Trauma affects a person viscerally and can impact one’s ability to navigate the world. Trauma may include physical, emotional, sexual, and spiritual abuse; disasters; neglect; and losses. For many, healing from trauma is the heart of therapy; and we use many tools to help clients find freedom from the emotional effects of the past.
Both Anthony and Joy are trained in EMDR, an evidence-based method of helping clients process trauma. In addition, Anthony is a CSAT certified by the International Institute of Trauma and Addiction Professionals. Joy also co-leads the Healing Childhood Wounds group for adult survivors of childhood trauma and is in the process of pursuing International Certification in Trauma Therapy using the Therapeutic Spiral Model, a powerful, experiential action method for resolving trauma.
