Beyond Her Dreams: How Micaela Transformed Her Health and Life

Listen to “Beyond Her Dreams: How Micaela Transformed Her Health and Life” on Spreaker.

We welcome Micaela Giles, Co-Founder at Origins Collaborative Care PLLC – Director of Mind-Body Education and Healing. Micaela is a true ‘survivor to thriver’ story. In our time together, she shares how she took control to save herself and discovered a pathway of healing that transformed her health and her life in ways she only dreamed possible.

Her dedication to uncovering what was wrong led her to take her profound personal experience, comprehensive formal education, and an exhaustive amount of informal research and transform it into a unique and powerful approach that is deeply intuitive and responsive to those needs she serves. Just some of what Micaela shares is —
• Why developing a well-being community is utmost in recovery
• How ill health can be the result of early developmental trauma,
• What is the autonomic nervous system, and how it plays a part in our recovery,
• Ways to learn to trust yourself (again)
• What is Polyvagal Theory, other wellness and well-being techniques, and so much more…
