Trauma

Therapy for Trauma

Are you tired of struggling with shame, self-loathing, and self doubt? Have you tried but things haven't gotten better on their own? Are your confidence and relationships starting to suffer? Are you thinking past trauma could be to blame and considering getting some support? 

If you're reading these words, right now, you're on the right track to feeling better. If you could have thought yourself better, by now, you would have. I understand how we are hurt and how we heal from trauma. This is not a life sentence. Things really can get much, much better.

 

We all experience psychological trauma, or events that cause us to feel highly overwhelmed or helpless, in life. Often, it resolves on its own. But, sometimes, it doesn't and we benefit from getting professional support.

 

Common symptoms of trauma include:

  • Feeling hyper vigilant or on edge

  • Anger, sadness, or numbness

  • Low self esteem

  • Difficulty feeling pleasure and relaxing

  • Trust issues

  • Attention problems

  • Sleeplessness

  • Nightmares

  • Relationship issues

  • Using alcohol or other drugs to cope 

  • Unwanted, intrusive, or irrational thoughts

  • Trouble thinking straight

  • Chronic fearfulness

  • Avoidance of situations triggering fear

  • A nagging feeling that something is wrong

These symptoms interfere with our lives and relationships but trauma is entirely treatable with effective support. I’ve worked with countless women across diverse settings and have found proven tools and techniques supported by both both personal experience and professional research.

 

I provide proven evidence based treatment methods from which clients can choose, including:

  • Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)

  • Trauma informed talk therapy

  • Expressive arts interventions

Many of my clients are surprised to find that they actually feel more confident and relieved during and after our sessions. When it comes to healing, keeping things manageable is key. I believe that our bodies and minds know what to do. Our healing happens naturally once we feel safe, connected, and in control. 

 

I am able to offer recommendations for medical support (medications or inpatient treatment) and collaborate with other healthcare professionals who you may be working with, as needed and desired. 

 

You deserve informed effective therapy to help you feel better. Ready for some support? Contact me today.
