If you think either you or a loved one may have trauma or PTSD, then fill out the form below, and I’ll send you back a short evaluation. There is no further obligation.

We all know about the big “shock” traumas that can cause PTSD–assaults, war, car accidents, etc. What this questionnaire tries to do is find those traumas that aren’t so obvious yet can have an impact on your life. Sometimes they are physical symptoms or behaviors you have lived with all your life. And sometimes they are disturbances that erupt in adulthood.

This questionnaire also asks if you have any chronic illnesses. Many of these are signs of earlier traumas.

After you submit the form, I will evaluate it and email you a response within a few days.

(You can fill this form out either for yourself or for someone else.)

What It’s Like Working With Larry

“I received a somatic experience session with Larry and found it a deeply beneficial venture. My session with Larry took me out of my ever-analyzing mind and into my body and my heart. The result was a profound relief and settledness that I felt in an energetic way, not in a way I can explain with words or mental logic. This (somatic experience) may be a way for me to grow beyond my barriers and if Larry were based in the Seattle area he’d be my number one choice of practitioner because I felt so safe. As it is, I await his next adventure to the Pacific Northwest.” ~ Debra Oliver, Seattle, WA, 10/02/2011

After receiving feedback from your questionnaire, you may want to take the next step–a free, 20 minute, initial consultation. This will be a gentle consultation in which we will talk by phone to determine if you may have trauma or PTSD and could benefit from treatment. We will also have a chance to see if we are a good fit for further work. Along with the feedback, I will tell you how we can set up a time when we can talk.

If you are interested in a private consultation, click here. Or call 562-279-3123.

My practice is in Long Beach, CA where we can work face-to-face and possibly incorporate touch (table) work. But I also work over the phone or through Skype.

In addition to my practice above, I also work with Family Systems and lead Family Constellations in Long Beach, CA and throughout the country.
