Trauma and PTSD

Soldier talking with therapist

Many (every) individual goes through trauma at one point in their life.

This trauma can vary, such as, but not limited to; a car accident, divorce, death of a loved one, abuse, assault or a natural disaster. Often, people recover from challenging and/or traumatic events with time and support of family and friends. For some, the effects of trauma are lasting and cause a great deal of emotional pain, fear, confusion and, in some cases, PTSD (posttraumatic stress disorder) and/or complex trauma, long after the event has passed.

Trauma, complex Trauma, & PTSD can come in the form of both large traumatic events and/or repeated smaller traumatic ones. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger from post traumatic events. Together, we can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of healing.

As a clinician, I am competent in working with individuals who have experienced a variety of traumatic events in their life. I know it can be difficult to talk about these events and often times you would just rather avoid them. However, avoidance often does not allow for deep healing. Therefore, I recognize the importance of creating a space in my office where you feel in control to go at your own pace.
