Instinctual Trauma Response
The Instinctual Trauma Response Model used by Thrive Trauma Recovery is an evidence-based method that focuses on treating the roots of problems, rather than merely the symptoms. In this way, our clients are able to make great and lasting strides in a brief period of time. This is done by directly and intentionally recoding traumatic memories so that they finally feel like they are in the past.
Thrive director Margaret Vasquez speaks about the hope and freedom that she found on the other side of severe anxiety, homelessness and suicidal depression. Her inspiring personal story shows that trauma symptoms don’t have to be a death sentence, and that peace is not just something for others to experience.
