Counseling for Trauma
According to the American Psychological Association, “trauma is an emotional response to a terrible event like an accident, rape or natural disaster.” A person who has experienced trauma is at risk for developing depression, anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, or misusing drugs or alcohol. It can affect you physically, mentally, and emotionally, but the symptoms may not appear for many months or years, making it difficult to determine the cause. If you have a history of trauma and are struggling with changes in mood and appetite, sadness, excessive worrying and fears, trouble sleeping, and anger, then please reach out for assistance.
I believe that the best way to begin healing from trauma is through the therapeutic relationship. I focus on establishing rapport, trust, empathy, and safety, so my clients can feel comfortable and are able to open up about their experiences. My techniques are integrative, utilizing a person-centered and cognitive behavioral approach. I am also a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, which provides me with the education and tools needed to successfully treat trauma. If you or someone you know matches the trauma symptoms listed above, I am confident that I can help and invite you to contact me today for a free consultation.
