My name is Ioana Olteanu. I am a Registered Psychotherapist, Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist, and Certified Grief Informed Professional.
I am incredibly passionate about eradicating the deficit-focused view of mental health and creating a more compassionate society where people are not afraid to ask for help.
When discussing upsetting events, we can experience intense physiological arousal. In that moment, our body is reliving a trauma that we may or may not be conscious of. Our brain is telling us: we are not safe and our body gets ready to fight the danger or flee.
This heightened state of arousal can be overwhelming and frightening for clients. As a psychotherapist, I present clients with a number of coping and relaxation strategies to utilize in and outside of therapy. I also provide EMDR therapy for clients finding themselves unable to speak about the traumatic event(s) or who prefer not to speak about them. When we keep our bodies calm, we reassure ourselves that we are safe. Physiological arousal decreases significantly and we are able to come back to the present.
