Struggling with Trauma?

Trauma is the response to a distressing or disturbing experience that overwhelms the brain’s ability to cope. These types of experiences can lead to feelings of helplessness, depression, anxiety, and overall life dissatisfaction. Trauma diminishes our sense of self and our ability to feel a full range of emotions. People often report feeling numb/disconnected and or in a state of panic/hypervigilance.

Trauma does not discriminate, and it is pervasive in our society. When we experience an event or circumstance that involves loss of control, betrayal, abuse, loss, helplessness, pain and/or confusion, trauma symptoms are often the result. It is important to know when you are experiencing common symptoms of trauma and it may include:

Emotional Signs:

  • Sadness

  • Anxiety
  • Shame
  • Guilt
Physical Symptoms:

Psychological Disorders:
