LaidOpen explores the naked truth about sexuality, from trauma to transcendence. Join us for honest conversations whether you are turned on or can’t find the switch. Get questions answered about how to take baby steps towards having connected sex. This podcast is for post-trauma thrivers and their loved ones to understand how all forms of trauma affect sexual expression.

Every week she shares her own story, answers your questions, offers practical exercises, and interviews other survivors, as well as experts and authors in the field of somatics, trauma, healing modalities, mindfulness, and the arts.
