Develop customized, neuroscience-based trauma treatments for all your unique clients...
And become a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP)!

Adverse childhood experiences, brain chemistry, personality traits...

So many things influence how the anxiety, fear, and shame of trauma present in a person.

The horrific symptoms include substance abuse, chronic physical pain, disordered eating, relationship difficulties, violence, cognitive delays, and more.

That's why it's impossible for one approach to work across the spectrum of clients in your practice — and why it's so hard to know how to guide your client sessions.

But neuroscience has provided us with an incredible roadmap that informs why, how and what approaches can help your clients transform the helplessness, rage, and collapse from past trauma.

In my new online certification training, I'll walk you step-by-step through how to use evidence-based strategies and interventions, including EMDR, somatic approaches, and narrative therapy...

And I'll reveal the neuroscience behind each tool and technique...

So you can optimize your treatment plan, knowing which strategy will work, and why.

Don't wait! Register today and let me show you how you can properly assess clients, effectively stabilize them in preparation for treatment, help them safely reprocess traumatic memories, and develop the resources they need to achieve and maintain recovery.

Get the proven tools and techniques — including printable worksheets and in-session exercises — needed to end the suffering of your clients and move them from surviving to thriving!

Internationally recognized expert on trauma, abuse, and the neuroscience of mental health

P.S. When you complete this course, you'll be immediately eligible to become a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP)...

Giving you the opportunity to stand out from the crowd and let clients and colleagues know that you've invested the time and effort needed to provide treatment at the highest level.

AND your first year of certification is FREE (a $99.99 value)!
