Trauma

It’s not something you think about all the time, but the way you were hurt and the bad things that have happened keep sneaking into your life. Maybe the trauma was abuse or a violent relationship. Sometimes the hurt wasn’t aimed at you, but you heard it or saw it happen to others. It may have been a total accident. But now the pain of it is showing up and you can’t make it go away.

Your nerves feel shot and it’s difficult to concentrate through the anxiety. Sometimes when you feel overwhelmed your body freezes up or starts going so fast that your heart pounds in your chest.. Worse is when memories float up that you can’t clear from your mind, especially at night.

You wish you weren’t so reactive around your kids and your partner but it’s like you can’t help yourself. The guilt and shame of lashing out at them only adds to the struggle and you can feel yourself pulling away. Your friends are so wonderful but there just doesn’t seem to be a good time or place to talk about the past and the pain you are feeling now. Days are filled with wanting to just “get over it.”

I help women make sense of and move past their trauma. They learn to transform difficult emotions and clear the tension and stress from their bodies. Using EMDR we work step by step through the intensity of the experience then and now. Sessions feel predictable, organized and safe. We remove the confusion that comes with the fact that this ‘bad thing’ that happened, it never should have happened. Because you were meant to be well. To be healthy. And we are going to get through it together.
