What is Trauma Therapy?

Experiencing a traumatic event, no matter how seemingly large or small, leaves an imprint on your life. Sometimes it only takes moments before realizing that you’re not feeling yourself, other times it takes years for symptoms to start kicking in. Trauma therapy teaches you how to cope with the past, deal with your emotions, and grow into a stronger person.

The Symptoms of Trauma?

Symptoms of trauma vary from person to person and depend on the severity of the event. They can appear immediately following the event or arise years later.

Common Symptoms Include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Emotional detachment
  • Flashbacks
  • Insomnia
  • Loss of self-esteem
  • Self-medication
