The Different Ways We Can Work
BRIEF SOLUTION ORIENTED TRAUMA RESOLUTION (BSOTR)
Brief & Effective Trauma Resolution
BSOTR (Brief Solution-Oriented Trauma Resolution) is a highly sophisticated skill to extinguish body memory of trauma. It works in one-to-two sessions to extinguish somatic symptoms of trauma (flashbacks, startle reaction, nightmares), that works on virtually any and all trauma.
In traditional talk therapy, trauma is resolved by desensitizing a person to the painful events of their past. BSOTR is different in that there is no need to retell and relive traumatic events. With only the most basic of details, your therapist will guide you to take control of your past, heal your younger Self, and empower your current- and future Selves.
This service is currently being provided via telehealth through a secure video provider. BSOTR treatment begins with an initial 60 minute assessment to get to know you and your past and your current situation in detail.
