Trauma

589683482It’s a common word…

We hear it in many contexts, so it’s hard to know whether it applies to us.

You’ve faced some dark days, but does it count as “trauma?”

You may have even called it… and then turned around and wondered if you were making a big deal out of nothing.

But it is a big deal.

You relive those events over and over. Some days it’s hard to think about anything else. You try to push the memories away, but somehow they return, raising their hand for attention.

Often, you can’t sleep, wake up with night terrors, or find yourself triggered by the smallest things.

You just want it all to go away.

Something is… “off.”

You just can’t quite put your finger on it.

You often wonder why relationships are so hard…

… or why you’re flooded with sadness, anger, fear, or despair despite having “a good life.”

Things are going “okay,” so you feel like you shouldn’t complain… but things just don’t add up.

1658773978Let’s break it down…

Everyone recognizes certain “big” events as trauma, but there can also be repeated “small” traumas that weave into the fabric of your life.

Rather than a one-time event, threads of pain, shame, confusion, or sadness shape how you see and walk through the world.

No matter what happened, if you feel off-balance, numb, anxious, sad, confused, ashamed, or alone, you may be dealing with past or present trauma.

You know the significant consequences…

… on your mental, physical, emotional, and relational health.

I can help you identify behaviors and beliefs that are not serving you and replace them with more positive, realistic strategies for living.

You’ll also learn to regulate the difficult emotions that come from being triggered by past trauma.

Finally, I can help you set healthy boundaries to help you operate better at home, at work, and in your relationships.

You are NOT broken.

You’re just deeply hurt and need to find the safety and care that will bring healing.

That’s what I’m here for – to give you the tools to recover and live a vibrant, healthy life.

You’re not alone in this!
