Therapy For Chronic Pain & Medical Trauma In

St. George UT

Empowering Women Through Healing from Medical Trauma

The challenges you’ve faced with your health and your body have left you feeling confused and empty. Whether you’ve experienced a miscarriage or infertility, a diagnosis of chronic pain or years of medically unexplained symptoms (MUS) it has left you isolated and alone, even from your closest loved ones. So many days it feels like your own body has betrayed you – this is the deepest insult of them all.

The roller coaster of symptoms, treatments and losses has been sent out of control. Simply getting through your usual routine is like climbing a mountain. You find yourself wishing for something certain but it’s difficult when your hopes have been dashed and the interventions meant to help… they hurt.

The Isolation Of Medical Trauma Is Real

It’s hard to tell your care providers how deeply you are struggling or that you’re unhappy with the care you’re receiving. This is especially true when you feel like they are trying their best.

And when family tells you that “there’s still hope”, “it will get better” and you need to “just stay positive” – well, it feels like there’s no room for the reality of your pain and loss. Do you just keep smiling for them? Putting on a good face?

You’ve begun to wonder if there’s anything you can do to gain control over the situation and begin to feel hopeful again. Is there anyone that might understand?

Your Story Matters. Your Healing Matters.

Facing your medical trauma can lead you down an unexpected and challenging path, full of conflicting emotions. From fear and uncertainty to grief and frustration it is like you run from hot to cold by the day, sometimes by the hour.

No matter how rocky the road, your experiences are valid and your story is unique. At Guided Wellness Counseling, we honor the strength it takes to navigate challenges such as:

  • Chronic Pain
  • Medically unexplained symptoms
  • Miscarraige
  • Health complications as a child
  • Abortion / Termination / DNC
  • Traumatic births and cesarean delivery
  • And so much more…

We recognize the importance of creating a space where you feel seen and heard. We know you’re not faking it. You’re not being dramatic. It’s not “all in your head”. We get it and we are here for you.

How Therapy At Guided Wellness Counseling Can Help

Our therapists specialize in supporting the women of Southern Utah through the healing journey of medical trauma. To start, you are matched with a therapist for your unique needs. Never do we simply offer whichever clinician has the next opening – you deserve a custom match. Then we apply our zero waitlist policy: we only accept clients when we can commit to a prompt intake and weekly services. We offer a safe, nonjudgmental environment where your lifestyle, health care choices and personal journey are treated with respect.

The Premier Provider of EMDR For Women In Southern Utah

But a listening ear is not enough. Our clinicians are trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) – a method of therapy that utilizes gentle bilateral eye movements or handheld ‘tappers’ that help to reduce the intensity of traumatic memories and thoughts, difficult emotions and physical tension. Your therapist will address your history of medical trauma as well as feelings that your body has betrayed you or stolen your future from you.

In combination with EMDR therapy, we can support you in recreating plans for self-care during this new phase or season of life. As specialists in women’s emotional health we understand that women have been mass marketed self-care, leading you to invest your time and energy into one-size fits all strategies that may no longer apply to your body and your new lifestyle / life phase. When needed, we support our clients in creating personalized self-care plans that include more functional boundaries, reduced people pleasing, self advocacy, coping skills and radical acceptance.

Take A Step Forward: Therapy With No False Promises

It’s painful to spend the days wishing things could be like they once were. Before the loss. Before the pain. Before the treatments. Even therapy cannot turn back the hands of time. But we can look at the past and the moments that brought you to this moment… This moment when you decided that things can’t stay the way they are.

If you are ready to begin therapy we’d like to extend to you a complimentary 15-minute phone consultation. This is your opportunity to explore your motivation for beginning therapy and your goals for the future. Then we’ll match you to the right therapist at our St. George UT office.

In-person and telehealth appointments will be available for you as you need to adjust your busy schedule or for your comfort. Rest assured, your therapist has availability for regular, consistent sessions so you’re never put on a wait-list or told it’ll be weeks before you can be seen again.
