Trauma & PTSD

Feeling stuck in the past? Living with the impact of trauma is incredibly painful.

Have you ever experienced something that made you question your feeling of security and stability in the world? Do you have disturbing and vivid dreams or flashbacks from the incident? It’s possible that particular thoughts, emotions, physical sensations, interactions, or situations trigger distress. You may also feel out of control or helpless because your brain and body now respond to even the slightest sense of danger as though the threat from the past is actually present.

Trauma can present itself differently in each person. You may experience:

  • Hypervigilance
  • Feeling disconnected or numb
  • Feelings shame and/or self-blame
  • Irritability and anger
  • Withdrawal from others
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Nightmares
  • Intrusive memories or flashbacks
  • Hopelessness
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Easily startled
  • Fatigue
  • Agitation
  • Muscle tension, aches, and pains

Everyone’s life experiences are unique, some memories you may try erase only to find yourself with reminders and triggers.  Living with trauma can be draining and discouraging. Do you long for a way to resolve your trauma, to find meaning in your experiences, and regain serenity once more? I can assist!
