Falling out of regulation can happen when our attachment and connection cues are missed by a partner or important family member. Chronic misattunement or neglect childhood can result in a default state that is: buzzing with anxiety, spaced out with dissociation, or lethargic with lack of containment. These are all states of ANS dysregulation the resolution of which can also help resolve attachment wounding.
I chose the name Sub Rosa because it honors the Western mystical tradition of individuation, or the process of opening conscious communication with intuition to become more whole. This tradition is based on the knowledge that every person has the potential to transform through their own inborn wisdom. Our approach at Sub Rosa is to support you to choose how experiences shape you, to create with your environment, and to free your imagination.
The goal of individuation is to become who you truly are, separate from unconscious identification with anything outside of yourself. It is to actively remain in the flux of opposites, because wholeness is found in the union of opposites, or non-dualism. When we commit to the long-term process of showing compassion and forgiveness toward ourselves rather than punishing and harming ourselves, this gives us the strength to look at our shortcomings and know ourselves more completely.
Helps with: Healing developmental traumas, or habitual misattunement from parents and caregivers; Resolving shock trauma; Lowering the need for addictive patterns that are strategic protectors against overwhelming emotion and sensation; Allowing the healthy self-defensive response to re-emerge if suppressed, leading to better relationships and greater capacity for intimacy; Noticing our individual body experience of anxiety and depression and learning to care for it as it arises.
A harm-reduction approach that helps clients create an optimal relationship to substances, which may mean reduced or safer use, more controlled use, or none at all. I encourage you to use your motivation to make specific changes in your relationship with substances by using your own assessment of the place substance use has in your life. Before you can decide how to change this relationship, you must be clear about how your current use is problematic, if indeed it is.
Trauma has been called a disorder of not being able to be present. The symptoms of dissociation from trauma may show up as feeling distant from the world and distant from the felt sense of the body. Somatic experiencing is a therapeutic system that slowly engages traumatic content so that it can be re-experienced in the present as manageable. Learning to travel from unpleasant sensations and emotions to regulating and neutral sensations, creates nervous system regulation and resilience.
Falling out of regulation can happen when attachment and connection cues are missed by a partner or important family member. Chronic misattunement and neglect from childhood can cause habitual dysregulated states like "buzzing with anxiety," "spaced out with dissociation," or "lethargic with lack of containment," to become our default states. Somatic experiencing helps clients discover what their regulated state feels like, and provides tools to restore it when it is out of regulation.
