Mend Therapy

Integrative Support for Trauma & Chronic Pain

 

Healing & Wholeness After Trauma

Mend Therapy is a collaborative practice of bodyworkers and psychotherapists dedicated to one idea: there is healing and wholeness after trauma. Trauma disconnects us. It distances, divides, disintegrates. It creates the illusion of separation in our relationship between body and mind, between ourself and those we love, challenging our very sense of belonging in and to the world.

Coordinating Care of the Mind With Care of the Body

Too often traditional psychotherapy fails to address the heart of the problem. Connecting body and mind is not a practice that any single form of therapy alone can address. By offering true collaboration across a spectrum of body and mind modalities, Mend Therapy brings true integration to the treatment of trauma.

 
 

Psychotherapy

Meaningful Change for Individuals, Couples and Families

When trauma is present we are often too easily triggered and emotionally reactive to bring this acceptance to ourselves and our relationships. At Mend, we provide the support and expertise necessary to help clients create truly sustainable change even in challenging circumstances.

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.”
— Humanist psychologist Carl Rogers
 
 

Somatic Experiencing®

Trauma Therapy that Starts in the Body

Somatic Experiencing® (SE™) recognizes one essential fact about trauma that traditional psychotherapy often misses — trauma starts in the body. SE™ offers a process that is gentle, effective and informed by the latest in scientific research.

 
 

Rolfing® & Bodywork

Listening to the Body to Heal the Mind

At Mend Therapy, we offer Advanced Rolfing® and bodywork to offer the body a chance to speak, to rest, and to heal. We offer a fully integrated biopsychosocial model of care that recognizes we stand the best chance to change our bodies when we are able to change our minds.

“The Body Keeps the Score.”
— Bessel van der Kolk
