Individual therapy for trauma in our San Francisco counseling practices
Often a client comes to us initially for one reason, and sexual abuse or trauma comes up later. We work at each person’s pace. With the development of Brainspotting developed by David Grand and Lisa Schwarz, we are able to access the parts of the brain that hold good and bad memories from the past. With the help of the therapist, you are able to create resources to help you deal with traumatic experiences from the past. We all hold trauma because being born is traumatic.
Things men and woman have hidden all of their life frequently are expressed in our sessions.
We work with dreams and nightmares, showing how disturbances are held in the body and providing a means for releasing them.
We believe that all people are part of a larger group, be it family, spiritual, friends, or work. I like to know where a client is coming from to determine how best to be of help.
Often members of an extended family or group are invited to therapy sessions to work on a client’s specific issues. I have even lived with a group or family to help resolve difficult problems.
