Trauma And Abuse Counseling
Trauma Counseling: What We Do
Our trauma counseling sessions help individuals working through trauma, abuse and sexual abuse. Traumatic experiences can deeply affect you and essentially trap you in a reoccurring cycle of emotions. The fear, sadness, guilt, anger and grief can affect you for extended periods of time, continue to negatively impact your life and resurface again long after the experience.
Trauma is an emotional response that is created as the result of disturbing experiences, distressing circumstances or physical injuries. It is similar to being in a situational crisis and can be an associated condition with a deeper longer-lasting effect. The effects of trauma impact everyone differently. These effects can become evident anytime after the event from immediately to many years afterward if other events trigger similar feelings.
Individual responses to trauma vary since it affects everyone differently. Some commonly experienced forms of coping with trauma include depression, increased anxiety and post traumatic stress disorders in severe cases. All of these responses can have significant impacts on your relationships, so it is important to address them sooner than later. Our licensed counselors can help you recover from trauma and abuse.

Escaping The Vortex Of Trauma
Facing trauma is like a vortex. Traumatic experiences consume every ounce of energy you have until it takes all of your focus to just be a feel "normal." Trauma does this by changing your outlook on life through the experience and making you relate everything else in your life to that event. When this happens, you stop growing and developing in the ways you need to emotionally and relationally. The cycle you enter keeps you inside this vortex until you take time to heal from that initial event, what the impact on your life was and what you can do to escape it. You did not cause the trauma but it is your responsibility to heal from it.
