Trauma-informed Therapy

Renowned psychologist Peter Levine developed the somatic experience program to help people overcome traumatic events. Dr. Levine realized that wild animals constantly live under threats yet show no signs of trauma. When faced with a life-threatening or traumatic event, living beings default to one of four reactions: flight, fight, freeze, and reflex. The fourth response can result in trauma as some people do not allow themselves to engage in their reflex state long enough and become trapped in a heightened state of alertness. Without allowing your response to reach a point of conclusion, your mind and body constantly feel as though they are in danger and become incapable of relaxing. This is a common contributing factor to addiction.

The symptoms of trauma may not manifest for years and may result in the following
  • Excitability hyperactivity
  • Quick to anger
  • Drug abuse
  • Anxiety
  • Panic
  • Depression
  • Feelings of alienation
  • Impaired concentration
  • Dissociation
  • Attachment disorders
  • Sleep disorders
  • Alcoholism
  • Fatigue
  • Chronic pain
  • Migraines
  • Neck and back problems
  • Problems with the immune system or the endocrine system.
  • Somatic experiencing can help you process a traumatic event so that your body can release tension and recover. You may require somatic experience if you have experienced a traumatic accident, medical emergency, serious illness, abuse, violence, war, natural disaster, or similar tragedy.

    In somatic experiencing, you learn more about how you respond to trauma and develop a method to help you resolve the experience. The key to this treatment is helping you develop mental techniques that make you feel safe and relaxed.
