Healing is possible

Trauma Therapy



We all experience life events that change us. Therapy can help the healing process by incorporating your suffering into your life in a positive way. Therapy is especially helpful if you have a trauma, a significant loss, a relationship or a childhood memory that seems to invade every part of your day. Sometimes there may be other events in your life you can not seem to get past, and you feel stuck. Psychotherapy is when your inner exploration is witnessed by a trained & skilled practitioner who offers insight into possible motives, unconscious conditioning & actions that have effects on your life.


Trauma Treatment Focus

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) & Brainspotting are very effective tools to help process areas in your life you are feeling stuck. You can regenerate your self, & experience life in a new way. EMDR and Brainspotting are neurobiologically based therapy models using bilateral stimulation and/or brain spots that help you process disturbing & upsetting memories & thoughts in a new & less upsetting way.  


Somatic Treatment

SE (Somatic Experiencing) is another effective treatment to help bring symptom relief to the way body stores unprocessed trauma, or any other felt sense somatic experience of overwhelm, anxiety, panic, spaciness or fear. Through the guidance of observing & facilitating subtle involuntary motor movements to conscious completion, we can feel restored and renewed with symptom relief.
