Dr. Alauna CurryTrauma Psychiatrist
I’m Dr. Alauna Curry and I want you to know, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. In fact, you are far from alone; we are all connected in trauma. Through this site, I hope to offer you an effective path to emotional, psychological and spiritual healing. As a Board-Certified Psychiatrist, specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of complex psychological trauma and related mental health conditions, I have diagnosed and provided intensive trauma treatment for US Military veterans for the last 12 years.
After years of studying and teaching the most evidence-based trauma treatment interventions currently available, I began to recognize that psychological trauma was present at the core of any mental illness. Whether you realize it or not, you and someone you know is experiencing the debilitating and life altering impact of individual and collective trauma. Once I understood the predictable patterns of thoughts and behavior, and the impact of traumatic experiences on a few specific brain systems, it become clear that these numbers significantly underestimate the prevalence of trauma. Trauma has a 100% prevalence rate.
Well that’s pretty depressing, right? Well, yes and no! Because this is an opportunity to get rid of the stigma of trauma once and for all! What is the point of feeling shame for experiencing something that every person is experiencing, and feeling alone in, simply because we are too ashamed to share our stories and reshape them in a healthy way! This is where empathy, specifically having the mental skills to look at any situation from the differing yet equal perspective of another Creator, combined with a deeper knowledge of our brain’s design, can free us from the oppressive, judgmental and traumatic beliefs about ourselves that keep us stuck in a mindset that continues to recreate our most painful experiences.
My hope today is that this transformative information will trigger an ‘Empathy evolution’ in healthcare and beyond and a catalyst for a healthier, peaceful human species on Earth. Welcome, let’s get to work. The path to trauma healing is Empathy Skills Practice™ and the work begins here.

Besides natural hormone therapy, supplements, nutrition and diet, another modality I employ frequently is PRP. Platelet-rich plasma therapies (PRP) have been used by surgeons for more than 20 years. PRP is a small portion of the blood that is composed of a very high concentration of platelets, which have the ability to repair tissues via the release of growth factors. Growth factors are proteins that initiate connective tissue healing; bone, tendon, ligament regeneration and repair, stimulate the wound healing process, and promote the development of new blood vessels. Initially used in wound management, this therapy has now progressed to it leading-edge use with muscle and tendon injury, as well as cosmetic skin rejuvenation and hair restoration.
The use of growth factors is considered a “new frontier” in clinical therapy. New medical advances now allow us to harness an optimal concentration of platelets and growth factors to be precisely introduced to tissues needing repair. Dr. Tamyra Comeaux offers her unique skill with PRP therapy for aesthetics, scar repair, breast regeneration, and muscle laxity related to pelvic floor concerns.
