My practice focus as a psychotherapist is helping improve the flow of your nervous system (which can go wonky with trauma). What does "effective therapy" look like?
No matter where you find your system today, applying certain brain science principles will bring your body and mind into more balance. The key is what's called "integration," where you are separating (differentiating) then linking systems: feelings, imagination, sensation awareness, memory, your narrative, and so much more.
