Natural Responses, Not Disorders: Navigating PTSD, Trauma, and Overwhelming Pain

When the experiences in our lives become too intense or overwhelming to process, our body’s natural response may manifest as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), trauma, or overwhelming pain. These reactions, often misunderstood and labeled as disorders, are, in fact, our natural coping mechanisms kicking in to help us survive.

As a trauma specialist, I believe it’s crucial to redefine these reactions not as disorders, but as signs of a healthy organism attempting to cope with extraordinary stress. My work centers on helping individuals to unconditionally accept themselves while working through the impact of these overwhelming experiences and memories.

Understanding and Processing Trauma
At our practice, we cater to individuals who are battling the persistent echoes of traumatic experiences that they just can’t seem to shake off. By focusing on processing these traumatic memories that are causing present moment chaos, we strive to help clients find their way back to equilibrium and peace.

Our methods are far from one-dimensional. We understand that trauma lives not just in the mind, but also in the body, and so our approach is holistic. We use a wide range of techniques, from ketamine lozenges and music to brainspotting and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). We also incorporate bodymapping and nature walks, along with other experiential practices like paddleboarding.

The goal of using these varied methods is to create a safe environment where clients can process their trauma. The profound change that these tools foster happens on a deep, physical level, leading to a reduction of natural reactions to triggers or stressors. They also pave the way for individuals to reconnect with parts of themselves that they may have lost touch with due to their traumatic experiences.
