Trauma Informed Counseling

While results vary, it is safe to say that a counselor that is trauma-informed is going to have a much better understanding of your situation than a counselor who is not. Part of getting results is making sure you have the “right fit” in terms of a therapist. And also, make sure you are getting educated about symptoms and what you can do about them outside of therapy. Related to focusing on a symptom, we have to realize that there is a difference between relief and having control of a situation that is triggering. Even with intensive therapy, you may still experience triggers—depending on your traumatic background. However, the aim of trauma-focused therapies, is that your “triggers” have a significantly reduced stress-response, and therefore you are able to maintain meta-awareness (also called “dual awareness”). Eventually, when faced with a trigger, you should be able to maintain an awareness that you are “triggered” and that you are not being faced with imminent danger—which can cause the symptoms to be much less than before treatment.

Ecotherapy

In the modern world, it is easy to forget that we are a part of the Earth and the larger Earth community. Ecotherapy helps resolve the alienation of psyche and Earth through a mindful engagement of inner and outer nature. Rather than isolating and treating either the human or the Earth as a “patient,” ecotherapy begins in the idea of wholeness, understanding our many challenges as signposts guiding us to proactively tend the relationship between them.

Ecotherapy restores wellness by restoring wholeness with the natural world

Numerous recent studies show how ecotherapy can improve health and wellness on many levels. Whether as stand alone coaching or as a powerful augment to counseling, ecotherapy can help you discover the centering power of nature and guide you in
