You may have noticed we are not listing Keep Exploring Yourself, LLC and Unlocking Resilience, LLC separately in our home page. At this time, we are ecstatic to report the news that this Summer our private practices will be merged into one shared, co-owned group therapy practice, Trauma Clinicians, LLC.

Our story began while working as Social Workers in
Washington County. During our dedicated service, we discovered it was challenging to locate specialized trauma resources because the need was incredibly vast and growing rapidly. Together, we struggled with conceptualizing how two Social Workers could truly make a difference when our community was so deeply impacted by trauma. Recognizing this important need, we invested our time and committed to become extensively trained in the treatment of trauma.
Armed with a trauma-informed approach to serving the community, we experienced first-hand how difficult it was to be a helper to those impacted by traumatic events. This led us to our next challenge - How are we to effectively combat the impact of trauma in our community when there is such a high turnover rate amongst helping professionals? This sparked our curiosity - Why would dedicated helping professionals abandon their careers? Well, it almost happened to us.
In fact, this was the catalyst behind the development of the Helpers Armor Initiative and is a driving force in our passion to preserve our community's most valuable and vulnerable resource, our helping professionals!
On February 13, 2019, Keep Exploring Yourself, LLC and Unlocking Resilience, LLC welcomed the Washington County community to join us in celebrating our vision becoming a reality. On this special day, we opened our doors to provide specialized trauma services to Washington County's children, youth, adults, families, professionals, and community systems.
What a year it has been!
This year, Keep Exploring Yourself, LLC and Unlocking Resilience, LLC have worked hard to serve community members in their mission to cope with and heal from traumatic events. Despite the barrier of working in separate offices, Keep Exploring Yourself, LLC and Unlocking Resilience, LLC worked in tandem to combat the local trauma crisis in our community. Through resource sharing and community partnerships, we focused on identifying ways to enhance, innovate, collaborate, and further grow trauma services in the Washington County community. As a result of this rapid growth and development of community partnerships, we have decided to consolidate our trauma resources to establish a central hub of trauma services. This hub of trauma services serves to ensure the needs and challenges of trauma survivors and their helpers are not only understood but also addressed, as we strive to build a stronger and healthier Washington County community.
Keep Exploring Yourself, LLC and Unlocking Resilience, LLC are proud to announce that in the Summer of 2020, both practices will be uniting and joining forces as, Trauma Clinicians, LLC. Please stay tuned to our website as we will be posting a virtual tour of our space!
