Do you feel trapped in overdrive – on edge, irritable, ready to snap?
Do you experience poor concentration or confusion, or feel easily overwhelmed?
Do you suffer from trauma related scars, nightmares or flashbacks?
Do you avoid situations or reminders of the traumatic event?
Are you suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety or depression?
If any of the above sounds like you and you want to an easier, happier, more connected life, then trauma therapy may offer the ideal therapeutic approach for you.
Trauma can alter how the brain functions, and its signs and symptoms can vary from finding it difficult to trust and being constantly on guard, to sudden panic and intrusive, anxiety-ridden thoughts. Trauma, without question, can significantly lessen your quality of life.
In fact, with trauma therapy we expect you will begin feeling better as we implement our compassionate and client-focused evidence-based techniques and strategies together. And while the signs and symptoms can feel complex and at times overwhelming, feeling better is more than possible.
A concern many people have about therapy is having to relive the stress when talking about the traumatic event. The therapy I provide takes that into account by utilizing techniques that don’t require you to talk about the traumatic event when it is too hard to discuss.
Trauma therapy combines different approaches and techniques to help lessen, even eliminate, the painful mental and physical responses raised by the memory of traumatic events and seeks to create new healthier patterns in your brain and in your body.
In trauma therapy, I will work with you toward lessening, even extinguishing, the pain. It’s my goal to identify the source and triggers for your emotional and physical suffering, to discuss ways to deal with unhelpful and unhealthy thoughts and behaviors, and to teach you techniques to manage distress and enable you to move forward.
