Counseling for Trauma
Trauma is a complex word; mainly because the definition is so vast and variable. It is important to understand that while something may be traumatic for one person, it may not be for another.
Unfortunately, while trauma is very serious, most people do not realize when they have experienced a traumatic event. Either due to a lack of support or repeated conditioning, people rarely are able to identify when they have been traumatized. The brain however does.
When trauma is left untreated people often develop symptoms such as anxiety, depression, low self esteem, social fears, poor boundaries in relationships, and an overall loss of pleasure in life.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms or have a known trauma history, please know that there is nothing wrong with you. In therapy we can work through these symptoms and recover from any traumas to give you confidence, peace, and a healthy sense of self.
There is a moment in the session when my clients process and recover from their trauma…it’s one of my greatest joys to be a part of such a recovery.
