TRAUMA

HEALING

"Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls;

the most massive characters are seared with scars."

 Khalil Gibran

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ARE TRAUMATIZED?

Like the body, the mind has a natural system of self-healing under the right conditions. Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) is a physiological system that takes disturbing information and processes it in a psychologically healthy or adaptive way.

  • When the AIP system is blocked or becomes overwhelmed by a traumatic event (e.g. a physical assault), chronic distress (e.g. childhood neglect), or complex trauma (exposure to varied and multiple traumatic events), the disturbing experience remains frozen or unprocessed.

  • The unprocessed memories are stored in the limbic system of the brain, isolated in an emotional and physical memory network, resulting in dysfunctional or unhealthy coping mechanisms which can be triggered by current experiences that are similar to the original traumatic event(s). 

  • When the block is removed, the information processing system can work as designed.

 

WHAT CAN BE DONE?

  • Sadly, so many of my clients have unknowingly lived with the symptoms of trauma well into adulthood. Trauma is not something that you just get over or put behind you.

  • Whether you know it or not, it infiltrates your day-to-day life experiences and influences how you move through life and interact with others. 

  • My goal is to provide you with a safe space for you process and heal.

  • I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which is highly effective in treating trauma and other distressing life events.

  • I also use running therapyguided imagery and other interventions to fit your specific needs.

Please, don't allow your trauma to keep you feeling powerless and robbing you of a fulfilling life.
