blueFire Wilderness Therapy is proud to offer highly individualized trauma treatment to the adolescents and young adults at their program. Their clinical team is experienced and trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), trauma-informed Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Equine Therapy, Brainspotting, and Hypnotherapy. Three of blueFire’s primary therapists, Charles Hancock, Lindsay Myrick, and Jake Tucker, are also trained in Somatic Experiencing from the Trauma Resource Institute.
“Trauma work is such a big part of what we do here at blueFire,” says Lindsay Myrick, LCPC. “Every client is different so we make sure to customize their treatment plan to best suit their needs. That’s why it is so important to us that our clinical team is trained in a wide range of modalities.”
Trauma treatment at blueFire is approached from a mindfulness-based lens. Clients practice yoga, meditation, and mindfulness every day in order to work on self-awareness and self-regulation. “Before we start trauma work, we want to make sure that our clients have a strong mindfulness base,” says Lindsay. “We want them to have the confidence that they can handle difficult things. Mindfulness teaches our clients to respond to thoughts, emotions, stressors, instead of reacting to them. That is key to their trauma work and healing.”
blueFire is dedicated to offering the best level of care for clients and will continue to explore and expand its research-based trauma treatment offerings.
