    Trauma-Informed Care

    Our Specialties

    Healing Arts North, PLLC is a trauma-informed healing center.

    Whatever your situation is, our goal is to help you understand the mind-body connection in the healing process. We begin with increasing identity and awareness of emotions, so that we may co-regulate your nervous system. It is essential that you feel safe in your body to begin the process of healing the wounds of any emotional trauma, develop emotional resilience for future life challenges, find clarity, safety and gain back health and wellness.

    Healing takes compassion, kindness, and a non-judgment environment. You are embarking on a road to learn to release and heal the pain that has held you oppressed for years. We are releasing stigma, shame, and guilt.

    This integrative body-based and mind-based practice is a leading-edge approach to embodied trauma recovery on all levels: emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual. It will help you develop self-regulation skills and change the process of painful neurological patterns that often begin early in life and impact you moving forward. Together, we will empower you with emotional and somatic resiliency for your next life challenges.

    What is trauma, really?

    We are more likely than not to have a history of trauma. Trauma is the response to a deeply distressing or disturbing event that overwhelms our ability to cope, causes feelings of helplessness, challenges our integrity, diminishes our sense of self and our ability to feel the full range of emotions and experiences. These situations typically involve the loss of control, betrayal, abuse of power, helplessness, pain, confusion, and/or loss. The event does not need to be war, natural disaster, nor personal assault to affect us profoundly and alter our path. Traumatic situations that cause post-trauma symptoms vary quite dramatically from person to person. Each one of us reacts differently to traumatic events.

    Beginning this process can be terrifying and overwhelming. We are here for you. We offer education, support, guidance, coaching, and therapy at all levels to meet you where you are. You are the expert in your experiences.
