Trauma-Informed Therapy

(Individual, Family, or Group)

Trauma-informed therapy focuses on creating a safe and supportive environment for individuals, families, or groups who have experienced trauma. It emphasizes understanding the impact of trauma on emotional and psychological well-being and incorporates principles of safety, trustworthiness, empowerment, collaboration, and cultural humility into the therapeutic process. Journeyers engage in therapeutic approaches intended to help process their experiences, build coping skills, and foster healing within a supportive community.

Trauma-Focused Therapy

(Individual, Family, or Group)

Trauma-focused therapy builds upon the foundation of trauma-informed care by offering interventions specifically designed to address the effects of trauma. This form of therapy utilizes evidence-based techniques, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), and narrative therapy, to help individuals process traumatic memories, manage distressing symptoms, and develop healthy coping mechanisms. Journeyers collaborate with their specialized therapist to create personalized treatment plans tailored to their unique needs and goals, with a focus on promoting resilience and empowerment.

Specialized Trauma-Focused Therapy

(Individual, Family, or Group)

Enhanced trauma-focused therapy represents the most intensive level of care offered here at Journey. STF treatment is specifically designed to meet the needs of individuals from New Majority populations, including LGBTQ+, BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color), people living with disabilities, New Americans, and other marginalized communities. This specialized therapy acknowledges the intersecting identities and unique experiences of clients from diverse backgrounds and incorporates culturally responsive approaches to treatment. Therapists receive additional training and expertise in addressing issues related to identity, discrimination, social justice, and systemic oppression. The goal is to provide a safe and affirming space for Journeyers to explore their trauma within the context of their cultural, social, and historical experiences, while also addressing systemic barriers to healing and empowerment. Specialized trauma-focused therapy is available in individual, family, or group formats to accommodate different preferences and needs of clients from New Majority populations.
