Trauma reaction is the inability to move the sensory memories of those traumatic experiences to our cognitive memory where the information can be processed, managed and reframed as a memory and not something that is happening in the here and now.

When we think about trauma, we typically picture a war veteran.  However, many others suffer with trauma or post traumatic stress disorder as a result of experiencing a life threatening situation, having recurring intrusive thoughts of the experience which results in a constant state of hypervigilance, anxiety and ultimately depression. The experience(s) can be a result of domestic violence, bullying, physical or sexual abuse, natural disaster, a life threatening accident, terrorism or war, which can affect any age group and stay with you for many years - hindering your ability to live up to your full potential.


Lea utilizes interventions such as neurofeedback and art activities to assist in bringing the sensory information to “words” and help the victim use cognitive reframing to make sense of the trauma. Neurofeedback can bring about a calmness to assist in the cognitive reframing process.  The “victim” can then move from being a survivor of trauma to a thriver of trauma, allowing their future to be free of intrusive thoughts and memories. 

Lea has extensive experience working with children, teens, adults, families and veterans who have been exposed to a traumatic event(s) and now live a life free of intrusive memories!


Trauma Testimonial:

The healing process during his treatment was amazing to watch as Joe’s wife and was quite the experience for Joe. He was processing memories and releasing emotions that his brain was never fully able to process. He was becoming more and more like the man I remembered every day. My husband is now able to function normally at work, and when stressful situations arise he is able to use normal methods to calm himself down instead of freaking out or locking himself in his room for days at a time or resorting to alcohol to numb himself. This treatment not only helped with PTSD but anxiety, depression, brain trauma and addiction. While he still wants to do more sessions in the near future, we both know he would not be where he is today without the treatments. He is able to enjoy life with his wife and two children without suffering from extreme panic attacks that used to lead to suicidal depression. This treatment has transformed my husband so much he now wants to go back to school so he can learn how to do it and help other veterans. He knows if more vets have access to this treatment so many more lives will be saved just like his. 

 We are FOREVER grateful for Lea… It saved his life and our marriage. 
— Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,  Joe and Mariesa
