My Profile

"The beauty of the world ... has two edges, one of laughter, one of anguish, cutting the heart asunder." - Virginia Woolf


Dr. Patricia Celan is a resident physician in psychiatry with an interest in trauma recovery. Her personal experiences with trauma led to her realization that standard psychiatry is inadequately trauma-informed and can sometimes cause more harm than good to traumatized individuals. Subsequently, she explored additional education in more trauma-informed practices.


"Keep fighting for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth." - Molly Ivins


She sought out training as an integrative trauma practitioner (ITP-2) in mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), somatic techniques, inner family systems (IFS), sexual trauma healing, and integrative eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). Her approach to coaching patients and clients through trauma is also influenced by her certification as a yoga teacher (YTT-200) and a laughter yoga leader (CLYL) after training with the founder of laughter yoga, Dr. Kataria.


"At the height of laughter, the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities." - Jean Houston 


Dr. Celan's goal is to ensure that she supports patients and clients in an uplifting, positive, evidence-based, neurodiversity-affirming, trauma-sensitive manner. To sign up for her online trauma coaching waitlist from anywhere in the world, visit her website.


"Let there be more joy and laughter in your living." - Eileen Caddy
