"Trauma is not what happens to us, but what we hold inside in the absence of an empathetic witness.”
― Peter A. Levine
Leaders in Trauma Therapy & Addiction Counseling
If you’ve tried traditional cognitive behavioral therapy and still can’t escape feeling as though you're broken, it may be time to try something new.
Traditional cognitive approaches work hard to treat the conscious brain, where there is an awareness of symptoms. But conditions like depression, anxiety, PTSD, alcohol and drug addiction, thought rumination, and eating disorders are rooted in the unconscious part of the brain where analysis and language cannot access.
Instead of focusing on coping with symptoms, a whole-brain approach aims to eliminate them.
Somatic Therapy and EMDR are whole-brain approaches that tend to both the conscious and unconscious brain, which allows us to address how the body has been conditioned to engage in bothersome thoughts, unwanted feelings, and maladaptive behaviors as a way to regulate the nervous system. Through the incorporation of the body within the therapeutic process, we can rebalance what has been unbalanced.
Seeking Depth to Recovery, LLC was founded in 2019 on the values of vitality, creativity, connection, and body wisdom. We hold true that each person has within them the natural inclination toward healing as part of their nervous system’s innate wiring.
We were born from a desire to break the ceilings of traditional trauma therapy and addiction counseling - which often don't understand the role of the nervous system in trauma healing. Specializing in state of the art somatic therapy, we found that our consumers were reclaiming their lives sooner and sustaining changes, compared to their past experiences with traditional cognitive behavioral therapy or 12-Step groups.
As the demand for our approach grew, so did we. We created a truly trauma-sensitive treatment center, focusing first on the mental wellbeing of our team. From this foundation of health, we lend our unburdened nervous systems to those in our care, unconsciously activating healing.
Together as a team, we offer some of the highest quality trauma therapy in Richmond, VA, as well as comprehensive addiction recovery resources, including addiction counseling and substance use interventions.
