CORE Trauma Healing Center, Inc.

at Lake Pocotopaug in East Hampton, Connecticut

CORE recently received federal recognition as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization!

We are excited to begin launching services to address Professional Post-Traumatic Stress Injury - Pro-PTSI. 

There are some professions that are inherently saturated with traumatic experiences, including first responders, emergency departments and the criminal justice system. Cumulative exposures to traumatic experiences can lead to post-traumatic stress. This response is an injury and it effects the entire physical body. The brain is an ACTUAL PHYSICAL ORGAN. There should not be separation of body and mind. Trauma impacts the brain, nervous system and all organs connected with the vagus nerve.

It's not just in your head. It's not mental illness. You are not broken. It's an injury and it can heal.

1. CORE is a collaboration of private practice professionals to provide trauma-informed services to support and promote your healing from psychological trauma and PTSI in a private, peaceful environment.
