In my work with clients, I offer an integrated approach that, in addition to traditional talk therapy, includes mindfulness, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and the mind-body techniques of Somatic Experiencing. Somatic Experiencing uses body-awareness to restore self-regulation and resolve symptoms of trauma.
