Healing-Centered Trauma-Informed Care
Most people will experience trauma in their lifetime whether it’s a car accident, abuse or neglect, the sudden death of a loved one, exposure to the violence of war, or a natural disaster.
While many people can recover from trauma over time with the love and support of family and friends and bounce back with resiliency, others may discover effects of lasting trauma, which can cause a person to live with deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, or posttraumatic stress far after the event has passed.
In these circumstances, the support, guidance, and assistance of a therapist is fundamental to healing from trauma.
What is Healing-Centered Trauma-Informed Care?
Healing-Centered Trauma Informed Care is a treatment framework that involves understanding, recognizing, and responding to the effects of all types of trauma.
Healing-Centered Trauma Informed Care also emphasizes physical, psychological and emotional safety for both therapist and client, and helps survivors rebuild a sense of control and empowerment.
Research has proven psychotherapy to be the most effective form of treatment for trauma. I work with a combination of AIR (Adaptive Internal Relational) eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) and art therapy to treat trauma.
