The Body Keeps the Score: Emotional Abuse & Generational Trauma

Listen Now On...


Deanna is a post-master’s therapist specializing in trauma. She works with children, teens, and adults from a trauma-informed existential approach. Her movement, The Feeling Theory is all about the idea that we need to feel in order to heal. DeAnna provides a safe space where there are no wrong feelings and people can heal from their trauma by embarking on a unique feeling journey. 

DeAnna creates psycho-educational videos of TikTok and Instagram where she breaks down evidenced-based therapeutic interventions that individuals can use on themselves to help guide them on their feeling journey. She has published a 30-day abstract mental health journal that is available for purchase, and she is currently working on a surviving emotional abuse seminar and a self-concept master class.

Today DeAnna and Emily discuss the effects of emotional abuse and how emotional abuse directly correlates to physical abuse. DeAnna also shares some helpful tips and resources to help those who may be in an emotionally abusive situation.
