Beginning Your Journey to True Healing

The body never forgets an experience; even beyond conscious recall the body has a memory of it.

A traumatic event that has been wounding psychologically can have an extensive impact physically. The emotion of trauma gets “stuck” in your body. Traditional talk therapy alone cannot not attend to the physical manifestations of trauma.  According to Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, survivors of trauma cannot recover until they become familiar with and befriend the sensations in their bodies.

Healing Within utilizes an integrated system of treating trauma’s effects on both the mind and the body. This integrated system bridges the gap between verbal psychotherapies and body-oriented psychotherapies. Trauma is not stored in the verbal part of our brain; it is stored in the limbic part of our brain that is unable to put words and feelings to our experience.  Trauma is stored as an unconscious body memory.  Resolution begins when the body is integrated into the therapeutic process along with the mind and spirit.

The Healing Within program is intricately designed to give participants a monumental boost in their therapeutic process. 

An integrated system through experiential therapy combines techniques from:
  • Gestalt
  • Group Dynamics and Process
  • Therapeutic Assignments
  • EMDR
  • Yoga
  • Music Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
  • Heart-Centered Holotropic Breathwork
  • Spirituality
  • Equine Therapy
  • Mindfullness
  • Somatic Experiencing
  • And More

Where Do I Get Started in My Healing Journey?

Tonya took the time to really understand who I am and what I needed and what I was coming in with and met me in that place. My work with Tonya has given me a much more robust understanding of how to create and cultivate a life of well-being and health.
