Long after a traumatic experience is over, our survival or fight/flight response may be reactivated at the slightest hint of danger. Dreams, smells, tastes, conversations or disturbing memories can mobilize specific brain circuits which results in the secretion of massive amounts of stress hormones.  This precipitates unpleasant emotions, intense physical sensations and impulsive and aggressive actions.  Feeling out-of-control, survivors of trauma often begin to fear that they are damaged to the core.

I have spent years working with those who suffer from trauma/stressor related disorder, including Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome.  I have been trained by Bessle Kan Der Kolk who wrote the book “The Body Keeps the Score” and I  utilize his teachings when working with adults and children who have survived trauma.  My goal with clients who have suffered trauma is to find a path forward, beyond the trauma, to a life that can be fully experienced and enjoyed.
