The Neuro Affective Relational Model (NARM)

focuses on healing developmental,
or early trauma in adults.

In this work we focus on nervous system regulation, and enhancing somatic awareness. This resource oriented, non-regressive approach emphasizes helping clients establish connection to the parts of self that are organized and functional, while creating organization in those parts of the self that are not.

The overall focus of NARM is the efficient unity of biological and psychological functioning, building inner confidence, and a greater sense of agency—who we are in the world. The outcome is greater connection to our self and others, and an overall sense of vibrancy and aliveness.

Dr. Julie offers assistance to anyone who wants to feel increased capacity for connection, aliveness, and vibrancy in their lives. The therapeutic process to resolve trauma will assist you in changing unhealthy patterns, beliefs, and defense embedded in your body and mind.

Somatic experiencing approach

releases traumatic shock,
which is key to transforming PTSD and also the wounds of emotional and early attachment trauma.

This method specifically facilitates the completion of self-protective body responses and then releases thwarted survival energy that is bound in the body. The root causes of trauma symptoms are addressed and resolved.

This approach gently guides clients to develop increasing tolerance for difficult bodily sensations, the release of suppressed emotions, and a deepening of somatic awareness. The approach is extremely powerful when combined with NARM.

Somatic depth psychological approach

attempts to help individuals become aware of what has been cast out of their consciousness, or not yet able to be known.

Healing is linked with gently allowing what has been repressed, rejected, denied, or ignored to come forward so that the person can explore its significance, discern, and integrate, allowing for a positive transformation in consciousness. We may explore dreams and images as a means to discovering the depth of our true being.

Pranayama

The breath is the only subsystem the conscious mind can manually override.

It is through manipulation of the breath that we can recalibrate the entire system to enhance our wellbeing and felt sense of safety in the body. Breathing techniques are a powerful tool for emotional regulation. Stimulating the vagus nerve through yogic breathing techniques has a calming effect on the brain, heart and the enteric nervous system (our gut).

These three important organs have been called the body’s three brains. Breathing techniques will help us to uncover our authentic self, our aliveness and vitality, where we recognize others as our self, and nature as part of our being.
