Trauma Therapy: Empowering Recovery and Reclaiming Your Life
Trauma therapy is important for the chronic and sudden event or relationships that have hurt you. Our therapists are trauma-informed and can help you heal from deep scars emotionally.
For instance, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that can develop following a distressing and threatening event. As you navigate the path to recovery, you may encounter a myriad of symptoms. Flashbacks to the traumatic event, sleep disturbances or insomnia, feelings of guilt, shame, or embarrassment—these experiences are all valid and normal. At Counseling Near Me, we are here to assist you in reprocessing the event and finding solace amidst your trauma.
Our aim is to equip you with essential skills for effectively coping with the impact of past traumas, providing you with the necessary tools to break free from their hold on your life. PTSD can affect both individuals and couples, and we recognize the significance of addressing the needs of both partners. If your partner has experienced trauma, we can support you in rebuilding a safe and supportive relationship, fostering open discussions about emotions, while helping your partner understand the importance of validation and support.
Sometimes, the events of our early lives and past relationships continue to exert influence over us, even decades later. This lingering impact can be disempowering. In therapy, we refer to this as trauma, which may differ from surviving a natural disaster or car accident. It can manifest as communication patterns learned in early life that no longer serve us. We may carry unresolved trauma from previous experiences, which requires reprocessing and reframing in a new light. Together, we embark on a transformative journey of understanding and healing, empowering you to embrace a future untethered by past trauma.Find a therapist
