Somatic Experiencing Practitioner specializing in the physiology of stress and in renegotiating shock and developmental trauma
I've heard so many new clients say that they had lost all hope because they felt like they had already tried everything and nothing seemed to work for them. What's even worse is that traditional Western allopathic medicine left a bad taste in their mouth when they were told that anxiety, panic and PTSD were incurable and that they would simply have to suck it up and learn to accept their fate. Well, if you think that smells fishy, then you are right. Listen, I used to suffer from 8-10 full-blown panic attacks every day. Yet, I haven't had a singIe one in nearly 10 years. And I have been blessed to be able to share a proven road map and a decade of clinical experience with hundreds of trauma survivors. Look, what if you are not battling with a psychological disorder, but a physiological condition? Once you can make that mental shift, then you, too, can discover how to easily reclaim your life - and your sanity. Imagine feeling safe, joyful and excited about the future for the first time in ages and, once again, in control of your life! Do you want to reconnect with how it feels to be grounded, centered, embodied AND empowered? You are NOT alone. There IS hope. I want to HELP. - Brian D Mahan, SEP

Stress-related illnesses, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, trigger changes in brain structure, including differences in the volume of gray matter versus white matter, as well as the size and connectivity of.. read more →

As a psychologist, one of the questions I get asked the most is, “Why is this happening to me?” In other words, why do some people experience depression and anxiety? Why do they have an addiction? Why does their child have obsessive compulsive disorder or schizophrenia? In the military, soldiers often wonder why they experience.. read more →
