Safe, Confidential Trauma Therapy

If you’re having difficulty coping with traumatic stress in your life, there’s nothing wrong with you – and there’s nothing wrong with getting help.

Trauma Therapy

Stress is normal. It helps us rise to meet the challenges of the day, and it’s balanced out by things like relaxation and socialization. This is what helps us manage life’s complications on a day-to-day basis.

But sometimes our stress response overwhelms our ability to cope. This is called trauma.

Trauma isn’t always caused by an accident or injury – it can also be emotional. Trauma can result from exposure to violence, or from disruptive events like the loss of a family member. Or, it can be caused by a series of small events, such as abuse, that happen over a period of time.

A common response to trauma is to think there’s something wrong with you. But trauma is simply the result of a natural process. When an event pushes us out of our normal zone of resilience, our nervous system gets thrown off balance. Sometimes, life throws us so far off balance that it’s hard to recover on our own, and we need some help to feel like ourselves again.

Trauma’s Causes and Symptoms

Causes of trauma can include:

War or political upheaval

Sexual violation or abuse

Intimate or social betrayal

Domestic or community violence

Racism, sexism, homophobia and bullying

Trauma is not defined not by the event itself, but by our response to it, which can vary from person to person.

Sometimes trauma carries over from childhood. Studies show that adults who have experienced childhood trauma suffer from higher levels of obesity, heart disease, unintended pregnancy, substance abuse and depression.

Symptoms of trauma include:

Flashbacks

Fatigue

Unstable emotions

Depression

Fluctuations in appetite

Hypervigilance - always feeling on alert

Fight, flight or freeze (dissociation)

Trouble connecting with others

Hypersensitivity to loud noises or other sensory stimulation

Physical problems like headaches or stomach pain

Trauma responses like these happen because our nervous system is wired for survival; it’s our body’s way of keeping us safe when we’re in danger. This is supposed to happen temporarily, but sometimes we get stuck – especially if our experience is prolonged or we’re prevented from finding safety again.
