In this episode, we dive deep into the heart of trauma, its profound impact on our lives, and the transformative power of therapy.

Janet Bayramyan, a licensed clinical social worker and a certified EMDR, and brainspotting psychotherapist explains a range of therapeutic approaches. We discuss how these therapies work not just to heal but to fundamentally change how we process our past experiences, the nuanced ways in which trauma can manipulate our choices, and recognizing and managing trauma.
