Trauma Sucks.  Trauma Therapy Doesn’t Have To.

You Tried to Talk About It, It Didn’t Work.

You feel broken, stuck, afraid to talk about what happened.  

You tried talking but heard “you have it better than I did”, “get over it” or weren’t believed. You got the message no-one was there for you.

You’re ashamed. “Was it my fault?”  You can’t tell anyone. They will act different and you can’t stand that.  No one knows the real you.

Why can’t you move on?   It was so long ago but you’re trapped in a body that can’t relax or really trust someone.


Your Body is Tired of Keeping Score

You push it down, but it’s so exhausting.  Your health is suffering from the chronic stress.

The only escape is to numb out by binging tv, scrolling on your phone, shopping, drinking….

When you aren’t numb you’re anxious, angry, and doubt yourself.  You want to do things and hate yourself because you can’t.

You’re too burned out to have friends. People suck anyway.  


You Want Relief

You are afraid of what might come up if you start to talk, but you can’t keep feeling this way.

It doesn’t feel like living; always on guard, unable to trust others, unable to regulate emotions, and always giving more than you get.

You’ve tried other kinds of therapy and are ready for something to work.
