Somatic Experiencing®(SE)
The Somatic Experiencing® (SE) method is a body-oriented approach to the healing of trauma and other stress disorders. It is the life’s work of Dr. Peter A. Levine, resulting from his multidisciplinary study of stress physiology, psychology, ethology, biology, neuroscience, indigenous healing practices, and medical biophysics, together with over 45 years of successful clinical application. The SE™ approach releases traumatic shock, which is key to transforming PTSD and the wounds of emotional and early developmental attachment trauma.

Post-Induction Therapy(PIT)

Post-Induction Therapy (PIT) is based on Pia Mellody’s pioneering work in developing therapeutic techniques for identifying and treating the underlying trauma of most addictive and dysfunctional processes. Childhood trauma, including child abuse, enmeshment, abandonment and neglect, is the origin of developmental immaturity, patterns of codependence, and relational issues. This model explores the nature of the child and the adult manifestations in the areas of self-esteem, boundaries, reality and being, dependency, and moderation and containment.

Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercise (TRE®)
Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercise (TRE®) is an innovative series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma. The exercises safely activate a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating that releases muscular tension, calming down the nervous system. When this muscular shaking/vibrating mechanism is activated in a safe and controlled environment, the body is encouraged to return to a state of balance. TRE is designed to be initially led by a practitioner so that the client can feel safe and supported, can contain and regulate their emotions, and can learn the exercises and proper form at their own pace. After a few sessions, the goal is for the client to be empowered and have the skill set to foster their own self-healing sessions in the comfort of their own home on their own schedule.
Cellular Release Therapy® (CRT)
Cellular Release Therapy® (CRT) is a hypnotherapy technique created by Anne Drucker, CCHt. It is a system designed to clear trauma and painful experience, without the client having to remember or re-experience it. CRT releases and clears unresolved events, feelings, beliefs, habits, patterns, and blame and punishment of self and others. The subconscious mind resides in every cell of the body, and the energy system contains the record of all previous life experience. CRT can clear experiences from many different lifetimes that may be contributing to a current condition or situation. The subconscious knows exactly how to completely heal the body, mind, and emotions. The subconscious has no volition, thus, it must be directed to do so. The mind is an aspect of the Soul, the subconscious constitutes a bridge and, thus, things held in the Soul can also be accessed and cleared.
Reiki Healing & Universal Life Energy Flow

“Reiki” (ray-key) is Japanese for ‘universal life energy’ and is also a word used to describe a system of natural healing, This tradition was founded by Mikao Usui in the early 20th century and evolved as a result of his research, experience, and dedication. We live in a world of energy that nourishes and maintains all living things. When this energy flows uninterrupted there is balance and harmony within and around us, and we experience a sense of well-being.  Reiki is a free ancillary service offered to enhance the therapy session. If the client wishes, Reiki energy is invited into the session and the environments of the client and practitioner.

Healing Bowls & Sound Therapy

Sound healing, which is also known as sound therapy, has been practiced since ancient times. The concept of sound therapy is based on the idea that every part of your body creates a vibration which resonates in a certain way. Everything in the universe, including our bodies, is in a state of vibration. When your body is out of balance, diseases can result. That is, illness is caused by blockage which stops the organ in question from vibrating at its healthy frequency. Sound healing works by sending sound waves throughout your body, which brings harmony through oscillation and resonance. This helps restore your body’s balance which in turn helps you heal.

Sex Therapy & Kink Aware Professional (KAP)
Sex therapy can address concerns about sexual function and desire, sexual feelings, sexual trauma, intimacy, and relationship issues. Kink aware therapy is a specialized type of talk psychotherapy which include specialized knowledge and training around the diverse ways in which people choose to explore their sexuality and/or gender, alongside lifestyles sometimes described and polyamorous, kink and/or BDSM. Kink aware therapy has no intention of discouraging any kink practices and distinguishes the differences between healthy BDSM practices and non-consensual abuse. It aims to assist the client in feeling accepted and understood, without judgement, and free from unnecessary questioning.
