Julie chats today with Laura Khoudari, a New York City based trauma informed certified personal trainer. In this episode Julie connects with a colleague who is currently training in Somatic Experiencing trauma work. Laura’s mission is to increase access to somatic-based treatment for women and genderqueer individuals living with trauma, anxiety, depression, and chronic pain in order to help them restore healthy nervous system function, touch into their innate resilience, improve their quality of life, and begin to thrive!
