Dawn Angel


I’m a light warrior. As a light warrior I believe in a better world on the other side of trauma. I recognize that as we cast light, we also create shadows. It’s the beautiful balance of nature. To not only seek the light but honor our shadows as well like the journey of the moon phases from shadow to light and light to shadow. As we journey the road of better health, we may come across bits of ourselves that we have never known. For me to accompany people on their journey and the discovery of the various dimensions of self is such a rewarding journey for myself. I come to my work with great passion for others healing and deep compassion for others suffering.

Compassion-Based Trauma Therapy

I am dedicated to helping my clients move through their traumatic emotional landscapes, allowing them to resolve problems and realize their vision for a vibrant, authentic self. Dawn Angel Averitt & Phases Trauma use a unique set of compassionate treatment practices that address our responses to trauma which may manifest in the following ways:

  • Trauma, resulting from abuse, falls, motor-vehicle accidents, severe illness

  • PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder)

  • Chronic pain

  • Emotional overwhelm, manifesting as anxiety, irritability, hopelessness, anger issues, or feelings of disconnection from self and others

  • Addiction

  • Relationship issues, including fear of intimacy or trusting others, sexual problems or repeating unhealthy behaviors

  • Stress due to life-threatening illnesses, such as HIV, cancer, heart disease, diabetes or immune system disorders

Also working with:

  • highly-sensitive people (HSP)

  • creatives


Somatic Experiencing works in a setting similar to traditional psychotherapy, where client and practitioner work together in a safe environment. The focus is on the client’s neurophysiological responses to their experiences, rather than just on the content of those experiences.


The focus flows between our stories and the somatic (physical) experiencing of those stories, with a clear focus on the latter. By exploring the client’s somatic landscapes, we delve into rich uncharted lands often yielding deep discovery. It is in this process of revealing that the emotional charge of trauma can be understood, experienced, and discharged in a safe setting.

It is this somatic body of memory that must be allowed to re-engage in a healthier, more adaptive way with the present and emerge into a future of hope, opportunity and joy.
