“Trauma is hell on earth. Trauma resolved is a gift from the gods.” - Peter A. Levine
The Healing Hut Counseling Center offers specialized therapy techniques that assist clients in managing and healing from the negative impacts of trauma. Trauma results from exposure to an incident (or series of events) that are emotionally disturbing or life-threatening with lasting effects on the individual’s functioning including mental, physical, social/emotional, and/or spiritual well-being.
Trauma experiences include, but not limited to:
Violence in the community, war, or terrorism
Physical, sexual, or emotional assault/abuse
Racism, discrimination, and oppression
Invasive medical procedures
Sudden unexplained separation from a loved one (loss)
Living with a family member who has a mental health or substance use disorder
In addition to holistic trauma intervention practices, The Healing Hut Counseling Center also offers Somatic Experiencing (SE), which is a body-oriented approach to healing trauma and other stress disorders. SE is used to assess where a person is “stuck” in fight, flight, or freeze responses and provide resolutions to these fixated physical states. The therapeutic goal is to increase tolerance for difficult bodily sensations and suppressed emotions by allowing the body to gently (and safely) complete the trauma response.
