At LATN, we specialize in Single Incident, Complex, Developmental & Relational trauma, providing tailored support for those navigating trauma complexities. Our therapists, extensively trained and experienced, offer a range of trauma-specific treatments, including traditional talk therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, humanistic-existential therapy, and more. We emphasize non-traditional approaches like developmental needs meeting strategy, DBT, and energy therapy. Our group therapy, limited to 6-8 members, ensures a supportive environment, while body therapies, creative therapies, and couples therapy address unique needs. For individuals with dissociative disorders, our treatments adhere to ISST-D guidelines, aiming to address the complex nature of their experiences. We also provide referrals to trauma-trained specialists in various fields. In extreme cases, dissociation can lead to Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), and our specialized treatment focuses on addressing and managing this condition through therapeutic interventions.
Trauma encompasses a broad range of events, such as child abuse, natural disasters, violent crimes, or loss of a major relationship, profoundly affecting personal relationships, daily functioning, and mental well-being.

Symptoms of Trauma

Our skilled therapists utilize eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) to guide patients through a comprehensive process of reprocessing distressing memories, allowing them to integrate these experiences in a healthier way. By encouraging specific eye movements during targeted phases of therapy, EMDR facilitates the brain’s natural ability to heal and adapt.
Dissociation & Signs
Dissociation is a natural defense mechanism, expressed through everyday experiences like daydreaming. In therapy, controlled dissociation can be beneficial, aiding in self-exploration. Therapists may use techniques like sand tray therapy. Yet, an imbalance, especially involuntary dissociation causing a persistent disconnection from reality, can be distressing.
Levels of Dissociation
We can help you identify the level of dissociation you may be experiencing, from dissociation in everyday life, dissociation stemming from trauma & severe traumatic dissociation.
Extreme Dissociation, DID, and Multiple Identities
In its most extreme form, dissociation can lead to the creation of multiple, distinct self-identities.
Dissociation, especially when it significantly impacts your daily life, can be effectively addressed through therapy. Traumatic dissociation often arises from overwhelming traumatic experiences and serves as a self-protective mechanism. However, to move forward and find healing, it’s crucial to reintegrate the painful feelings and memories associated with past trauma into your sense of self.
Healing from Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) is a unique journey that requires specialized therapy. At LATN, our therapists are trained in the treatment of Dissociative Disorders through the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation (ISST-D), and we follow their guidelines for diagnosis and treatment.
