Welcome back to Therapy Chat! This week host Laura Reagan, LCSW-C interviews returning guest Robyn Brickel, LMFT about Top-Down and Bottom-Up psychotherapy methods for trauma. In this conversation, Laura and Robyn described what the terms "Top Down" and "Bottom-Up" mean in reference to trauma therapy; how each type of trauma therapy can help trauma survivors; and what types of therapies fit into each category.

She and her team bring a strengths-based, trauma-informed, systems approach to the treatment of mood disorders, addiction, trauma, self-harm, eating disorders, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, and other mental health conditions. She is deeply committed to clinical practice, professional education and better public awareness of mental health issues. Robyn is a writer who regularly blogs about trauma and trauma-informed care.
