Trauma Therapy

Helping You Cope With Life’s Events


Do you find yourself reliving a traumatic moment over and over again? Abuse and loss can leave a lasting impression that is hard to move forward from. The important thing to know is there is a solution, and we can help.


Social anxiety and generalized anxiety are both very common after a traumatic experience. If you find yourself worrying persistently or overthinking, we can help.


You may feel like you are worthless or that you were the reason that you were abused or lost a loved one. You don’t need to feel this way, and we can help you.

Don’t Let a Traumatic Experience Control You

Abuse, Loss, or a natural disaster, there are many forms a traumatic experience can take, and there are many ways these emotions manifest themselves. You may experience anxiety, have feelings of lethargy or depression, feel the need to constantly look over your shoulder, or even feel that your life has no meaning.

The most important thing you need to know is that you can feel better and that you will be ok. You need to know that it’s ok to feel this way, that you’re not alone and that these feelings are perfectly normal after a traumatic event. We will listen to your unique situation and provide a tailored plan to help you see a better tomorrow.
