Trauma Counseling

Overcome the Pain of Past Experience

“I just want a life worth living.”

Trauma is not a life sentence. Your body is made to move forward and release the pain of the past. 

Untreated trauma shows up through:

Please do not suffer any longer.

Neuroscience and Somatic Therapy have evolved over the past few decades with powerful and innovative ways to resolve and heal past traumatic experience. By working through the body/mind connection, we can heal the impact of trauma. 

What is trauma?

Trauma happens when we experience terrifying, shocking or life threatening events. All humans have a unique ability to get past a traumatic event and continue on with living, but we will struggle for years with the devastating impact of trauma. We will suffer with related illness and conditions like Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). 

Often underlying issues like depression, anxiety, ADHD, and stress and unexplained body pain are unresolved trauma. We will bury painful memories, yet, over time the stress on our body and mind becomes overwhelming. Our lives may fall apart, our relationships suffer, our ability to keep on going lessens dramatically.

Untreated trauma can impact us in many ways. It radically alters how we relate to others, the world and to ourselves. It can devastate our lives, our bodies and our spirit. One of my clients put it best when he said “there is nothing in my life that isn’t impacted by my trauma.”

What causes trauma?

  • Abuse at any time in life- physical, emotional, sexual
  • Natural disasters
  • Covid 19 pandemic
  • Car accidents
  • Crime
  • Domestic violence
  • Losing someone close to you
  • Witnessing something scary
  • Illness, surgeries, diseases
  • End of a relationship
  • Bullying
  • Overwhelm of world events
  • Negative cultural issues/beliefs

There is Healing.

Over the past few decades the field of psychology, and specifically the field of somatic psychology, has uncovered powerful, innovative and effective therapy for trauma. 

My work incorporates many of these modalities along with mindfulness, Hakomi Therapy, Depth Psychology, Attachment Theory, Shamanism, Reiki and other psycho-biological disciplines. Everyday I work with people who have been through a myriad of traumatic events in their lives, and am privileged to help them heal. 

Somatic Work is the only therapeutic modality that touches trauma. The body is the key.
