    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.

    Unresolved trauma can leave a person with deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, or posttraumatic stress for many years. I have specific training in trauma informed therapy and can provide the support, guidance, and assistance essential to healing from trauma.

    Symptoms of trauma include but are not limited to:

    Avoidance Symptoms

    • Avoiding specific locations, sights, situations, and sounds that serve as reminders of the event
    • Anxiety, depression, numbness, or guilt

    Re-experiencing Symptoms

    • Intrusive thoughts, nightmares or flashbacks

    Hyperarousal Symptoms

    • Anger, irritability, and hypervigilance
    • Aggressive, reckless behavior, including self-harm
    • Sleep disturbances

    Negative Mood and Cognition Symptoms

    • Loss of interest in activities that were once considered enjoyable
    • Difficulty remembering details of the distressing event
    • Change in habits or behavior since the trauma

     

    Whether your symptoms are shown above or if your wounds have taken a different form, healing is possible. If you are ready to begin healing and to feel hopeful, contact me today for a free consultation.
