Professional statement

Rama (Ray-ma) Gerig, LCSW, FSW, SEP is a graduate from University of Houston – Graduate College of Social Work. She comes to this profession with a great deal of life experience, and has spent most of her years helping others in some capacity. She believes in, and is devoted to, creating a safe and open space for clients to freely express themselves, and be curious about their thoughts, feelings, and challenges without judgment. Offering services that focus on healing the mind, body and spirit. She is passionate about assisting individuals who are seeking support to changing maladaptive behaviors to effective and positive coping skills.

Rama utilizes an eclectic approach that integrates several evidenced based interventions to help her client’s achieve their treatment goals. Areas of treatment include, Somatic Experience (SE), Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Financial Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Strengths Based Therapy. The majority of Rama’s career has been working with young adults and professionals, ranging from trauma, addiction, general and social anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, personality disorders, and stage of life developmental issues, such as sudden changes in a family system, spiritual crises, financial crises, career changes, or relationship changes, to name a few.

Through Somatic Experience Practice (SE), Rama is trained as a trauma resolution specialist integrating SE with psychological principles of psychodynamic and attachment therapy, and somatic body work. SE is a intervention that helps clients move through various physical symptoms of historical and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). SE offers effective support and psychotherapy in sexual abuse, childhood trauma, automobile accidents, falls, high global impact, and other forms of trauma.


Message to clients

Finding the right therapist that you can trust and forge a healthy working relationship with is critical to your healing journey. My passion is trauma intervention and resolution. Trauma has a multi-dimensional impact and effects each person in a unique way. Regardless of the type of trauma you are dealing with, the proper intervention, with the proper therapist can help you thrive, mentally, physically and spiritually. To bear witness to your healing is both and honor and privilege. My primary concern is to help you recover, and to become aware of your inner strengths. In part, this can be achieved by providing you with a safe and nonjudgmental space, listening to you, and customizing a treatment plan tailored to meet your goals. I promise to be there for you, and to share in your journey. My greatest desire is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life. I am happy to chat before we meet to ensure we are a good fit.

Together we can work through trauma, addiction, interpersonal relationships, communication conflicts, and anxiety management, so that you can start living a happier, stress free, and more fulfilled life!
