HeartMind Resiliency specializes in the treatment of trauma (PTSD and cPTSD) and the symptoms and disorders that arise from accumulated stress, single-event traumas and developmental traumas. We sue modalities such as Somatic Experiencing, NARM, Inner Relationship Focusing, Parts Work, Safe and Sound Protocol, EMDR, Brainspotting, Polyvagal Theory and other experiential methods. All therapists have ongoing training and supervision in our Somatic Resiliency Model.
Stress creates dysregulation in the nervous system that can lead to habitual patterns. Clinicians at HMR are all trained in a variety of approaches to support the mind and body's response to stress and learn to build capacities for greater tolerance. There is ongoing support for clinicians through training, consultation and collaboration.
At HeartMind Resiliency, clinicians see Anxiety, Ad/HD, Depression, etc as symptoms of underlying dysregulation in the nervous system where there are established patterns of response to stressors in a person's life. Through utilizing a variety of experiential and somatic modalities, we are able to support shifts in these patterns so that you are not always having to think your way out of how you feel.
Therapists at HeartMind Resiliency have ongoing training and consultation in somatic modalities informed by Somatic Experiencing, Polyvagal Theory, Parts Work/Inner Relationship Focusing and other experiential modalities. The practice's trainers utilize their own Somatic Resiliency Model to teach and support HMR clinicians.
At HeartMind Resiliency we treat trauma in the Here and Now by supporting our clients to develop a different relationship to the challenging events in their past. Our somatic approaches do not require a client to relive or retell their stories, but instead we support clients to find new ways of orienting towards cues of safety and security in their lives now. Some methods used include, SE, NARM, Safe and Sound Protocol, EMDR, Brainspotting, art and expressive therapies.
Several of the therapists at HeartMind Resiliency are trained in NARM, as well as other somatic, depth oriented approaches.
Utilizing our own Somatic Resiliency Model of training, therapists at HeartMind Resiliency receive ongoing training and supervision in somatic and experiential approaches to therapy that are informed, in part, by Somatic Experiencing, NARM, Parts Work, and Focusing.
