Aura Morris is a Licensed Master Social Worker working with clients on a variety of issues, including grief, loss, trauma, anxiety, and depression. Aura enjoys working with mothers on perimental health-related issues, including perinatal anxiety and depression, birth trauma, miscarriage, loss, or infertility, emotional overwhelm, and the challenges of transitioning to new parenthood.
She is an experiential and somatic-focused therapist, and she is trained in a variety of modalities and tools, including EMDR, animal-assisted therapy (not currently available), nature-based interventions, mindfulness, and yoga. To her, focusing on somatic approaches means that you will likely spend time getting outside of your everyday, cognitive approach to problem-solving, and practicing accessing the wisdom in your body, nervous system, and inner knowing. There will still be time for problem-solving and cognitive approaches when it's helpful!
Aura is so excited about this initiative and about offering help to pregnant and postpartum women. Her hope is that all Mamas will have access to trauma-informed care throughout their pregnancies, birth, and postpartum journeys. When she isn't working, she is likely gardening, crafting, or playing with her son.
