Trauma Therapy

Psychological and emotional trauma is the result of extremely stressful events that shake your sense of safety and security, contributing to feelings of helplessness and fear. Traumatic experiences aren't always a threat to life or safety but can really be any situation that leaves you feeling isolated and overwhelmed. Because trauma differs between individuals according to their subjective experiences, people often react differently. A trauma-informed therapist can help you learn how to cope with difficult emotions, relieve symptoms and build healthier self-esteem.

To alleviate the symptoms of trauma, a variety of therapies can be employed. However, a trauma therapy that utilizes a somatic approach, such as Brainspotting trauma therapy, is most effective. Somatic therapy engages the mind, the body, and the nervous system to dispel the energy that has become trapped by trauma.

The resilience of the human spirit is amazing. I have been working or volunteering with survivors of violence for over 20 years. It is one of the most rewarding aspects of my life. I have worked at safe houses, rape crisis centers, and with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Witnessing people go from surviving to thriving is a privilege I am honored to be a part of.

Trauma is any event that leaves a negative lasting effect. It is stored in our body and often shapes how we think about ourselves. Trauma therapy considers the symptoms you might be experiencing and gives you control and predictability throughout your treatment. I will work with you to help you find relief from the suffering you have been experiencing so you can enjoy life and have peace.

Our bodies and minds are exquisitely tuned to maximize our survival. When we experience a trauma, our threat-tracking system can help insure both that we avoid things which overwhelm our ability to cope, and also stimulate us to neutralize or eliminate the threat if possible. The symptoms produced can be painful and distressing, but we also have the innate power to resolve them, with help.

I am Certified in EMDR as well as in Brainspotting (both of these are professionally recognized trauma treatments). I have been an EMDR trainer and have used both of these techniques in my private practice for over 15 years. I use these treatments to educate clients on the neurobiology of trauma and to give them the tools they need to lessen the hold that trauma has over their lives.

I've been helping clients heal trauma for 40 years and am highly trained in several forms of trauma therapy, including: Brainspotting, EMDR, Body Centered therapy and Hypnotherapy. These methods clear trauma symptoms, triggers and disturbances by working below the mind, on a body and nervous system level-in a very gentle, safe and titrated way.They also calm anxiety and support an easy relaxation.
