Tawny George is a Licensed Professional Counselor in Erie, Colorado who practices from a mind and body integrated approach that takes into account the importance of listening to the body and letting it lead the way to healing. Using a blend of therapeutic approaches, Tawny utilizes modalities that lead to a mind-body re-intergration that trauma has often interrupted. Blending EMDR with IFS (parts work) and somatic techniques allows the client to engage in deep and effective therapeutic work in often short amounts of time.
Tawny specializes in working with trauma, complex trauma, attachment issues, anxiety, depression, abuse and neglect recovery, and religious trauma/adverse religious experiences. Tawny has experience with and enjoys working with clients in the LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities.
In her practice, Tawny uses trauma-informed modalities that blend research-based cognitive and somatic interventions with mindfulness and self-compassion. This works to reintegrate the more rational parts of our mind with the emotional and physical parts and to release trauma stored in the body. Unreleased trauma or uncompleted actions during a traumatic experience can often manifest as negative sensations and symptoms. By employing the wisdom and guidance of the body, Tawny is able to gently assist clients in becoming curious, exploring, resolving, and releasing the stress and negative sensations that may have been plaguing the body and mind for years. Even a few counseling sessions can help reduce negative thoughts and create changes that lead to a happier and healthier experience. As issues diminish, clients can achieve their personal goals without the weight of unnecessary baggage that may have been tagging along.
Like so many others, her own experience with mental health led Tawny to want to work in the counseling field. As she navigated her own journey, she found she was drawn to understand both the psychological, emotional, and physiological sides of the conflicts we face. Her hope is that she can come alongside her clients and walk with them as they unburden themselves from unnecessary baggage and move closer to living the lives they imagine.

"Most traditional methods of working on oneself are mostly pain centered.
People get to repeat over and over their painful emotions without knowing how to use the body's own inherently positive direction and force."
