Our unique approach is Polyvagal informed and grounded in interpersonal neurobiology and delivered through the framework of lifestyle medicine.

We use our minds not to discover facts but to hide them. One of things the screen hides most effectively is the body, our own body, by which I mean, the ins and outs of it, its interiors. Like a veil thrown over the skin to secure its modesty, the screen partially removes from the mind the inner states of the body, those that constitute the flow of life as it wanders in the journey of each day.

Dynamic Psychosocialsomatic Psychotherapy (DPP) at
The Trauma Recovery Institute


Dynamic Psychosocialsomatic Psychotherapy (DPP) is a highly structured, once to twice weekly-modified psychodynamic treatment based on the psychoanalytic model of object relations. This approach is also informed by the latest in neuroscience, interpersonal neurobiology and attachment theory. As with traditional psychodynamic psychotherapy relationship takes a central role within the treatment and the exploration of internal relational dyads. Our approach differs in that also central to the treatment is the focus on the transference and countertransference, an awareness of shifting bodily states in the present moment and a focus on the client’s external relationships, emotional life and lifestyle. Our approach is a comprehensive, multidiscipline and polyvagal informed clinical intervention for trauma exposure and its presentations.

Trauma exposure, a highly prevalent condition around the world, results in the development of chronic physical and mental health disabilities, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and posttraumatic stress disorder. The Trauma Recovery Institute is advised by the latest  scientific advances in neurobiology and neuroscience which have been translated into our Dynamic Psychosocialsomatic Psychotherapy.
