As Co-Founders of OmTerra, Kerry and Steve provide compassionate, empathetic and caring support for people looking for long-term healing from trauma, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depression. Their approach to working with trauma follows the philosophy of biology before psychology when working with going to the core of trauma. This is done through a unique from of psychedelic therapy known as Psychedelic Somatic Interactional Psychotherapy (PSIP). In contrast to other somatic approaches, this model utilizes the autonomic nervous system’s innate healing abilities in conjunction with legal and accessible psychedelic medicines to process and release trauma.
To those on or seeking a journey with us, the biggest thing to know is – there is nothing wrong with you and there is nothing to figure out. Most people with symptoms of PTSD, trauma, anxiety, or depression are experiencing a biological process – how the body stores trauma. Many of us have spent years or even decades trying to heal our trauma through talk therapy, yoga, spiritual groups, self-help books, medicine journeys, workshops, etc., but are still dealing with symptoms. We have developed myriad methods for coping with and suppressing our unconscious feelings and painful experiences, but they remain stored in the body.The good news is that the autonomic nervous system is innately wired to release held trauma when we utilize the tools that allow our bodies to access the stored charges associated with their trauma. Kerry and Steve utilize PSIP, which allows for the body’s powerful, autonomic healing process to be activated.
