Birth Trauma and Behavior Change for Children

Your family members don’t have to suffer with Pain, Anxiety, or Depression


Power Struggle Behaviors

Children with birth trauma or conception trauma are often hyper sensitive and engage in power struggles. They pull you into the “Power Fear Triangle.” The key is understanding the origins of this power struggle, helping them to regulate sensations, and getting off the power fear triangle.


We go from Victim to Persecutor to Rescuer and it goes round and round. This stable emotional drama will not give up. Learn the skills to disengage and reframe emotions in order to “get off the triangle!”


Power struggles are exhausting

I am confident you are a good enough parent. But, children with birth trauma or conception trauma can engage in constant power triangles with themselves and with you. They can refuse to enjoy life, be controlling, anxious, hyper-sensitive, or exhausting to be around. Their experience of birth was loaded with danger and they don’t “know” it. Nothing soothes that sense of danger without professional intervention. When their stress increases, these children act out.

Does your child…

  • Push you away
  • Try to control you or others
  • Have unusual demands or sensitivities
  • Ignore your limits
  • Need your attention all the time

“We have been working with Annie for about 4 months now. I have 2 adopted girls from China, who both carry some deep seated issues from their earliest of days. Some of the issues are abandonment, rejection, traumatic birth and neglect. The manifestation of these issues is not necessarily looked at by Western medicine. They are often just noted as behavioral issues or general learning disabilities.


We moved to Boulder almost 7 years ago and my husband and I both grew up with the practice of Western Medicine and a bit of support from Psychologists. Here in Boulder there are many choices for alternative, touchy feely, out there options. I have to say I was a skeptic. We have tried The Sensory Learning Program, but it did not work for us. We have tried psychologists but it was not right for our kid. Hearing about Annie’s work, again I had my doubts. But parents will try what they can for their kids.


I am not really sure how Annie does it, but she looks at the whole person, the body, their behaviors, and spirit. Taking all into consideration, she is able to get to the cause of their pain.


Through reflex work, story and play, Annie connects with the girls and works with us to heal their hurt. She is very intuitive and her soft gentle energy has helped us all connect. It makes sense to me now and it is working. We still have a long way to go, but there are signs of healing.”
