Processing Your Trauma

Healing from trauma can be a difficult process, but it’s not one you have to go through alone. We have counselors trained in multiple types of trauma

therapy that would love to help you work through your past so you can find closure and peace.

Trauma-informed therapy: Trauma-informed therapy helps people process traumatic events by showing understanding and sensitivity to trauma-related

issues. It seeks to empower the client with skills and strategies to help them understand and process how their trauma is affecting them and their

behaviors. Trauma therapists use physical and emotional safety in sessions, collaboration, transparency and competency.

Trauma-focused CBT: TF-CBT is an evidence-based treatment that is proven to help emotional and behavioral issues in children and adolescents that have been impacted by trauma. It is a conjoint therapy that works with the child/adolescent and their parents or caregivers.

EMDR therapy: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy is a psychotherapy treatment that is proven to help people recover from

traumatic and distressing experiences. It can help alleviate symptoms of PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders in people who have

experienced trauma.

CBT therapy: Cognitive behavioral therapy can also be used to heal from trauma. CBT offers structured techniques to assist in processing and moving forward from the trauma.

You don’t have to live life feeling that you cannot escape your trauma. We can help you get there.
