Trauma Symposium Plenary 

Conscious Integration: The Trauma Therapist’s Role in Shaping the Future of Humanity

When: April 29th, 2022 / Times TBA
Location: Sacramento, CA (In-Person)
Fee: TBA

Description: Trauma-informed therapy is a living example of integrative medicine and a roadmap for the future of humanity. It’s an exciting specialty to be involved in right now – bright, alive, and rapidly evolving. This growth is driven by a movement toward integration of vast areas of human knowledge, experience, and expertise including (but not limited to): neurobiology, psychobiology, attachment, epigenetics, chemistry, quantum physics, Indigenous and ancestral knowledge, eco-studies, and theories of mind, learning, and consciousness. What we are discovering, in our little corner of the mental health world, is that no one model or lens, and no single person, is going to lead us home. Instead, the answers lie in our ability to operate as a collective and collaborate. Join me in exploring this hopeful moment in the evolution of trauma treatment by stepping into the field, listening to one another, and experiencing the capacity of our group mind to lead us forward into something greater than the sum of our parts.

In this talk I will paint an integrative picture of trauma and trauma treatment by linking together desperate pieces of information from multiple disciplines and sources. Along the way, I hope to inspire you to join the movement, live a more integrated life yourself, and celebrate the capacity of human beings to transform through internal and external collaboration!

I am passionate about educating mental health professionals about trauma-informed therapy and the positive impact it can have on clients. This way of working sheds light on seemingly intractable cases and stuck symptoms.

I teach and consult on the following subjects and themes:

Understanding Difficult Symptoms and Implementing Cohesive Treatment Plans and Effective Interventions:

For Clients Who Struggle With:

  • Anxiety and/or Panic Attacks
  • Relationship/Intimacy Problems
  • Chronic Stress or Life Chaos
  • Overwhelming Emotions
  • Unresolved Grief
  • Painful Indecision/Self-Doubt
  • Emotional Numbness
  • Addiction
  • Low Self-Esteem
  • Disassociation
  • Loneliness/Isolation

Understanding the Impact of Trauma and Neglect

For Clients Who Have Experienced:

  • Attachment Failure / Insecure Attachment
  • Intense History of Neglect and/or Abuse
  • Divorce and Family Separation
  • Traumatic Loss
  • Medical Trauma
  • Sexual Assault
  • Domestic Violence
  • Criminal or Community Violence
  • Displacement
  • Exposure to War and/or Natural Disaster

Trainings, workshops and presentations can vary in length. Usually, a training or presentation that is between one and a half to three hours long can be effective, depending on the topic.

Contact me to book a training, a talk, or a consultation for your particular group. I would be happy to discuss your group’s goals/needs.
