Trauma

Traumatic experiences often leave us feeling less safe in the world. Anxiety, panic attacks, and depression are common side effects of trauma, as are experiences such as nightmares, intrusive memories, disassociation, and flashbacks. Trauma can lead to feeling cautious about relationships, feeling less able to trust other people, or feeling misunderstood. Sometimes people who have experienced trauma are given diagnoses of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), Depression, Anxiety, or Bipolar Disorder. Sometimes no diagnosis is ever given, but the feeling remains that something is wrong.

Therapy can help make sense of the many feelings and experiences that continue, even when you are no longer in an unsafe situation. Somatic practices, such a EMDR, yoga, and mindfulness, can help trauma survivors reconnect to their body and process non-verbal emotions.

Therapy can help to minimize feelings of shame, guilt, and self-blame, helping you feel stronger and more confident. At the Healing Collective, we believe that you are the expert on your own life. We will walk beside you to discover the best paths towards your own healing and recovery.
