This presentation will explore how a TBI changes the landscape of our brain, nervous system, body, relationships, career and our sense of identity.
Healing from a TBI is a discovery into what is possible as we face the ongoing questions that arise of who am I now in contrast to who was I back then. What gives us strength and courage on a daily basis to rebuild and start anew each day? How do we create resiliency and allow creativity to emerge and guide us as we reinvent ourselves? I will draw from my background as a psychotherapist specializing in trauma and attachment and my own experience of a TBI as a vehicle to transformation.
