Aspects of therapy

  • Grounding: helping you stay connected to the present moment to regulate emotions and prevent panic

  • Processing: release stress stored in the body, adapt to situations that caused stress and relate to yourself and others in a healthier way

  • Education: helping you understand how the brain and body works and how trauma disrupts our nervous system and brain functions to feel empowered

  • Social ability: improve social skills, boundaries with others and ask for what you need to create healthier relationships
