We know wellness is possible for everyone.

At Riverbend Integrative Trauma Treatment, we follow current struggles to their root (trauma) and transform them.  

When left untreated, trauma is relived in your thought patterns, emotional responses, and body sensations.  Trauma also interferes with social, family, and community relationships that provide vital support. 

 

RITT assists you in reconnecting the internal, (mind, body, and emotions) as well as the external (social, family, and community) for lasting and integrated healing.

 

Our therapists are trained in culturally responsive, proven methods to address the many impacts of trauma. Let the therapists of RITT help you recover and feel well again. 

“Traumatized people chronically feel unsafe inside their bodies: The past is alive in the form of gnawing interior discomfort. Their bodies are constantly bombarded by visceral warning signs, and, in an attempt to control these processes, they often become expert at ignoring their gut feelings and in numbing awareness of what is played out inside. They learn to hide from their selves.”― Bessel A. van der Kolk, The Body Keeps the Score
