Overcome trauma and create the life you want
Emotional and psychological trauma is the result of extraordinarily stressful events that shatter your sense of security, making you feel helpless in a dangerous world. Psychological trauma can leave you struggling with upsetting emotions, memories, and anxiety that won’t go away. It can also leave you feeling numb, disconnected, and unable to trust other people.
Treatment centers on gaining greater understanding and awareness of your internal experience, so you can equip yourself with the tools necessary to minimize these negative symptoms.
Symptoms Associated With Depressive Disorders
- Acute trauma: This results from a single stressful or dangerous event.
- Chronic trauma: This results from repeated and prolonged exposure to highly stressful events. Examples include cases of child abuse, bullying, or domestic violence.
- Complex trauma: This results from exposure to multiple traumatic events.
The Focus Of Our Work Together
One goal of a trauma treatment is to help you regain power and control over past experiences by sensitively to re-narrate your story. Over time you will have the opportunity to “process” or organize these unique experiences into everyday life and make meaning of the event(s) and how they relate to your view of yourself and the world around you.
A comprehensive treatment approach can be successful in minimizing the symptoms of depression, as individuals gain a greater understanding of their experiences, learn to self-regulate, alter their perspectives and regain control of their life.
