Dr. Denis Marier, ND, MA is a registered Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine with a practice focus in mind-body medicine, ecopsychology, trauma and inherited tramua, naturopathic oncology and naturopathic palliative care. Denis is committed to educating and empowering individuals on their wellness journey. Much of his healing has happened through sharing his story in Sacred Circles, group and individual therapy.

Denis also hosts a podcast entitled "Groomed". Established in late 2020, he leads his listeners on a journey of his own personal experience of being groomed by a sexual predator in conversation with his oldest friend, John Conlon. These series of episodes demonstrate how pre- mediated the grooming process is with Marier’s authentic recall of the seemingly innocuous circumstances in the beginning. By sharing, we can alert young kids, parents, teachers and other vested allies in the hopes of preventing this type of thing from happening again. Opening up the dialogue in this forum makes the topic less taboo and provides a safe place to access resources.

In this episode we dive into:

1. 1 in 6 males are sexually abused in their lifetime

2. De-stigmatizing male sexual abuse

3. Denis' story of how he was groomed by a highschool teacher and the outcome

4. Spreading awareness and healing for this population

Profile picture for Hayley Adams

Hayley Adams

My name is Hayley Adams, CMHC, LPC, CCTP. I am a retired Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) veteran and licensed therapist. I graduated in 2017 from Thomas University with a Masters in Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling with a specialization in Addictions. I also have credentials in trauma treatment. I understand trauma from both personal and professional lenses. My behavioral health background began 15 years ago on a volunteer basis where I worked with Native American tribes to provide mental health support to teen mothers. From there, my passion for people began to grow full force. I got my start as a therapist working in a Therapeutic Community (TC) in a prison providing rehabilitation services. I went on to work for a few dual diagnosis centers working in addictions after that. I then branched out and began curriculum development writing therapeutic content for three distinguished dual diagnosis centers. Wanting to broaden my horizons, I worked for an Employee Assistance Program (EAP). There, I specialized in working with first responders, trauma cases, crisis care, and family issues. My love for people didn’t stop growing there. I wanted to help more individuals on a wider scale. As a result I started the Traumagility podcast and coaching academy. I’m on a mission to help at least ONE MILLION individuals find healing in their lives.
