I've got GOOD NEWS, girl!!!
You don't have to feel powerless or helpless to your thoughts, emotions or circumstances anymore.
You don't have to let anxiety wreck havoc on your plans.
You no longer have to hear your partner say "what's with the tone", or feel embarrassed because you snapped at the sweet innocent hostess.
Your mood swings don't have to ruin your day (and everyone else's).
You can actually have motivation instead of dreading every task on your to do list.
You can take your power and authority back, girl!
You can be consistent again.
You can start to feel seen, safe, loved and worthy all by yourself.
You can have agency, confidence and security.
You can have profound peace whenever you want it.
And it all starts with your nervous system.
When anxiety hit you in the past, I'm sure you've tried to talk yourself down with thoughts like "I'm fine", "this is not a big deal" or "get over it already", but it didn't seem to work, right?
That's because anxiety is a symptom of a self-protective nervous system state, and so are mood swings, intrusive or self-criticizing thoughts, defensive responses, unpleasant emotions, low energy levels and fatigue.
Anxiety is a physiological response to a perceived threat or stressor in your environment, like being in a room filled with intimidating people that you don't know (feels threatening to me, idk about you).
You’ve probably also noticed that positive affirmations and self-help books aren’t cutting it - that’s because you can’t just change your mindset and change your life.
In other words, you can't think your way out of a physiological survival response.
We have to get back to our biology.
This electronic workbook will help you do just that. By getting curious and listening to your body, you can identify when your nervous system has slipped out of it's state of safety, referred to as Ventral, and into a self protective state due to perceived threats and stressors in your life.
You’ll get a toolbox of regulation practices for each specific state so you can respond to your body in its own language and safely bring your nervous system back to safety, peace and connection.

What people are saying
"Understanding my nervous system alone has changed, and more importantly SAVED, my life."
"I know tools to help myself release activation and to regulate. I didn't know how to do either of those things before and they make SUCH a difference in how I can handle day to day stressors."Ok, gimme the book already!
We're so glad you're here.
Hi, I'm Cortney!
I’m so glad you’re here. I’m the founder of You Can Heal with Us. I’ve invested hundreds of hours in mastering my skills as a trauma-informed coach from top trauma experts like Dr. Peter Levine, Diane Poole Heller, Dr. Stephen Porges, Frank Anderson and Deb Dana.
I’m on a mission to help highly resilient and ambitious women just like you feel empowered to heal from past traumas.
When I first started my healing journey, I didn’t know that my anxiety and insomnia were the result of how unsafe I felt in my body. In fact, none of my doctors or mental health practitioners even mentioned my body.
Can you relate?
I've also discovered that many of us have tried to feel heard many times before, but the environment or relationship wasn’t safe or able to hold the space for it.
Being in relationships or environments that don’t feel safe conditions us to believe that our story isn’t valid or that it didn’t matter.
Your story does matter, girl.
I know how scary it is to speak up in fear that you may be rejected, judged, or worse, that no one will believe you.
This is why a pivotal step toward healing is allowing yourself to be heard by people who can safely hold space and reintroduce what safety feels like to your body.
This is also why I’m committed to creating the best group experience that includes a live experience and 1:1 support, so you can experience feeling heard and safe.
We are trauma informed and trained practitioners.
We take our training and education very seriously. We have received trainings in the following:
Somatic Experiencing through the Trauma Healing Institute founded by Dr. Peter Levine
Polyvagal Theory by Dr. Stephen Porges and Deb Dana, LCSW
