The Many Faces of Trauma

Trauma can manifest in various forms, from physical and emotional abuse to life-altering events like accidents or loss. No matter the source, the impact on your mental health can be profound. Symptoms like depression, anxiety, and emotional instability are often the tip of the iceberg.

Common Types of Trauma We Address

  • Sexual Violence
  • Physical Harm
  • Emotional Abuse
  • Natural Disasters
  • Medical Trauma
  • Discrimination and Bullying
  • Childhood Neglect
  • Witnessing or Experiencing Crime
  • War and Refugee Experiences

The Consequences of Untreated Trauma

Ignoring trauma can lead to a host of mental health issues, including but not limited to:

  • Chronic Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Emotional Overwhelm
  • Nightmares and Flashbacks
  • Difficulty in Emotional Regulation
  • Avoidance Behaviors
  • Physical Symptoms like Chronic Pain
Some people can experience a trauma without developing trauma-responses; others don’t. Remember, a trait isn’t a symptom, and a symptom isn’t a disorder! Untreated trauma will rule your life. Depression, anxiety, intense shame, self-doubt, emotional flooding, nightmares, flashbacks, intrusive thoughts, intrusive memories, difficulty regulating emotions, hypervigilance, memory problems, avoiding reminders of the trauma, and chronic pains can drain the joy and vitality from your life.
