Trauma Therapy

Healing from trauma takes careful re-patterning. As a trauma therapist, I draw from Somatic Experiencing, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Hakomi, and other trauma theory models to work with different types of trauma. These models all include a somatic component because trauma affects the nervous system, procedural memory, and neurobiology.

Acute trauma includes single events such as an injury/accident, invasive medical procedure, or sexual assault. Developmental trauma and complex trauma can be a result of emotional abuse, sexual abuse, and/or physical abuse. This can take place within toxic relationships and family systems. Recovering from developmental trauma and C-PTSD often goes hand-in-hand with learning to set boundaries and overcoming codependency. Childhood trauma can manifest in a variety of ways in adulthood, ranging from somaticized symptoms like chronic pain to behavioral symptoms like anxiety dissociative disorders, or obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). Regardless of how the trauma affects your life currently, getting to the roots of the issue is where long-term relief can be achieved. This is why I do deeper work with my clients once they have a toolbox of coping skills established.
