The goal of trauma-informed treatment is not simply the avoidance of invasive symptoms or being able to talk about a traumatic event in a particular kind of way, but being able to live a life in the present with creativity, vitality, inner peace and connection.
The Chicago Center for Integration and Healing provides integrated psychotherapy on a wide range of mental health issues, such as relational difficulties, anxiety and depression, with a specialty in the treatment of trauma. A large and growing body of research into the neurobiology of attachment and trauma informs our treatment strategies. Effective treatment requires the integration of relational, developmental and body-centered approaches. The effects of trauma can be complex and pervasive—yet, with informed treatment and support, we all have a tremendous potential to heal.
Individuals who come to us for a trauma-informed treatment don’t have a problem with their past —their problem is their experience in the present.
We’ve been convening a therapist community for over six years. Learn more about our professional development events and clinical consultation
