The paradox of trauma is that it has both the power to destroy and the power to transform and resurrect. ~ Peter A. Levine
The field of trauma has experienced a transformation in recent years in respect to best practices in the treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Complex Trauma.

We will explore the concept of Post-Traumatic Growth and how clinicians can best facilitate this in our clients. Throughout the training, Renae will offer several resources to further guide and enhance trauma treatment. Body-based strategies to heal and reset the nervous system will also be covered, along with strategies to facilitate hope, recovery, and resilience.

About our presenter Renae: With over 10 years of experience, I have expertise in the areas of trauma & suicide prevention. I am passionate about helping people heal, find hope & reconnect with their inner light. I use a person-centered approach and a variety of tools and modalities, including Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) to guide people on their journey of healing. I am also passionate about supporting people in developing a self-compassionate inner voice, one that challenges the lies a person has been told about their worth and value. I strive to help people not only feel ‘good enough,’ but to recognize their inner strengths and to know that the answers and guidance they seek truly comes from within.
I also have the honor of serving as an adjunct professor at Alfred University, guiding a class of future mental health professionals in Counseling Special Populations as well as a course on Trauma. Along with my passion for counseling and teaching, I love to spend time in nature, walking, hiking, running or taking pictures of the amazing scenery around us. I also love to travel, write (check out my new blog!) and read, be sure to check out Renae’s Reading Corner!
