We are passionate about helping you become more resilient and transform your live, including any limiting beliefs you have about yourself.
Resilience is the capacity to bounce back after difficulties. Transformation describes a thorough or dramatic change.
We named the practice Resilience & Transformation because healing from trauma can lead to growth and greater resilience when addressed in a compassionate and nonjudgmental manner.
We believe that people are doing the best they can with the resources they have at the time, even when it may seem to others that they are not. When faced with discomfort, people naturally tend to seek the easiest way they know to reduce their discomfort. This often results in an over-reliance on coping skills that worked in the past, but cause problems now.
Coping skills can look like automatic behaviors such as a disordered approach to eating, compulsive use of substances or behaviors, codependency, overworking, negative self talk, worry, and rumination. But at RPTC, we don't judge you! We know you likely already judge yourself harshly enough. Finding people and places that are validating and supportive is difficult.
You are not alone. We are here to support and guide you!
Our approach can teach you how to:
• Stop judging yourself harshly
• Set and maintain boundaries with people that challenge you
• Navigate tough life situations with more confidence and support
• Process traumatic experiences that led to you feeling stuck, unable to change, and frustrated.
When trauma is processed appropriately, people tend to feel lighter, more capable, more confident, and happier overall in life.
At RTPC, our individual therapy work is informed by:
• Brene Brown, shame and vulnerability researcher
• Bessel van der Kolk, leading expert in the field of trauma recovery
• Peter Levine, master somatic therapist
• Marsha Linnehan, creator of dialectical behavior therapy, a type of psychotherapy that combines behavioral science with Buddhist concepts of acceptance and mindfulness.
