  • Trauma Therapy

    “Trauma is not what happens to us, but what we hold inside in the absence of an empathetic witness.” ~Peter Levine

    When we experience trauma, whether an acute traumatic experience, multiple experiences throughout our lifetime, or attachment failures from our primary caregivers, we may experience the body as an unsafe place to inhabit.

    When our nervous systems struggle to restore and reset after a traumatic event, or series of chronic events and/or patterns, our ability to feel safe in the world and interpret danger accurately can be impacted. We become easily triggered by people, places, and situations that remind us of past trauma and attachment distress even when we are in physically and emotionally safe environments and relationships.

    Somatic and embodiment therapies help you learn how to feel safe in your body, regulate your arousal, and access and process challenging traumatic experiences. 

    Over time, as we engage in and incorporate somatic and embodiment practices, our sense of self and how we relate to the world changes. We feel more grounded, connected and capable of handling daily stressors, triggers, and experiences of day-to-day life.
