How Jodee Can Help

Sometimes being the leader brings its own set of challenges. Jodee's unorthodox approach to coaching is a hybrid mix of her education in neuroscience, professional coaching, neuro-linguistic programming, developmental psychology, complex trauma, the mind-body connection, consciousness, addictions, anxiety, depression, and a myriad of other things. Jodee has also had the complete honor of spending the past year learning Compassionate Inquiry with Dr. Gabor Maté.

The goal of coaching is to help you identify what's in the way and to help you uncover the root system that creates that invisible barrier. That barrier houses your implicit memories, hidden assumptions, old stories, and often the exact seed of thought that has grow the biggest limiting belief for you. We help you find sustainable change and internal wholeness. Coaching sessions are client-led, coach-guided, and invite deep awareness and insight into the unconscious patterns and limbic imprinting that run interference for you. Navigating that space with you is Jodee's fluent language.

Typically, after a few sessions, your symptoms start to dissipate (anxiety, depression, aggression, anger, frustration, unhealthy coping mechanisms, etc.) and you start to gain awareness around the people, places and things trigger you and how to release the energy that fuels them. Sessions can be done as a one off yet most clients find sustainable freedom after doing 4-5 sessions. 

Most clients experience sustainable results after 3-4 sessions vs doing years of therapy.

What is limbic imprinting?

Limbic imprinting is the emotional (and physiological) residue that gets left behind when an original emotional ‘wound’ isn’t tended to, processed, or acknowledged. When an emotional 'wound' is left unaddressed, emotional, physical and mental health bear the weight and begin to skew one's system. The presence of that skewed energy then shows up in every area of someone's life and overtime, unconsciously becomes their focus. 
We are all capable of healing.

What unprocessed limbic imprinting leads to?

Unprocessed limbic imprinting is the perfect root system to create challenges like anxiety, depression, addictions, ADD/ADHD, behavior challenges, learning disorders, oppositional defiant disorder, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorders, PTSD, cPTSD and a myriad of other emotional, relational, familial, educational, legal, mental and work-related challenges - all of which are often diagnosed as a standalone disorders (Bessel van der Kolk, 2005).

Who is trained in healing this?

Although we would love to believe that licensed mental health practitioners (LMHP) are, the sad truth is - they are NOT. At the moment, this is a grey area for the majority of LMHPs (psychologists, therapists, psychotherapists, social workers and counselors) and physicians alike. The American Psychological Association (APA) has yet to define this space or formally train LMHPs (or anyone else) in it, leaving the public health in peril. We are intentionally not using the word trauma because we believe it's ill defined and incredibly subjective, yet still a widely used term in the world of mental health.

Trauma isn’t what happens to you...trauma is what happens inside you, as a result of what happened to you - Gabor Maté

Interesting Facts About Trauma

  • Most people don't believe they have/had trauma anywhere in their life because they've completely normalized the presence of it. Trauma does not have to be a gigantic event. It can be the tiniest event that grows the biggest tree that's now blocking the access you need to live your best life. Think about the size of a seed vs the size of what can grow from it.
  • Despite the high prevalence of societal trauma exposure and its link with a wide variety of psychopathology symptoms and human suffering, most mental health clinicians receive little systematic training in assessing or treating trauma (Henning, J. A., Brand, B., & Courtois, C. A. (2022). Graduate training and certification in trauma treatment for clinical practitioners. Training and Education in Professional Psychology, 16(4), 362-375. https://doi.org/10.1037/tep0000326). 
  • Although the research literature on trauma and traumatic stress is extensive and constantly expanding, most psychologists have a cursory knowledge of trauma at best (Courtois, C. A., & Gold, S. N. (2009). The need for inclusion of psychological trauma in the professional curriculum: A call to action. Psychological Trauma, 1(1), 3-23. https://doi.org/10.1037/a0015224).
  • Extensive coverage of trauma is not an integral component of the standard curricula in graduate-level education (Cook, J. M., Simiola, V., Ellis, A. E., & Thompson, R. (2017). Training in trauma psychology: A national survey of doctoral graduate programs. Training and Education in Professional Psychology, 11(2), 108-114. https://doi.org/10.1037/tep0000150).
  • The appropriate treatment for any given individual diagnosed with developmental trauma will not ultimately be based on a single fixed generic therapy, but instead on a matching of treatment components and practices that have been shown with similar individuals to best address the specific symptoms (Ford, J. D., 2021. Progress and limitations in the treatment of complex PTSD and developmental trauma disorder. Current Treatment Options in Psychiatry, 8(1), 1-17. https://doi.org/10.1007/s40501-020-00236-6) & (Ford, J. D. (2023). Why we need a developmentally appropriate trauma diagnosis for children: A 10-year update on developmental trauma disorder. Journal of Child & Adolescent Trauma, 16(2), 403-418. https://doi.org/10.1007/s40653-021-00415-4)
