Trauma can occur from any event that causes physical, emotional, or psychological stress. Disturbing experiences can often get trapped in our brains and bodies, remaining unprocessed or stuck. When we encounter situations that consciously or unconsciously remind us of the event, we may be triggered to react, often experiencing strong emotions, sensations, or thoughts that seem out of proportion to the situation at hand. This can cause us to feel out of control or as if there is something wrong with us.
Trauma can also show up as limiting beliefs, nightmares, flashbacks, or unexplained negative sensations in the body.
I want you to know there are ways to get these stuck experiences to move through your system and to be processed in a healthy and adaptive way so that you are no longer controlled by them. You will be able to experience pleasure, joy, relaxation, and freedom from those triggering events.
Through getting to know the wounded parts of ourselves and helping our brains process the stuck memories and emotions, we can finally release the burdens we carry and live fuller, healthier, more peaceful lives.
Healing from trauma does not mean you will forget what happened, but it does mean it will no longer control your present happiness. In our work together, I will use integrative methods to help you fully process the trauma. This allows you to move on from the past, while holding onto the knowledge you've gained from it.
