The Quote

We use so little of our brains and there’s so much there that we can tap into and be propelled by.

What Led to the Specialization of Trauma?

I was always drawn to people who had been traumatized because of the fact that it so alters one’s definition of the self.

A Crucial Early Mistake

Belleruth shares a story of a client she once worked with who had suffered a series of traumas and that the way she had been taught to practice therapy–talk therapy–simply did not work. In fact, it was triggering.

Belleruth’s Why

It’s about meaning. It’s about making a difference.

Belleruth’s advice

  • Explore as many of the trauma therapies as possible. Try something like Somatic Experiencing; learn EMDR; look around until something feels like a match and it’s something you feel you can add on to and improve.
