“Things should be made as simple as possible, but not any simpler.” –Einstein

Dr. Reggie’s method for wellness is the result of the simplification and practical application of many sources that have equally played a role in shaping how she works. Those many sources include:

  1. Training as both an undergraduate and graduate student at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, where she earned a Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Doctorate degree;
  2. Post-doctoral training in Somatic Experiencing with Dr. Peter Levine;
  3. Training with her personal somatic therapist and cranial-sachral healer, Stephen Sova;
  4. Training as an educator in private & public pre-K through 12th -grade schools, and as a University Professor;
  5. Training as a parent with her greatest teacher, now 11-year-old Jules Kessler (Dr. Reggie’s son);
  6. The important influences of current neuroscience, metaphysics, and meditation.

Self-Regulation Training (SRT), known to some as the Melrose Healing Method, is a quiet, naturalistic way of healing the effects of stress and trauma. It is the unique result of the merging of my training as an Ivy-league educated Psychologist, certification as a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP), years of study of current neuroscience, metaphysics, and meditation, as well as personal life experiences.
Somatic Experiencing (SE), the short-term trauma-healing approach developed by Dr. Peter Levine (, has been a great influence on my method. In the 18 years since my SE certification, I have adapted SE to meet the needs of my clientele through a natural and gradual process of simplification. My own personal recovery from the effects of trauma and addiction, and the 27 years I’ve been an educator and healer, have allowed my work to become simpler with far better results.
“The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook.” 
-William James
“Eliminate the unnecessary so the necessary can speak.”
-Hans Hofmann
SRT, like SE, recognizes the limits of talk therapy and other treatment modalities that use catharsis and other activating techniques in order to “discharge” stressful or traumatic material. Such stimulating techniques may offer temporary relief, but their benefits are rarely long-term. These more activating approaches, in their lack of a complete understanding of the impact of stress and trauma on the brain, can overwhelm the nervous system and re-traumatize rather than heal.
Like SE, SRT helps “renegotiate” patterns of arousal and anxiety by carefully supporting the body’s natural ability to release over-activation. By combining and interweaving elements of stress and trauma with strengths and resources, a new, complete and more empowering experience is created, thus creating new, more powerful neural pathways in the brain. This is when clients begin to notice a new and greater repertoire of emotional and behavioral choices. They move from being stuck in rage, helplessness, and anxiety to a fluid experience of empowerment, peace, and resiliency thereby strengthening and building resistance to future stress and trauma.
Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, a leading medical doctor, scientific researcher, and teacher at Harvard Medical Center stated that the effects of stress and trauma rob people of their capacity to “be here.” He went on to say, that “verbal meaning-making is a secondary part of what patients need to benefit from.” What they need more primarily is to be helped to “move through physical experience and gain the mastery that traditional psychotherapy [has been] unable to help people with. Therapy needs to consist of helping people to be in their bodies and to understand their bodily sensations. And that is certainly not something that any of the traditional psychotherapies have helped people to do very well.” This is something Self-Regulation Training (SRT) does very well.
