COUNSELING FOR TRAUMA & PTSD

Healing from the past, reclaiming your future

Traumatic events can have a tremendous effect on our mental health and impact our ability to cope with everyday life. Fortunately, it is possible to escape the hold trauma often has on us.

"We are powerful because we have survived, and that is what it is all about—survival and growth"

- Audre Lorde

What is trauma

Trauma is an emotional response to a distressing event that is difficult to cope with or out of our control. It can have lasting, adverse effects on a person's well-being. Traumatic events can be difficult to define because the same event may be more traumatic for some people than for others. Some examples of traumatic events are:

  • Physical, emotional, or sexual abuse

  • Neglect or abandonment

  • Accidents or injuries

  • Natural disasters

  • Community violence

  • Near-death experiences

  • Traumatic grief/loss

  • Medical trauma

  • Chronic illness

  • Racial trauma

  • Military combat

TRAUMA-INFORMED THERAPY

Overcoming trauma with help from a professional 

Trauma counseling is a specialized form of therapy aimed at helping individuals recover from traumatic experiences and reclaim their sense of safety, well-being, and empowerment.

In trauma counseling sessions, we will co-create a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental space where you can explore your experiences, process difficult emotions, and develop coping strategies to regain a sense of control and empowerment.

I utilize a variety of evidence-based therapeutic approaches tailored to your unique needs and preferences. These approaches are designed to help you process traumatic memories, regulate your emotions, and develop effective coping strategies for managing distress.

THERAPEUTIC APPROACHES USED INCLUDE:

  • Internal Family Systems (IFS)

  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)

  • Mindfulness-based techniques

  • Trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT)
