What is Trauma?

Trauma can be defined as experiencing extreme stress which overcomes our capacity to manage a negative event(s). Experiencing a traumatic event can lead to feelings of helplessness and feeling like we cannot cope. Trauma can result from a single event or repeated trauma incidents such as accidents, natural disasters, criminal violence, physical/emotional/sexual abuse, domestic violence, and prolonged stress.

Your therapist will offer insight and guidance through several strategies, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, EMDR, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Somatic therapy, ART, and Internal Family Systems (IFS).
