Life often includes painful, frightening events. Sometimes it is a single incident, like being robbed, or going through a natural disaster, or an auto accident. Sometimes it is a long-term experience, like receiving abuse from a parent or partner for many years. Sometimes it is witnessing someone else go through a similar ordeal. Whenever you find that difficult experiences from the past are still causing you problems in the present, trauma therapy can help. It is common for traumatic experiences to affect your mood, thinking, physical functioning, emotions, and relationships. The good news is, we have an abundance of strategies and supports available to help you develop a sense of peace, safety, and strength, in spite of trauma. Your clinician will work with you to find the best combination of approaches for your personality and situation. We offer several specific tools which were designed to facilitate healing for trauma, including Somatic Experiencing, EMDR, Brainspotting, and the Immanuel Approach (for those seeking Christian counseling).
