  • Eating Disorders
  • Substance Abuse & Addiction

What This Service Provides

This service helps individuals to address their past trauma, understand the role it plays in their current life experience, and know how to spot, interrupt and change problematic mindsets and behaviors rooted in that trauma.

Working one-on-one, the Trauma Recovery Practitioner will help you heal your past trauma through techniques such as:

  • Awareness of body, thought, sensory experience, and emotions
  • Mindfulness
  • Expressive art
  • Exploration of how you experience, process, and react to mental, emotional and physical triggers

You will learn to identify your personal thresholds for various external and internal stimuli and become aware of your own physical, mental and emotional responses in order to stop and/or change your reactions before they become problematic.

This service accepts private payments, cash or credit card; no insurance billing is available. Call or text Julie Hatzell (530-927-5873) to see if Trauma Recovery Treatment is right for you and/or to schedule an appointment. Treatment is provided at PRS’ Business Office in Quincy and can be arranged in Chester, Greenville or Portola as well. Services are also available via remote, online access.
