Trauma Treatment for Relational Trauma, distressing events, and PTSD
If you have experienced a distressing event, or perhaps, trauma from past or current relationships, you may have noticed that you can’t quite “get over it.” That’s because “trauma” is as much a biological event(s) as it is psychological. I offer a biological approach to healing and treatment trauma or any type of ‘stress’ that just feels impossible to overcome.
I am a Certified Practitioner of the Trauma Resiliency Model®, which is a somatic (relating to the body) and biological model that bridges the body and mind in healing together. Science shows this type of model is much more effective at treating any kind of distress. From the TRM and CRM website: “The Trauma Resiliency Model® and Community Resiliency Model® are designed to help individuals understand the biology of traumatic stress reactions and learn specific skills to return the body, mind and spirit back to balance after experiencing traumatic events. These skills can awaken the hope that has, for some, been lost after natural and human-made disasters.”
I also offer a specific modality called Brainspotting (BSP), which is at the forefront of trauma treatment and was derived out of the well-known EMDR model. Brainspotting locates points in the client’s visual field that help to access unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain. (BSP) was discovered in 2003, by David Grand, Ph.D. Over 13,000 therapists have been trained in BSP (52 internationally), in the United States, South America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and Africa. Dr. Grand discovered that “Where you look affects how you feel.” We know that our brain is capable of incredible healing if we allow the space and opportunity to do so. Having a trained and more importantly, attuned therapist to be alongside you on the journey is part of what makes this so accessible.
