Trauma Therapy

Trauma is the emotional and physiological responses to a terrible event. Traumatic experiences can be a single incident or a series of similar or different incidents over time such as sexual abuse or witnessing a violent event. Research has also shown experiences such as job loss or bullying are associated with traumatic symptoms. Trauma often has long-term and devastating effects. Sometimes the effects of trauma don’t look like what we expect and often show up as feelings of anger, betrayal, or sadness. If you think you may need help overcoming trauma in your life, let our trained therapists help.
