Growing up in a dysfunctional family, Allison began her attempts to break toxic patterns at an early age.

Her path has lead her through multiple unhealthy relationships, career changes, religious experiences and life as a foster/adoptive parent. While she is still healing from wounds of her childhood, she currently has a life she never thought would exist.

She is now married to her soulmate, mother to three beautiful adopted sons, and helping others through her work as a Chiropractic Neurologist.

In this podversation:

  • Allison's epiphany at age 12
  • "We want to mess them up so they have THEIR problems NOT OUR problems
  • The day Allison decided to cut ties with her family
  • Dynamics of a narcissistic family system (e.g., scapegoat, golden child)
  • Why adult children may still be "obeying" their parents
  • How chiropracty healed many of Allison's somatic symptoms
  • What it was like to live at home as a grown woman trying to finish her degrees
  • The power of the mind-body connection and the illnesses that can result
  • "If there is more than one way to perceive something, choose the way that makes you happier."
  • How Allison and her husband came to adopt their three sons
  • What it was like growing up in the shadow of her mother's stillborn daughter before her
  • The empowerment that comes from realizing there's nothing you can do to make someone love you
  • Dealing with the pushback and victim shaming
  • Love is unconditional but relationships are not

    • Looking UP instead of looking down (taking off the blinders)
    • Meditation, nature, disconnecting from social media
    • Movement (dance, yoga, cartwheeling in your living room...whatever)
    • Venting/ processing with trusted advisers (be careful of co-ruminating though!)

Shawna started out in very mind oriented therapy, with a Master of Arts in Counselling, but life had other plans. 

Her body began to speak so loudly through a number of diagnoses and symptoms, that after years of suffering, she was required to listen. Learning to listen to her body took her on a long journey of learning and self-discovery and lead Shawna to the world of energy and consciousness based therapies, which combined so well with the parts she loved about counselling.

Her main modality, BodyTalk, is a combination of the feminine energy of intuition and Eastern healing philosophies and the masculine energy of Western science, psychology and epigenetic research, just the way she likes it!

Shawna's online practice focuses on women’s trauma, healing from it and how it is connected to the autoimmune illness, mental health issues and other health problems women suffer. Near her home in Costa Rica, she is constantly inspired by the strength of the local women she meets where she volunteers at a free energy clinic.
