Trauma Recovery Therapy
Individuals who have experienced trauma may have issues with emotional dysregulation, behavior dysregulation, physiological issues, and difficulties in
coping with personal, work, or relationship-based stressors.
We help adults and children recover from enduring abuse, violence, or mental illnesses with therapy services and neurofeedback.
Neurofeedback is able to help children, teenagers, and adults who have experienced Trauma, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety disorders as well as a variety of other mental health symptoms.
Neurofeedback, also called EEG Biofeedback or brain training, helps train your brain to self-regulate and correct issues that impact your optimal functioning. A self-regulated brain improves the functioning of the central nervous system, mental performance, emotional regulation, and physiological stability.
A dysregulated brain has difficulty calming down at the appropriate moments, regulating emotions and essentially surviving instead of thriving. Neurofeedback will help to get back to your optimal functioning.
The pandemic has changed many areas of our lives. One area that mental health services have changed is through the popularity of telehealth services. One study found that about 83% of patients are planning on using telehealth services for their mental health appointments. Most clients report that telehealth is more convenient and easier to access because of limited time availability, travel constraints, and the comfortability of the environment.
Telehealth has been a crucial service to provide to trauma survivors who might be contending with child care issues, busy schedules, and desire to be seen in their own home environment. We are able to service clients throughout the state of California.
1 in 13 Americans develop PTSD, and more than two-thirds of children reported at least 1 traumatic event by age 16. At least 1 in 7 children have experienced child abuse and/or neglect in the past year, and this is likely an underestimate.
