Towson Trauma Recovery

Releasing Trauma For Deeper Healing

Research shows 90% of trauma survivors have symptoms of PTST or C-PTSD, 75% have a diagnosis of full blown PTSD or C-PTSD ( complex PTSD ).

The fact is that ending an abusive relationship is not a normal breakup.

These relationships almost always result in cognitive dissonance from trauma bonding that can be truly difficult to heal. This requires more than just talk therapy to overcome.

Unfortunately, many therapists don’t have a good understanding of narcissistic abuse due to its unique symptoms, which are considerably different from the symptoms of ordinary PTSD / C- PTSD. This is why here in my Towson therapy practice, I focus on recovery from narcissistic emotional abuse and the PTSD / C- PTSD it causes.

I know that some of the common symptoms of PTSD / C- PTSD caused by emotional abuse include:
• Flashbacks to the good times, which leads to a feeling of pain and regret
• Constantly thinking about the good times and what went wrong
• Feelings of self-loathing and misguided guilt
• Unstable and irregular emotions
• Difficulty with focusing, sleeping, and working due to extreme anxiety

Remaining in contact with a psychologically disturbed individual for a long time can negatively impact the body and brain. It can wear anyone down, leading to exhaustion and illness.

Our brains hold subcortical structures that contain our memories and help process emotions. These structures can retain the negative emotions and energy, making it difficult to recover. When our body goes into flight or fight unprocessed difficult emotions freeze and are stored in the sub-cocrtical brain.

This is where brainspotting comes in. Brainspotting is a physiological based brain and body therapy with psychological benefits. This form of psychotherapy helps to process and release this retained trauma allowing your nervous system to return to a positive and healthy state. This can restore your confidence, health, and help you to enjoy life again.

This is an effective treatment performed in a supportive environment that will allow you to regain control as well as your passion for life.


How long does it last?

This deeper dive trauma recovery brainspotting group is held for six (6) weeks, once weekly for 90 minutes led by me in a creative flow.  Each member will be able to process individually within the collective energy of the group with some sharing if desired.

I am so grateful for Donna’s online brain-spotting group. It was more effective than anything I’ve done. She's an incredible resource for healing. This process exceeded my expectations. I am grateful for the time I invested in my trauma recovery journey.
Working with Donna and focusing on Brain Spotting gave me the ability to delve into my thoughts to discover deeper insight and healing which was something I didn’t even realize I needed until I did it. I am very grateful for this opportunity and experience.
I was a part Donna’s Releasing Trauma group during a very challenging time in my life. I was facing an obstacle that was causing a lot of intense and complex emotions related to my childhood. Being able to attend the group in the presence of like minded women was beyond helpful. Being able to process the feelings and memories that came up during that time allowed me to stay focused and engaged with the rest of my life, even when I was healing this wounded space within myself. I am thankful I was able to attend this group and that I see Donna for brain spotting sessions. I recommend the group to anyone who needs a supportive environment to process emotions and rewire their thinking.
I have discovered the healing affects of brain spotting over the last six weeks. I think it has really helped me to recognize the importance of intentional work and how I have the power over my thoughts at any given time. The work needs to be done and you have given me a powerful tool to use on my own for healing. It also gives me courage to do the work. Thank you for your guidance and sweet spirit.
The journey out of this is rich. Rich in lessons learned, rich in healing your wounds and moving forward with deeper faith, self-love and dignity.
