Our Approach

Island Institute for Trauma Recovery, LLC is a small group practice created around a shared philosophy for working with complex trauma.  We practice from a mutual understanding of neuroscience and of the interweaving of mind and body.  

Our belief is that the mind-body connection is integral in healing from traumatic stress. We use an integrated approach that supports restoration of a sense of safety and trust in bodies, in daily experiences, and in relationships.

In addition to our clinical work, we have a commitment to ongoing discovery of the ways our minds and bodies hold traumatic response and to creating a community of trauma sensitive practitioners.  Throughout the year we offer Master Classes in Neuroscience with nationally known experts, specialty day long trainings focusing on new applications of mind-body practice, and our own workshops based on our individual areas of inquiry.

We are currently accepting new clients with MaineCare, several private insurances, and sliding scale private pay.   Please call or email us to find out more.  Thank you!
