Physical and mental health are closely intertwined, and addressing one aspect often involves considering the other. Complex trauma and chronic stress are known to impact the body and can prevent individuals from experiencing the freedoms that therapy can bring because issues in the body are not addressed. In addition unresolved body dysfunction can show up as mental health symptoms. Knowing how to tease out these differences can be very impactful when it comes to treating individuals. In this discussion we will talk about some common mental health and physical health issues that pair together and explore ways to support clients including nutrition, meditation and other healing modalities to use in conjunction with therapy.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Understanding the body/mind connection and it’s role in mental health
  2. How body based illnesses can look like mental health symptoms
  3. Practical tools and resources to support clients to a more holistic approach to treatment

About Jennesa:
As a trauma therapist and science nerd I love to learn about the remarkable human body and its vast complexity. The synergy of nature fascinates me and ignites my soul. I am trained in EMDR, play therapy, and hypnosis. I have worked with individuals and families who have experienced complex trauma for over a decade ranging from residential, in home therapy and private practice. I currently have a practice in Broomfield where I blend my two passions of body and mind as therapist and natural wellness provider. When I’m not working I’m with my best friend and husband and our three spunky and wonderful kids engaging in whatever adventures we can find or hunkered down enjoying delicious baked goods and watching a movie.
