neuroscience and somatic work to support people worldwide take control of how they feel.

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to thrive, regardless of their sensitivity levels.

We know that when your nervous system is regulated, you have more energy, better focus, stronger relationships, and can enjoy life more fully. That’s why we offer programs that help sensitive people learn the skills needed to regulate their nervous system and improve their well-being. We’ve helped thousands of people recover from symptoms like overwhelm, panic attacks, fatigue and digestive issues. And we’re just getting started.

Join us in our movement to create a more regulated world – one nervous system at a time!
