Trauma, defined as an event that overwhelms an individual’s ability to cope, creates long-lasting secondary effects that make life harder than it needs to be. Traumas experienced in childhood stay with us long into adulthood. The secondary effects of trauma include emotional disturbances, physical symptoms, and difficulty with relationships. Untreated trauma can result in drastic changes to the brain. Therapy offers the opportunity to address these secondary effects; to feel heard at a deep level, to cultivate a mindful awareness, and create a path to peace. Together we can alter your relationship with adversity, mobilize your inner resources, and empower you to live a satisfying life.
