Dr. Karol Darsa’s Philosophy

Trauma = Disconnect

Trauma harms the mind, body, and soul, resulting in dissociation, depression, anxiety, addiction, chronic pain or a sense of loss. Traumatic experiences disconnect people from themselves and may create a sense of self-blame and hopelessness.

Dr. Darsa understands that trauma disconnects us from our whole self.

Healing = Reconnect

Reconnecting to one’s self is vital to trauma therapy. Awareness, validation, and empathy heal shame, judgment, and hopelessness. When a person moves on from the past and focuses on the present, they can reconnect with their whole self and overcome trauma.
Dr. Darsa believes that living in the present is the key to mending your relationship with yourself.
Healing is a constant process.
