One thing we approach differently...  

Treat the problem, not the symptoms.

What is limbic imprinting?

Limbic imprinting is the emotional (and physiological) residue that gets left behind when an original emotional ‘wound’ (created by complex trauma) isn’t tended to, processed, or acknowledged. When an emotional 'wound' is left unaddressed, emotional, physical and mental health bear the weight and begin to skew our systems. The presence of that skewed energy then shows up in every area of our life and overtime, unconsciously becomes the focus. 
We are all capable of healing.

What unprocessed limbic imprinting leads to?

Unprocessed limbic imprinting is the perfect root system to create challenges like anxiety, depression, addictions, ADD/ADHD, behavior challenges, learning disorders, oppositional defiant disorder, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorders, PTSD, cPTSD and a myriad of other emotional, relational, familial, educational, legal, mental and work-related challenges - all of which are often diagnosed as a standalone disorders (Bessel van der Kolk, 2005).

Who is trained in healing this space?

Although we would love to believe that licensed mental health practitioners (LMHP) are, the sad truth is - they are NOT. At the moment, this is a grey area for the majority of LMHPs (psychologists, therapists, psychotherapists, social workers and counselors) and physicians alike. The American Psychiatric Association (APA) has yet to define this space or formally train LMHPs (or anyone else) in it, leaving the public health in peril. We are intentionally not using the word trauma because we believe it's ill defined and incredibly subjective, yet still a widely used term in the world of mental health.

Interesting Facts About Trauma

  • Most people don't believe they have/had trauma anywhere in their life because they've completely normalized the presence of it. Trauma does not have to be a gigantic event. It can be the tiniest event that grows the biggest tree that's now blocking the access you need to live your best life. Think about the size of a seed vs the size of what can grow from it.
  • Despite the high prevalence of societal trauma exposure and its link with a wide variety of psychopathology symptoms and human suffering, most mental health clinicians receive little systematic training in assessing or treating trauma (Henning, J. A., Brand, B., & Courtois, C. A. (2022). Graduate training and certification in trauma treatment for clinical practitioners. Training and Education in Professional Psychology, 16(4), 362-375. https://doi.org/10.1037/tep0000326). 
  • Although the research literature on trauma and traumatic stress is extensive and constantly expanding, most psychologists have a cursory knowledge of trauma at best (Courtois, C. A., & Gold, S. N. (2009). The need for inclusion of psychological trauma in the professional curriculum: A call to action. Psychological Trauma, 1(1), 3-23. https://doi.org/10.1037/a0015224).
  • Extensive coverage of trauma is not an integral component of the standard curricula in graduate-level education (Cook, J. M., Simiola, V., Ellis, A. E., & Thompson, R. (2017). Training in trauma psychology: A national survey of doctoral graduate programs. Training and Education in Professional Psychology, 11(2), 108-114. https://doi.org/10.1037/tep0000150).
  • The appropriate treatment for any given individual diagnosed with developmental trauma will not ultimately be based on a single fixed generic therapy, but instead on a matching of treatment components and practices that have been shown with similar individuals to best address the specific symptoms (Ford, J. D., 2021. Progress and limitations in the treatment of complex PTSD and developmental trauma disorder. Current Treatment Options in Psychiatry, 8(1), 1-17. https://doi.org/10.1007/s40501-020-00236-6) & (Ford, J. D. (2023). Why we need a developmentally appropriate trauma diagnosis for children: A 10-year update on developmental trauma disorder. Journal of Child & Adolescent Trauma, 16(2), 403-418. https://doi.org/10.1007/s40653-021-00415-4)
