Traumatic experiences can be tough to “get over”
Being yelled at, witnessing an accident or even reading a disturbing newspaper article can trigger trauma. So can a life-changing experience, such as a loved one’s death, childhood neglect or sexual abuse. Trauma counseling can help you learn to cope. Through therapy, I can help empower you to explore, accept and heal your traumas. I’m here for you … ready to listen to your story and help you understand the impact of this trauma in your life.
If you have been having difficulties recovering from a traumatic experience, then trauma counseling can help. If you are having trouble understanding your disturbing thoughts, nightmares, fear, anxiety and other uncomfortable symptoms, then trauma counseling might be the answer.
You may be redirecting your feelings and thoughts outwards towards family, friends and coworkers. Perhaps you are experiencing denial, anger, sadness and emotional outbursts. Wherever you are in your recovery process, I’m here to help.
After getting to know you and understanding the details of your specific traumas, we will develop an integrated treatment plan.
In addition to traditional talk therapy, your trauma treatment plan may incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), meditation, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and introducing a mindfulness practice into your everyday life.
I also highly recommend out-of-office acupuncture treatments, yoga and exercise.
