Trauma Counseling Solutions
The majority of our trauma counseling work has been with remote complex trauma. Remote means the trauma is in the past by a few years. Complex means that there was more than one occurrence of trauma. We primarily work with interpersonal trauma exposure, which means there has been physical, sexual or emotional abuse in a relationship. We also serve victims of remote and current crime trauma such as rape victims. Several of our clients are also dealing with traumatic grief such as loss of a loved one as a result of things like crime, disaster or traumatic illness.
The experience of trauma creates brain chemistry change and often sets the person in a state of high alert. Trauma survivors may experience that their senses, such as hearing are exquisitely sensitive. They may re-experience the trauma in the form of dreams or flashbacks. They may be overcome with anxiety, fear and depression. Trauma survivors experience a myriad of symptoms related to the trauma that they often do not even know are related to the trauma. Furthermore, they often do not know help is available for them. Volumes could be written about this. The bottom line is, if you have experienced any form of trauma at any point in your life, there is help.
