Standpoint Trauma Therapy
Creatively Authentic. Courageously Human.
I tell clients all the time that it is always about you and never about you. Things happen. Marriages fail. Jobs are lost. We become survivors of painful events that make healing difficult. We are not responsible for everything that happens to us AND we are responsible for making meaning from the life we are living. How we make that meaning depends on how we view the world.
Many life events are neutral, others are not, but their impact on us can make the difference between wallowing in tragedy and recognizing opportunity. We believe in healing as opportunity. When you are ready, contact us, we will be here.
Hi, I'm Dr. B. Nilaja Green
Challenge your narrative
Many of us have received the message that we can either be strong or vulnerable but not both.
Somewhere along the way, vulnerability became associated with weakness and we came to believe that if something happened to us when we were vulnerable, that means that WE were weak.
But what if that's all wrong?
What if vulnerability is one of the keys to a fuller, more authentic, courageous life?
And what if you cannot solve your problems (even your traumas), change your habits or transform your relationships without it?
Okay, so vulnerability and authenticity can sound scary...depending on how you look at them. We can work together to reframe your thoughts so you can show up more genuinely every day.
Today I invite you to show up
Sometimes we get stuck. I get that. No judgement. Life can get difficult, and sometimes a little help from a professional can make things better.

What to expect at therapy visits
Therapy is a process of growth and
self-discovery, and in my
sessions I promote behavioral transformation by encouraging authenticity, self compassion, mindfulness, empowering,
practical action and trying
on new perspectives.
At your visit, we will spend time getting to know one another, talk about what led you to seek support and figure out where we need to go next.
