Group Psychotherapy

Restoring Peace: Somatic Experiencing Trauma Group

Somatic Experiencing® (SE) is a body-oriented approach to the healing of trauma and other stress disorders. The SE approach releases traumatic shock, which is key to transforming PTSD and the wounds of emotional and early developmental attachment trauma.

This is a closed and ongoing group that will support its members in resolving traumatic symptoms such as anxiety, depression, numbness, unresolved anger, hypervigilance, flashbacks, rigidity, sleep problems and more. As a result of addressing these concerns in the group, participants can expect to experience improved relationship with self and others, an expanded capacity to tolerate distress and a greater sense of aliveness.
