~I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker Supervisor (LCSW-S) and also a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor (LCDC). I graduated from Walla Walla University in Washington state, with a master’s degree in Social Work. frequently employ CRM, CBT, EMDR, and Brainspotting in therapy.
My goal is to help clients achieve peace and contentment by increasing self-awareness and recognizing behaviors that no longer serve them. I make it my aim to partner with clients on their journey, identify their strengths, help distinguish areas for growth, and provide clients with non-judgmental support along the way. I believe that strong and fulfilling relationships with other individuals can help people maintain emotional well-being. I have 20+ years of experience in mental health, including individual, marriage, group counseling, crisis intervention, and substance abuse assessments.
I look forward to meeting with you and through the therapy process identifying and unlocking some problem solving abilities that you weren’t aware of, or had been dormant for some time. I truly believe that we all have our answers inside of us, our own personal journey is a process of uncovering those skills and understandings.
~Comprehensive Resource Model® (CRM) is a trauma-processing modality that includes a sophisticated scaffolding of resourcing. This helps allow us to explore material that is the most painful while providing enough brain-body safety to make it seem manageable and tolerable.
The overall goal of this model is to increase the connection to self, to our highest selves, parts of ourselves we may not understand, and to self in the presence of others. I am currently working toward CRM certification.

herapy can be likened to peeling away onion layers to reach the things that are affecting people negatively.
Through CRM the person is supported to peel these layers away and are so helped to understand the way they react in situations.
In comparing CRM with therapies like cognitive therapy, the challenge is that people can be asked to talk about their fears in great detail. Some people may have to repeat their story over and over so that they can build resilience with dealing with the fear. For many people this is too much to deal with.
With me, there’s no need to talk about what happened. A person will be given skills to give them strength to face the painful emotions they’ve kept inside. Encouragement will be given for the person to focus on the physical sensations arising in their bodies and deal with feelings such as chest-crushing sadness, a hot flash of anger, stomach cramps, palpitations or feeling like one’s heart is frozen in ice. With my support you can face such feelings fully, if only for a short time, and finally let go of your buried anger, terror or shame.
Kirsten has worked with a variety of emotional stress release modalities for the past 20 years. Somatic trauma techniques including The Comprehensive Resource Model, a trauma modality that employs brain-based physiological safety as the foundation for healing (CRM, Lisa Schwarz) , Somatic Archaeology (Ruby Gibson), Brainspotting (David Grand), Heart Centered Therapy (Chikly Institute) and Naturopathy. Her goal is to help clients remove the limitations of fear-based thoughts, unresolved trauma, triggers that induce stress, and unwanted emotional & behavioral patterns. CRM (main modality used) is a very gentle process that goes deep into the neurophysiology helping to down-regulate your nervous system around the targeted issues. Releasing traumatic material from the nervous system, old patterns of thoughts and beliefs that no longer serve you, finding your joy again and experiencing a new way of “being”. Outside of work Kirsten enjoys tennis, running her dog Lucy and spending time with her husband, four adult children and two Grandsons. *Skype sessions available
Kate Nesbitt is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. She received her Bachelor of Art’s Degree in Human Behavior Psychology and her Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology, with an emphasis in Spiritual Psychology.
Kate began her career counseling children in the Santa Monica school system, working extensively with the effects of trauma on early childhood development and family systems. Kate moved from working with children and their families to opening a private practice in Santa Monica where she has focused on helping adults with a wide range of challenges, from anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder, to relationship problems and life transition issues. Kate is particularly proud to be working, in partnership with the Veteran’s Administration Choice Program, treating veterans with PTSD resulting from their military experiences.
Kate has participated in numerous trainings over the years that have added to her expertise in trauma treatment. She studied Body/Mind Integrated Therapy with Dr. Ronald Alexander for five years early in her career. This modality, drawing upon Buddhist, Gestalt and Attachment Theory psychologies, increases clients’ awareness of their bodies in order to be more grounded, and to feel and process their difficult emotions. Kate is also trained in the trauma treatment modalities of EMDR and Brainspotting.
Finally, Kate is trained in Comprehensive Resource Management (CRM). Kate regards CRM as a beautiful coming together of all of the modalities she has learned over the past 20-plus years combined with new, cutting edge techniques backed by a clear understanding of our neurobiology. She is delighted to now use this gentle system that helps to integrate the mind, body and spirit by utilizing the breath, and mindful awareness of the body and emotions, to provide clients with the possibility for deep healing from all manner of trauma.
Hello, I’m Talia DeFranco, MA, LMHCA, and I offer trauma, somatic, transpersonal, and psychedelic therapies in Washington State. I’m dedicated to supporting you in developing the skills to foster self- regulation and compassion, release trauma from your system, and re-connect with your authentic, loving Self.
I have always known that the mind body connection was a vital concept in healing and wellness. When I started working as a registered nurse in 1993 and then a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in 2003 this truth became even louder. CRM is the treatment modality I find most effective in creating the shift that lets the body re-member the trauma/attachment rupture in a way that the mind can tolerate and reprocess. I have been studying this model and using it in my private practice since early 2016 and remain excitedly passionate about it.
I am committed to personal growth and have experienced many treatment modalities. CRM has created the biggest shift for me in the shortest amount of time. Please let me show you how profound healing feels.
Neben meinem traumatherapeutischen Schwerpunkt, biete ich als Heilpraktikerin natürlich auch den ganzheitlichen Blick auf somatische = körperliche Beschwerden. Körperliche Erkrankungen hängen oft mit einer seelischen oder psychischen Verletzung zusammen. Bei chronischen Erkrankungen oder sonstigen Dysbalancen landet man irgendwann meist beim Trauma, das irgendwann erlebt wurde.
Deshalb führen effiziente Methoden zu schnellen und hilfreichen Ergebnissen. Das darf und kann auch mal schnell gehen. Ich arbeite in meiner Praxis auch mit dem Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM). CRM ist ein höchsteffizientes Behandlungsmodell für Komplextrauma, das auf neuester neurobiologischer Forschung basiert. Das Kernstück der Methode ist der Aufbau größtmöglicher Ressourcen, um traumatisches Material zu bearbeiten.

– Intensivtherapie: IntenseWoche oder IntenseWochenende = ganz viel Zeit für die Themen, die es zu bearbeiten gilt. Dranbleiben und vielleicht voll und ganz durchgehen? Für den Patienten / Klienten, sowie für mich als Therapeut ein wohltuender Prozess.
