ART is an evidence-based treatment that provides rapid recovery by reprogramming how the brain stores past traumatic events.  Using eye movements and visualization techniques this treatment provides the opportunity to heal past trauma.

“Keep the knowledge, Lose the pain.”

ART founder Laney Roszenweig 



"A framework of thinking and interventions that are directed by a thorough understanding of the profound neurological, biological, psychological and social effects trauma has on an individual - recognizing that person's constant interdependent needs for safety, connections and ways to manage emotions/impulses."  (Crisis Prevention Institute)


Attachment-based - Every life starts with the opportunity to be secure in its attachment with a caregiver. "Security of attachment" is affected by the "sensitive responsiveness" of a caregiver.  If attachment needs are not adequately met during development, insecurity of attachment results. Traumatic events early in life can affect the trajectory of the development of attachment.  Patterns of interaction based on past trauma in relationships may result in experiencing difficulties in making and maintaining healthy relationships or insecurity of attachment.  An attachment will still exist but it will be insecure and often unstable.


Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is an intensive program that consists of one on one sessions to support skills learning around Mindfulness, Emotional Regulation, Distress Tolerance and Interpersonal Effectiveness. DBT is often offered to people diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder.  However, DBT is an excellent treatment of choice for anyone struggling with emotional dysregulation. A full treatment program would consist of group skills work and one on one therapy.  Areas studied and practiced are Mindfulness, Emotion Regulation, Distress Tolerance and Interpersonal Effectiveness.  One-on-one sessions are normally used to support individuals attending group skills. However, teaching skills during one on one is also an option. There are a number of assumptions in DBT such as "People are doing the best they can" and "People need to try harder."


ACT assists people to learn skills to allow them to stay in the present while moving past difficult thoughts and emotions.  Acceptance of unwanted feelings, along with a commitment to work towards goals assists the client to learn to navigate difficult situations, thoughts, and emotions.  Acceptance of things as they are with a commitment to make the changes they want to see.


Developing a practice of staying in the moment, and staying present without judgment is a component of ACT and DBT.  It is used during stabilization in trauma treatment or as a follow-up to ART treatment. Developing a daily mindfulness practice allows us to feel more focused, effective, and confident.
