    Counseling for Trauma

    Most people will experience trauma in their lifetime whether it’s a car accident, abuse or neglect, the sudden death of a loved one, exposure to violence, cultural and generational trauma, child emotional neglect, bullying, or a natural disaster.

    While many people can recover from trauma over time, others may discover effects of lasting trauma, which can cause a person to live with deep emotional pain, fear, and confusion far after the event has passed.

    Unresolved childhood trauma in adults can also impact stress tolerance, experience and relationships with others due to experienced feelings of shame, and guilt. 

    In these circumstances, the support, guidance, and assistance of a therapist is fundamental to healing from trauma.

    Symptoms of trauma may include:

    • Anxiety
    • Depression
    • Feelings of shame or guilt 
    • Irritability
    • Avoidance 
    • Codependency
    • Low self-esteem
    • Low stress tolerance
    • Difficulty maintaining boundaries
    • Relationship difficulties 
    • Difficulty controlling emotions 
    • Sleep difficulty 
    • Physical symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, dizziness, and stomach aches 
    • Complex PTSD (childhood trauma)

    Research has proven psychotherapy to be the most effective form of treatment for trauma.
