#Sexual Assault Awareness Month

I’m talking to Mary Reigel an experienced  Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT). and Trauma  Recovery Specialist who has been working in the field of death, grief, and trauma about how to recover from trauma. 

Can you ever fully recover from trauma? What does recovery look like? 

We talk about the fear that so many trauma survivors carry of going to therapy and having to re-experience the trauma in order to “recover from it.” Mary Reigel talks about trauma-free, trauma recovery. New and emerging trauma therapy treatment methods.

We also define trauma. What is trauma? Big trauma, small trauma. And how trauma shapes our brains, and how we are completely affected by what we’ve lived through. And how trauma has real, emotional, physical, and social consequences. 

Mary Reigel, LMFT, with over 36 years of experience helping people, has seen an amazing increase in the positive outcomes achieved in informed psychotherapy practices. These improvements are a result of the accumulation of knowledge, experience, and cutting-edge therapies. 

Mary helped individuals and organizations. In time she was working side-by-side coroner investigators, police, EMS, and firefighters in the big and little disasters that impact our lives. She knows that no amount of money or job title can immune us from life's sorrows. She also knows that people can recover with a solid sense of well-being.

Though Mary is a full-time psychotherapist, she is also the founder of the Grief STEPtm Programs and its Say the Right Thing and Do the Right Thing Trainings, and an Approved Consultant for EMDRIA, Certified in EMDR treatment for trauma, Certified in Clinical Hypnosis, and an approved trainer for the ICISF.

Mary talks about trauma, recovery, hope. How you can heal and turn your pain into purpose.
