If you are a therapist, you might feel stuck, blocked, overwhelmed, or burned out. Or, if you are a client who is currently in therapy, you may feel the same.
Healing from complex trauma can often feel overwhelming. In turn, therapists working with complex trauma can also feel overwhelmed.
Maybe this is familiar.
My name is Sarah Jenkins and for the last twenty + years I’ve specialized in the treatment of complex trauma and dissociation.
My clinical, training, and consultation practice is especially focused on helping therapists increase their confidence, reduce burnout, and feel more empowered in their work with complex trauma and dissociation. I also provide adjunct EA-EMDR intensives and DBR intensive services so that therapists and clients can get “unstuck,” and feel relief as they move forward through clinical impasses.
Therapists often find themselves overwhelmed with challenging cases and feel “stuck” not knowing why the client’s trauma “just won’t move” or baffled by why a client destabilizes between sessions. My Monthly Consultation Groups are especially focused on increasing therapists’ confidence in working with complex trauma and dissociation and addressing any clinical impasses impacting treatment. Consultees discover how to address blocks to treatment and how to get “unstuck” in their work with clients.
I especially work with therapists working with complex trauma who may feel burned out and perhaps find themselves in “trance dances” with clients, feeling stuck. We, therapists, are exposed to a lot, and in doing our personal work, we may even find that we hold onto the core impact of those experiences even before we are aware of it, leading to patterns of painful emotions, perhaps dissociation, and even reenactments with clients and loved ones. I work with therapists and provide intensives to do healing work around these experiences.
