Trauma Therapy

Trauma can be very loosely defined as anything so upsetting to the victim that it has a long-term, severely negative impact on his or her life and makes it difficult or impossible to perform everyday functions. We realize that many clients self-medicate with substances to repress traumatic experiences. The cessation of substance use may incite a high level of intensity of emotions and traumatic symptoms.

Several types of trauma exist including those who are mentally or emotionally damaged by sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse, and family tragedy, horrors of war, or witnessing a violent act even if they aren’t the persons involved.

Trauma Therapy is focused on relieving the symptoms of a trauma. These symptoms may include:

  • Anxiety and related body effects such as heavy breathing, sweating, shaking, etc.
  • Fear
  • Feeling emotionally numb
  • Avoiding things related to the trauma
  • Flashbacks or nightmares-“Reliving” the traumatic experience
  • Intense, surprising, or angry reactions to ordinary situations
