Counselor/Therapist, M.Ed., LMHC
Most people will experience trauma in their lifetime whether it’s a car accident, abuse or neglect, the sudden death of a loved one, a violent criminal act, exposure to the violence of war, or a natural disaster. While many people can recover from trauma over time with the love and support of family and friends and bounce back with resiliency, others may discover effects of lasting trauma, which can cause a person to live with deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, or posttraumatic stress far after the event has passed. In these circumstances, the support, guidance, and assistance of a therapist is fundamental to healing from trauma.

This method aims to foster resilience, promote recovery, and rebuild a sense of safety and trust in oneself and the world.

Counselor/Therapist, M.S., LMHC
Children and adolescents exposed to traumatic events such as abuse, violence, natural disasters, accidents, injury, or harm can develop health problems called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, also known as PTSD. PTSD can happen in the first weeks after the event or even years later. Traumatic experiences can be re-experienced as PTSD symptoms in the form of “flashback” memories, nightmares, scary thoughts, panic attacks, physical distress, and pain. Individuals may also manifest problems falling or staying asleep, angry or cranky feelings, problems paying attention or focusing, be easily startled, and always being on high alert. Psychotherapy can help provide a safe place to share feelings, play out fears and worries, and address shame and guilty feelings related to the fact that children, unfortunately, tend to blame themselves for the traumatic events they have been victims of.
