If you’re seeking trauma recovery, I strongly recommend looking into van der Kolk’s work (The Body Keeps the Score, in particular) and in Peter Levine’s work on somatic experiencing. Good stuff, folks. View
40'ish female who's worked in mental health for over 2 decades. I dislike the concept of "advice giving", as there isn't a cookie-cutter approach to fix all. Instead, I strive to be a mirror for people to better see themselves and find their own truths. I believe healing begins with connection, connection is borne from authenticity, and authenticity takes bravery.
