Sarri provided Recovering from Overwhelm workshops for our team of nearly 300 mental health therapists, nurses and psychiatrists. Participants experienced it as deeply validating and normalizing during a very abnormal time. As we head into a particularly challenging time where we expect a greater portion of the population to experience mental health concerns due to the pandemic and social and political unrest, our leaders and teams have a shared framework, tools and skills to create a culture of self care.

For anyone looking to help their teams do the work of caring for others in a sustainable way during a challenging time, I highly recommend Sarri. It was time well spent and we’ll be following up by offering her journals to our teammates as gifts.

Maria Coghill - Director, Mental Health and Wellness at Kaiser Permanente Washington

I cannot speak highly enough of Sarri and her programs. She understands first-hand the trauma that clients and staff deal with every day. She answers questions, encourages questions and shares tools to use. She uses humor and makes an incredible connection with people.

Vicci L. Hilty, Executive Director, Domestic Violence Services of Snohomish County

Sarri Gilman’s presentation was phenomenal. Her thoughtful approach to teaching self-care and boundary setting was engaging from beginning to end. Our network came out of this training encouraged, energized, and equipped with tools to navigate making self-care a priority, setting healthy boundaries and what to do when we have pushback from others in any of these areas. Such a powerful presentation to support our network in the work we do as well as in this time of navigating life during a pandemic.

Washington State P2P is beyond grateful we found Sarri and the work she is doing, we are already looking forward to the next time we can have her attend another training!

Introducing the Therapeutic Trauma Response Team Sarri Gilman and Charlene Ray

meaningful quote

This summer I got a call from an agency that needed support during a traumatic event. The call and the work we did together helped crystalize the need for this service in these times. Those who do the good work serving our communities deserve timely support when there is a crisis. Announcing this new service: The Therapeutic Trauma Response Team

Sarri Gilman is partnering with Charlene Ray to provide emergency trauma and grief support to staff teams in the Pacific Northwest region. There are times in life when we need an immediate support system to guide us through the early stages of loss or trauma; an experienced team that can bring us together to listen deeply, hold space for big emotions, and create a safe and supportive space for whatever needs to be shared.

The Therapeutic Trauma Response Team provides this kind of support for non-profit organizations, school districts, health care settings, emergency responders, and companies.

Sarri Gilman and Charlene Ray are licensed psychotherapists. They have many years of training and experience working with trauma, grief, self-compassion, and crisis support in these settings. They provide a powerful. compassionate, and timely response in individual and small group sessions that starts the process of healing for individuals and the community.

If you would like to learn more, please connect with Sarri . It helps to have your plan in place so you know who to call if there is a traumatic incident.
