Trauma blocks Love.
Love heals trauma.

Trauma activates an internal cascade of reactions that blocks love, connection, and creativity; and in turn, love has the power to transcend trauma, heal our pain, and reconnect us to our Self, our source, and to each other.

Transcending Trauma

Hope and light are on the horizon to help clients overcome the challenges of healing and releasing the pain of relational trauma.

The highly acclaimed Transcending Trauma explores a unique, compassionate, and evidence-based approach to resolving complex and dissociative trauma. In this transformative book Frank Anderson, MD, masterfully details an IFS path to therapy that allows clients to access their inherent capacity for healing – called Self-energy – while also helping them welcome, as opposed to manage, the extreme emotions frequently associated with trauma.
