We feel using this trauma approach gives our staff the unique perspective and privilege to be able to join in our client’s journey when there is a past full of hurt and pain.   Given this approach, our staff can transform from therapist to witnesses.  We no longer are able to analyze or judge, but we see the client’s pain from his or her perspective and we become curious observers.
