Trauma can take many forms. Many believe that trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can only happen after a severe or violent event. But it can also happen after any significantly distressing life event that fundamentally changes how we see ourselves and the world around us.
Trauma, big or small, ultimately causes a disconnection from parts of our self and others. These experiences can get in the way of your happiness and health, and even make daily life a challenge. We are here to help guide you towards a safe and self-controlled path back to feeling whole and connected again.
Trauma therapy can support your capacity to heal and regain a sense of stability. As experienced trauma therapists, we can help you understand how trauma impacts you and your nervous system, so you can manage your symptoms and get you back to yourself. The good news is that trauma can be healed with the right therapy.
One approach we use is EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) therapy. This technique helps you process traumatic events better than talk therapy alone. We offer EMDR as part of your therapy. We also offer extended EMDR sessions, including sessions in a healing outdoor environment.
