Have you been thinking about seeking help through trauma counseling?
You just went through what is probably the toughest moment of your life. Trauma can be a deeply disturbing event that affects you long after the event itself has passed. Just when you think you have overcome the trauma, you find that you are still struggling. You may be asking yourself over and over, “When will I feel like myself again?” Or maybe you are worried about a loved one who seems "off" since experiencing a traumatic event.
Your traumatic experience may have taken place many years ago, but it feels like just yesterday. When those memories come back, it can rock your world at full force. Sometimes memories come back when things get hard or life changes for you. Either way, your life feels chaotic and out of your control.
Some people may not understand what you are going through. They may wonder why you haven’t "gotten over it,” or maybe they wonder what trauma is and how it can affect people long term.
Trauma is a painful experience, one that affects how we think, feel and behave for a long time. It can affect our job performance, relationships, academic performance, socialization and self-care. Most people think of emotional, physical and sexual abuse as forms of trauma. These forms of abuse are certainly traumatic; however, trauma can also be caused by accidents, the death of loved ones and any other overwhelming experience that results in long-term effects.
It feels like an overwhelming rollercoaster affecting areas of your life that once mattered to you. You now feel loss of self, a loss of confidence and a loss of control.
You could be experiencing flashbacks, constant thoughts about your experience and/or maybe constant nightmares about it. These feelings and thoughts can become PTSD.
PTSD presents with the following symptoms:
Loss of interest or pleasure in activities
Insomnia or nightmares
YOU ARE NOT ALONE
TRAUMA COUNSELING CAN HELP.
According to PTSD United Organization, approximately 70% of adults in the US have experienced some type of traumatic situation in their lives. This is a staggering number of 223.4 million Americans. Of these individuals, up to 20% of them develop PTSD, which is approximately 44.7 million adults.
Unresolved trauma and PTSD can become overwhelming to the point that it takes control over different aspects of a person’s life. With the help of highly trained and caring counselors, trauma and PTSD symptoms can become more manageable.
For many, they are simply looking to find freedom from the chains that have held them back from living their lives. Coming out of the grip of trauma is a powerful experience. Healing from trauma requires another level of strength, but going through the process can help many gain the energy they need to have a new and more positive perspective of life. Closure is possible through effective counseling techniques.
Trauma counseling has helped many take back control of their lives, which creates a sense of freedom and harmony. Effective treatments such as solution-focused therapy, CBT, and EMDR are used by our trauma therapists with success.
As committed therapists, we understand that working on overcoming trauma can be a daunting and scary idea. Many individuals wonder if they will have to talk about the traumatic event(s) “over and over.” Luckily, we use a non-invasive and collaborative approach to help you reconnect with yourself and find closure.
As such, we work at the individual’s pace. Our approach is to focus on individuals' strengths and collaborate in finding solutions that fit and provide long-term solutions. We also work under the assumption that therapy does not need to be a lifelong journey.

This is assessed at the initial session, where details are gathered to determine personalized treatment needs.
