Trauma and Abuse

Heal Past Wounds

The re-experiencing of traumatic event such as accidents, attacks, or even abuse at the hands of others can persist for years if left unaddressed. In addition, past sexual, verbal, emotional, or physical abuse may continue to affect you and your relationships. 

Trauma and Abuse

The experience of trauma is more common than most individuals would assume. Part of the difficulty in coping with trauma-related disorders is the silence and stigma associated with having experienced a trauma. From sexual assault and military combat injuries, to car accidents and experiencing natural disasters, there are a variety of ways trauma can be experienced. 

Going through trauma is not rare. Although we cannot undo the past, we can heal, and know that continued healing is still possible.

About 6 of every 10 men and 5 of every 10 women experience at least one trauma in their lives.

How to Heal from Trauma

There are many different approaches to treat the symptoms caused by trauma. One of the trauma therapy methods that has the most research backing is called Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, or EMDR. In this type of trauma counseling, clients revisit and reprocess traumatic memories while engaging in another task to control for how distressing the process can be. Other techniques may include CBT exposure therapy, narrative therapy, breathwork, and other explorations which may provide a passage to healing by allowing clients to safely revisit earlier events and reprocess them in healthier ways.
