What is trauma? Can Christians have it?
Spoiler alert: they can! The impact trauma can have if you don’t do the healing work might surprise you. In this episode of Couch Time, I sat down with Dr. Barbara Lowe to talk about how trauma shows up in Christians, the three stages of healing, and Dr. Barbara’s Heart Journey Method to trauma healing.
Dr. Barbara Lowe is a licensed psychologist, founder, and owner of Greenleaf Psychological and Support Services (GPSS). GPSS is a large multi-site psychological practice in Raleigh/Durham North Carolina where clinicians deliver the best of psychological science and integrate faith upon request, for healing the soul and renewing the spirit.
She is the owner and visionary behind the newly launched Greenleaf Training Center for Psychotherapists. Dr. Barbara also created the Heart Journey method of inner healing, which uses indigenous Christian Psychology where it intersects with conventional psychology to heal the biblical domain of the “heart”.
She is also the visionary behind Dr. Barbara Ministries, a Somatic Experience practitioner, an EMDR practitioner, a Master ART Therapist, a Board Certified Life Coach, an Educator, an Ordained Minister, a National Speaker, and an Author. Dr. Barbara Lowe received her Ph.D. from UNC-CH in School Psychology.
