Trauma is any significantly dangerous or distressing experience that effects your ability to cope. Although everyone reacts differently, trauma always leaves an impact. Trauma may make you feel depressed, anxious and fearful, angry, or even numb.
As a counselor, I very commonly see clients who experienced trauma as a child or have recently experienced trauma. Coming to counseling and talking about your trauma takes courage and can be difficult. But there is hope, and there is a treatment that helps.
I am certified in Trauma-Focused Cogntitive Behavioral Therapy. This type of counseling teaches you coping skills, processes negative and unhelpful thoughts you may be having, and helps you gain control over unwanted thoughts and memories of your trauma. This type of counseling is beneficial to all age groups.
