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, a violent criminal act, exposure to the violence of war, or a natural disaster.
While many people can recover from trauma over time with the love and support of family and friends and bounce back with resiliency, others may discover effects of lasting trauma, which can cause a person to live with deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, or posttraumatic stress far after the event has passed.
Trauma is a normal reaction to an abnormal circumstance. While our brain is wired towards survival, sometimes the overwhelming impact of an adversity can cause us to freeze. I am here to help.
In these circumstances, the support, guidance, and assistance of a therapist is fundamental to healing from trauma.
Research has proven psychotherapy to be an effective form of treatment for trauma. I provide a combination of psychodynamic, Component Based Psychotherapy, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy in treating trauma.
If you or someone you know wants help in healing from the effects of trauma, I invite you to contact me to see if we can be a good fit.
