Trauma Counseling

Overcome the Pain of Past Experience

“I just want a life worth living.”

We all live through difficult experiences. But sometimes those experiences are terrifying and can cause a lifetime of pain. This is trauma. 

Untreated, trauma can impact every aspect of your life:

You don’t need to suffer any longer!

Healing trauma has evolved over the past two decades with powerful and innovative ways to resolve and heal past traumatic experience. By working through the body/mind connection, we can heal the impact of trauma. 

What is trauma?

Trauma is what can happen when we experience scary or life threatening events. It’s important to remember that what is scary to one person is not to someone else. Sometimes we get through these times quite well. At other times though we can struggle for years with the devastating impact of trauma related illness and conditions like Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). 

In fact, often underlying common conditions like depression, anxiety, ADHD, and stress is unresolved trauma. We tend to bury these painful memories. And when we do, over time the wear and tear on our body and mind is clear. Eventually, we can’t hold it any longer. 

Untreated trauma can impact us in many ways. It powerfully alters how we relate to others, the world and to ourselves. It can devastate our lives, our bodies and our spirit. One of my clients put it best when he said “there is nothing in my life that isn’t impacted by my trauma.” 

What causes trauma?

  • Abuse – physical, emotional, sexual
  • Natural disasters
  • Car accidents
  • Crime
  • Domestic violence
  • Losing someone close to you
  • Witnessing something scary
  • Public speaking
  • Illness, surgeries, diseases
  • End of a relationship
  • Bullying

There is Hope!

Luckily, over the past couple of decades the field of psychology, and specifically the field of somatic psychology, has uncovered powerful, innovative and effective therapy for trauma. Somatic Experiencing, EMDR, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Brainspotting are all examples of modalities that have emerged relatively recently. 

My work incorporates many of these modalities along with mindfulness, Hakomi Therapy, Attachment Theory, Shamanism, Reiki and other psycho-biological disciplines. Everyday I work with people who have been through a myriad of traumatic events in their lives, and am privileged to help them get their lives back! 

Help is available. And it works! You do not have to suffer any longer with the devastating impact of trauma.
