Enrichment Training & Counseling Solutions - Salley Schmid, Therapist - Waco, Texas

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 psychological, 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.

At Enrichment, we have many years of experience and training in serving those exposed to trauma, including training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR),  Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Emotionally Focused Therapy.  Give us a call or email us from the Contact Us page.  We would love to help you toward healing and living a life no longer chained to the trauma.

We use a variety of interventions including EMDR, art, writing, mindfulness, meditation, and relaxation training, private Yoga, Massage, Daring Way™ material, traditional talk therapy, narrative therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and more.  If you are at a point where you feel you ore so overwhelmed that the daily tasks of living are going un-met, you may find our healing retreat program a fit for your needs.  Please visit the Healing Retreat page.
