Trauma can occur at any point in a person’s lifespan and can result from various experiences, such as childhood abuse, accidents, violence, law enforcement, military deployment, or natural disasters. Traumatic events can disrupt a person’s sense of safety, create emotional and physical distress, and impact their ability to form healthy relationships.
Trauma Treatment

What services we provide

Lifespan Integration (L.I.) is a therapeutic approach developed by Peggy Pace, a licensed mental health counselor. This treatment is a perfect complement to our EFT approach as it is attachment-based and unlocks a person’s ability to make sense of, and resolve blocks that can prevent healthy bonding. It aims to address and resolve trauma and attachment-related issues by integrating fragmented memories and experiences across an individual’s lifespan.

What Is the Lifespan Integration Process?
In Lifespan Integration Trauma Therapy, techniques are specifically used to address trauma and its impact on an individual's life. Lifespan Integration Trauma Therapy involves a systematic process that allows individuals to revisit and heal traumatic memories at their own pace. The therapist guides the person through a series of steps that facilitate integration and resolution of the trauma. This may involve visualizing and revisiting past points in time when suffering occurred. However, it is important to point out that it is not visiting the EXPERIENCE,. The process assists the client in visiting the SELF that had the experience. This is what makes L.I. so safe, so healing, and based on attachment and compassion toward self. The L.I. treatment process utilizes specific techniques like timeline work, resource tapping, and ego state therapy.
How Does Lifespan Integration Work?
One of the key principles of Lifespan Integration Trauma Therapy is the belief that our memories and experiences are stored in a non-linear manner and can be accessed and processed effectively through the integration of past traumatic events with the present. By working through these traumatic experiences in a safe and supportive therapeutic environment, individuals can gradually reduce the impact of trauma on their daily lives, improve emotional regulation, and develop a stronger sense of self.
What Can I Expect?
Individuals who begin L.I. therapy with memory gaps are eventually able to connect the pieces of their lives into a coherent whole. After L.I. therapy, recipients find themselves spontaneously reacting to current stressors in more age-appropriate ways. Interestingly, many individuals are able to recall more memories and fill in the large gaps of “memory loss” as the brain begins to restructure neuro-pathways. Happier memories that were once locked and hidden often resurface to create a new sense of wholeness. Clients sometimes describe the experience as an unexpected gift they never thought possible.


Family & Relational History
For those whose early environments were chaotic, inconsistent, or hostile will need many more sessions of Lifespan Integration therapy than will clients who are securely attached and who functioned well prior to a traumatic incident. In order to restructure, the client’s memory-system must disorganize and then reorganize.
Individual Factors
Individuals who, for whatever reason, did not experience consistency with their caregiver, or whose early needs were not met, often struggle to feel secure and stable in adult relationships. Often, it isn’t clear to them why they feel the way they do, but when working with an attachment-based therapist they can uncover the deficits experienced in early and middle childhood. Lifespan Integration can directly address these deficits incorporating self-compassion, opportunities to bond with their younger self, and to begin to recognize and internalize their value and worth as an individual. Lifespan Integration trauma-clearing therapy allows the client to visit the parts of self who are frozen in time. The younger ego state that has been isolated in the past often has powerful and healthy qualities to offer that can benefit the “dysfunctional self” in the present.
Sensitive Treatment
From the beginnings of Lifespan Integration treatment to the ultimate healing and closure, the therapist customizes the experience such that the client can begin to function on a higher level, return to normal daily activities, repair broken relationships, and even build new ones with a healthier, more confident view of self and others.
Specific Training
It's important to note that Lifespan Integration Trauma Therapy is a specialized approach, and it's essential to work with one of our LI- trained therapists who have experience in this modality.

The treatment has shown to be highly effective and helpful in rebalancing a person’s life, enabling them to return to normal living and higher levels of well-being.
