After you experience a traumatic event, you might start to live in survival mode. You might have difficulty focusing on your tasks, have intense flashbacks, or just feel irritable and disconnected from those around you. You might feel unsafe in your own body, and want to get to a place where you feel at home again.
Trauma can come from the subtle messages you absorbed in childhood, bullying, abuse, sexual assault, or it can be from global events like COVID-19 that completely alter the way you view yourself and the world around you. You could have generational trauma, family of origin trauma, or PTSD.
Counseling can help you cope with these symptoms, giving you the tools you need to start healing. Our therapists can help you learn to live a happy, healthy, and fulfilling life despite the trauma you have been through. We want you to know that there is hope and that you can learn to shed light on and face those uncomfortable feelings, living the life you deserve.
Trauma treatment is an individualized and collaborative process that looks different for everyone. It can be uniquely healing and transformative for each person. You will start by working with your therapist to learn where you are stuck, and set goals that will help you get from where you are to where you want to be. Together, with your therapist, you will build a toolbox of coping skills and self regulation techniques that will help you safely dive into the root of your trauma. Through that process, you will be able to work with your counselor to build a map to your nervous system, tailored to your personality and what you gravitate toward, that will help you build a relationship between the mind and the body.
