Project Description


Trauma is a subjective emotional experience of an event. It is a personal response; what is traumatic for you, may not be for someone else. The more endangered, helpless, and unprepared you feel, the more likely you are to be traumatized.

 Types of Trauma:

  • Acute Trauma – A single event that is limited in time (a robbery, a car accident)

  • Chronic Trauma – Multiple, repeated, prolonged traumatic events (domestic violence)

  • Complex Trauma – Exposure to chronic trauma and further impacted by wide-ranging, long-term, early onset, often by caregiver (abuse)

  • Chronic stress – Extreme stress experienced during childhood (poverty, neglect, physical abuse)

  • System Induced –  Interventions meant to protect the child (removal, foster care, court)


There is nothing quite as powerful as words of praise from a patient or colleague. Here what some of them have to say!

Rachel Starr has a mastery of in-depth emotional therapeutic work. She brings to her clients her experience, skill, compassion, intuition, and commitment. I refer my clients to Rachel for EMDR when they need to process trauma on the emotional and body levels. I trust her to lead them through their journey of healing with expertise and professionalism.

ANNA BETH CARSON, Inner Child Healing Coach

Rachael is one of the most professional, knowledgeable and empathetic therapists I have known in 30 years of going to therapy. I often say i could have shaved 15-20 of those years of money, time and hunting for therapist had I met Rachael sooner. Trauma is not something all therapist are equipt to deal with effectively. Rachael has not only helped me address the root causes of by trauma but also begin to heal from it. Rachael is the best and last therapist I will ever need.
