R1:99 Therapy & Classes
R1:99 offers traditional forms of therapy, such as Individual and Group Therapy for those individuals that respond well to these traditional forms of therapy. However, it has been determined through research and experience that many individuals who have experienced complex traumas in their lives have difficulty expressing themselves through their words due to the trauma itself. For these individuals we find that Expressive Therapy is much more effective. Expressive therapies include expression through art (and we don't mean professional art skills), dance, music, and other forms of expression that are not impeded by the trauma. And for many other people, including family and friends of survivors, classes may be just what they need to learn about their loved ones and how they can best help.
We now understand that trauma not only lodges itself in the brain but also the body. We have also learned that you "hold" your beliefs about yourself in your body.
Because trauma is held in the body, expressive therapies are often needed in addition to psychotherapy.
Expressive Therapy gives you an outlet that allows you to benefit from music, writing, movement, drama, and artistic expressions.
R1:99 offers expressive therapy in individual and group formats.

Perhaps you are forgoing therapy because you have felt victimized by telling your story in the past and are afraid of being triggered again. We want you to know that we will never ask you to give a full narrative of your story. It is up to you to determine what you want to tell us and when.
• Individual therapy is 60 minutes
• R1:99 uses the tri-phasic model for trauma recovery:
• Phase One -
Safety and Stabilization
• Phase Two - Processing Trauma Memories
• Phase Three –
Post Traumatic Growth
Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy that involves one or more therapists working with several people at the same time. Group therapy can be beneficial for people who have experienced trauma, as it can provide a safe and supportive environment to share their feelings, learn coping skills, and connect with others who have gone through similar experiences.
We offer a variety of classes throughout the year for individuals dealing with mental health issues as well as survivors of complex trauma. Classes are offered by non-licensed professionals with expertise in their chosen field.
