When trauma comes into our lives, either by a recent event or remembering a long-ago experience, there may be a host of symptoms that come with it. You, or your loved one (child and adults) may experience, or have been told you/they have, symptoms of a trauma reaction that include PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), a Bi-Polar disorder, Dissociative Qualities, Disordered Eating, ADHD, Attachment Injuries, Behavioral Issues or many other symptoms on the trauma spectrum.
While determining a diagnosis is helpful to determine an ethical and helpful course of treatment, I do not believe that “diagnosis labels” define a person in anyway. In fact, I believe that many symptoms of trauma are adaptive and resourceful responses that allow us to survive the unthinkable.
If you are your child/adolescent or another loved one are experiencing symptoms noted above, or any other symptoms, I will provide a safe space to put these experiences out on the table so we can begin navigating to the other side of healing into a peaceful and mindful existence.
I look forward to learning more about your story and the wonderful strategies you or your loved ones developed to survive what could have been unsurvivable. Together we will celebrate your resiliency that is now bringing you to your time of healing.
Trauma comes from those insidious events that find their way into our lives and rip at the core of who we are. Before trauma can be transformed into meaning, it is important that we work together to help you navigate healing from the effects of physical, sexual, domestic or emotional abuse. Trauma itself may include being raised in a childhood household ridden with neglect and attachment injuries.
You may even find that you are still living in a traumatizing situation, or your child/adolescent has been experienced a traumatic event.
Living in “trauma time” is no fun and casts a fog over the amazing life experiences you deserve to savor. Whatever the situation, we can work together to bring an environment of healing forward and peace to your life.
