NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM®) Therapy
Often people reach out to me in a state of concern, disappointment, or frustration, seeking NARM Therapy to help. People are hearing that NARM Therapy is a modality specifically designed to transform complex trauma. Many are hopeful (or desperate) to get support with some C-PTSD related challenge in life such as:
- relationship conflict(s)
- stress / burn-out
With complex trauma, the same age-old symptoms, or patterns underlying the symptoms, persist. Across years, stages in life, generations and time, what is left unresolved shows up in new ways. Often the challenges we face in ourselves and our lives represent long standing patterns left unexamined.
Frequently, people focus on changing external circumstances to alleviate symptoms. New city, new job, new partner… yet, the same pain points eventually resurface. The next iteration of the same underlying pattern ensues when internal frameworks remain the same.
This is where NARM Therapy enters, front and center. Dr. Laurence Heller designed the NeuroAffective Relational Model to address the impact of complex trauma. NARM Therapy supports reorganization of internal frameworks that underlie symptoms in order to transform complex trauma.

What clients say
My therapeutic journey with Laurie began about one year ago. Back then my internal landscape was chaotic, and I was feeling uncertain about even minor decisions. I credited Laurie with helping me reestablish self-worth and inner peace. With her holistic understanding of the frameworks I navigate as an immigrant woman, Laurie was able to see and verbalize my struggles in ways that made each session an emotional breakthrough. Her resolute empathy makes it such that she is able to connect all the dots of an intricate plot to deliver impactful words of healing to her patients.
