Are you struggling to process a traumatic experience, and are now experiencing distressful aftereffects? This distress may take the form of uncontrollable emotions or intrusive memories which suddenly come to the surface, perhaps causing you to avoid certain people, places, or things.
When you have experienced trauma, it can stay with you, even if you feel that you have moved on with your life. That trauma can take control of your life, change your behaviors, and even alter your view of yourself and the world. You may not feel that you are the same person you were before.
Sometimes, if traumatic memories, and the emotions that come with them, are left unprocessed, they can cause great distress.
Trauma changes the way the way the brain works and can change a person at the core level. The way you view yourself, the world, and other people can all be affected in a negative way.
You don't have to walk around with the pain, shame, fear, anger, or depression that has grown out of the trauma you experienced. By starting therapy for your trauma or PTSD, you are taking a brave step towards emotional healing.
One goal of trauma therapy is to safely confront and understand these memories and emotions as a way of processing them. At the same time, you will receive support from your therapist while you develop coping skills and grow your confidence in applying them. We want to help you process those emotions and work towards re-framing your view of yourself and the world.

“Trauma is personal. It does not disappear if it is not validated. When it is ignored or invalidated the silent screams continue internally heard only by the one held captive. When someone enters the pain and hears the screams healing can begin.”
