SE TRAUMA INSTITUTE PRACTITIONER DIRECTORY

Lynn Rae Bartoszek

SE™ Practitioner

I am a Florida Licensed Mental Health Counselor in private practice in Sarasota and Venice, Florida. I provide individual therapy to adults who desire to:

      • Resolve traumatic experiences, whether recent or in the past.
      • Address on-going stress, depression, anxiety, prolonged grief and loss, chronic pain, and/or excessive fear.
      • Attend to issues that emerge in recovery from addiction.
      • Deepen self-acceptance.
      • Experience relaxation and safety.
      • Develop and follow through with goals.
      • Clarify values.
      • Establish habits and attitudes that support wellness.

Cognitive-Behavioral theory, Somatic Experiencing®, and Compassion are the foundation of my counseling practice. 

I attained a Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling from Argosy University, Sarasota, in September, 2009. Cognitive-Behavioral theory is the basis of counseling theory taught at Argosy and the evidence-based standard for counseling and therapy. Cognitive-Behavioral theory is the base for each counseling session I do.

Somatic Experiencing® addresses the psycho-biology of stress and trauma. Since reading Waking the Tiger, authored by Peter Levine, PhD, in 2011, I have been a student, participant, assistant, and practitioner of Somatic Experiencing®. I use this body-oriented modality when addressing traumas, including physical, sexual, and/or emotional abuse; neglect; developmental trauma; unexpected attack; panic attack; medical procedures; car accidents; near-drowning; loss of a loved one; shaming and shunning; complicated grief, and other traumas that individuals experience alone or in a group.

Compassion is a necessary part of healing. Thom Bond is the teacher who is most impacting my understanding and practice of compassion currently. Mindfulness informs my understanding and practice of compassion as well.
