    How Childhood Trauma Affects us in Adulthood With Vanessa Rosage, LPC

    How Childhood Trauma Affects us in Adulthood With Vanessa Rosage, LPC

    This week we’re speaking with Vanessa Rosage, LPC. Vanessa has been a therapist for 14 years. Currently, she runs a private practice and works primarily with children, parents, families, couples, adolescents and young adults. During her time with her patients, she uses several tools to help each patient and has a foundational theoretical orientation that is rooted in interpersonal neurobiology, which aims to heal trauma, anxiety, fear and shame through the connection and relationship between people. As a trained DEEP specialist, Vanessa understands how to create safe and healing environments in the therapeutic relationship. 
    She has also completed her fourth full week of somatic experience training, focused on helping individuals process experiences of overwhelm in trauma focus on the body. Vanessa has extensive experience working with individuals who perceive the world with heightened sensitivity and experience a diversity of thought, feeling and perception that may not always fits with the way Society expects. I'm excited to have Vanessa in this episode on how childhood trauma affects us in adulthood. Check out the links below to follow Vanessa and learn more about DEEP therapy.

Love the reformed show

This podcast used to be more focused on social media and I love that it has transitioned fully to mental health and mental illness.
