Each program is highly specialized with therapy tools

and methods that will best meet your unique needs


Pacific Counseling and Trauma Center commits to healing your suffering from unresolved emotional trauma with the most cutting edge and evidence-based trauma therapies available. Unlike traditional "all talk" therapy, we blend in progressive trauma modalities that release the survival terror from your body. Talk therapy simply does not work for trauma and PTSD because the trauma and terror is held in a part of the brain that talk therapy cannot reach.


We are a goal-oriented center! At your very first intake session we make a comprehensive list of all your therapy goals, a list of each trauma you need to heal, and a list of every negative belief you hold about yourself. Our goal is to reach every one of your therapy goals, to bring every trauma to a place of neutrality, or no disturbance, and for you to no longer believe your destructive thoughts about yourself. We proactively measure the progress made in each of these areas every week.  When all these measurable goals have been accomplished your therapy is complete. We celebrate with you the deep healing you have achieved and prepare you to move back into your life with a new sense of self-love and peace. You will feel a lightness of being as you are finally free of the heavy burdens you had been carrying with your unresolved trauma.


To facilitate your success, we hand select your team of therapists, the therapeutic modalities to be used, and the components of your treatment plan. This is based on your individual wants, needs and requirements. We are flexible and will continually monitor and shift your program as your needs and goals change. 


Pacific Counseling and Trauma Center is unique in that it specializes in healing the underlying pain leading to self-destructive behaviors, destroyed self-esteem, addictions, and mood disorders...unresolved TRAUMA. Highly specific treatments provided by professionals with exceptional trauma therapy skills as well as clinicians with very niche areas of expertise are used exclusively instead of the generic approaches seen in most facilities. That is why we have such outstanding results.


The Post-traumatic Stress Disorder Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at Pacific Counseling and Trauma Center is structured to prevent even partial PTSD relapse. Trauma based disorders pose numerous special challenges
due to how many emotional triggers exist in everyday life.  Many of the challenges inherent in eradicating PTSD symptoms differ from those seen in other disorders and require very unique and specialized interventions. The PTSD IOP was developed to specifically meet these needs.


The Posttraumatic Stress Disorder IOP is designed achieve long-term remission of our patient’s PTSD, Anxiety, and Depression symptoms and to achieve full treatment success. As the survival terror, inherent in PTSD, is released and healed, self-love, hope, and the achievement of sobriety from substance and behavioral addictions becomes possible. Our clients report feeling a deep sense of peace and experience a return to who they were before human beings hurt them and their trauma(s) occurred.

These programs are customized based on your individual needs. Clients will choose from the above treatment options to create a comprehensive treatment plan just for you. 



At Pacific Counseling and Trauma Center, we understand the impact that trauma and mental health disorders can have on your family. Our Family Program is designed to include family members into therapy sessions. Often family members do not know how to effectively support their loved one who is reeling in the aftermath of trauma. Without knowing it they may say and do things that are harmful to their traumatized family member. The Family Program educates the family about trauma, and gives the family effective tools to support their loved ones and coping skills for the whole family.




Whether you live out of town, or you prefer to stay in a supportive environment, we can help you find your housing during your intensive treatment with us. Clients enrolling in the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) can live in one of several local sober living houses. These houses offer a safe and semi-structured sober environment with group activities and 12-step meetings during the evenings and weekends and 24-hour staff support for anything that you may need. Once you sign up for our program, our staff will help you to find the best housing for your needs and contact the houses on your behalf.

When searching for an all day Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for my daughter, my wife and I became very discouraged at the lack of suitable programs in our region. My daughter was overcoming the impacts of significant trauma in her life and our family needed a program that would help her transition and complete her healing after a prolonged stay in a residential facility.  

Our hopes began to rise when we heard about a new IOP program being offered by Pacific Counseling and Trauma Center.  After meeting with Lisa Larson and her team, we knew our prayers had been answered.  Lisa and the team put together a program detailed to both the mental and spiritual needs of our daughter with a deep understanding of her specific trauma.


The family was also included in the program, recognizing that trauma impacts more than just the individual and that everyone needed to be a part of the healing process. The results of the program were nothing short of a miracle.  The daily sessions were sometimes very painful, but absolutely rewarding as we began to see the weight from the trauma lifted and light return to our daughter’s eyes.


My daughter has since completed the program, started college, made new friends, and is planning for a bright future.  We have our daughter back, which is something I couldn’t have imagined a few short months before. We owe a great deal to the team at Pacific Counseling and Trauma Center and hope their programs can continue to bless the lives of many others who are in crisis and in search of healing.” - A grateful father
