Trauma and Recovery, is a weekly psychotherapy group for adults. It is a group for anyone who has suffered though the effects of relational trauma. The program uses experiential methods such as Dr. Tian Dayton's Relational Trauma Repair (RTR), along with psychodrama.
The program sequence includes 1) Ice Breakers, 2) Warm-ups, 3) Initiatives, and 4) Games. Events will usually last anywhere from 3-6 hours. Activities occur in a progression with tasks becoming more difficult to achieve. Participants will learn to use previous knowledge in the group toward overcoming new problems with adequate solutions.
It is helpful to be able to pull from a variety of approaches that work. I believe in the uniqueness of the individual and that treatment should be personalized for the treatment of the client. Therapeutic approaches I utilize include; Person Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Focused- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Adventure Therapy, and Psychodrama. I have an interest in using Psychodrama as an assimilative form of integration to promote it's use along with Evidence Based Treatments (EBT's).

If you are seeking help for emotional wellbeing then you may find psychodrama and, other action methods to be beneficial. Healing can be found when you encounter community. J.L. Moreno M.D., the creator of psychodrama, sociometry and group psychotherapy, believed that each person could be a "therapeutic agent" of another person.
