Living with trauma was part of your life.
Each day, you awake to worry about what will happen to you. You wonder what you did to deserve all this stuff and why no one cares enough to listen to you.
Over time, you blame yourself and believe all those subtle little messages: “Maybe I shouldn’t have worn that, made them so mad, or been a bad little kid.”
But today, you think things will be better (probably not, but let’s pretend for a bit), and no one will hurt you. You keep your guard on full alert, and the fear is draining.
Danger seems everywhere and in everyone, but you must keep it to yourself. No one will believe you if you tell them. Or worse yet, they will blame you more and ask you to change and get over it.
Trauma is a scary and often avoided word.
And yet trauma applies to nearly all my clients. My clients are often the ones that have been through all sorts of prolonged trauma.
Sexual abuse, abusive relationships, and childhood neglect are a few of the traumas that impact people daily. Just because the trauma is over does not mean it goes away.
That trauma leaves a lasting impression and has taught you that you are not good enough, smart enough, successful enough, or pretty enough.
Unfortunately, you now fully believe that what happened to you is your fault and that you must do better.
Don’t let trauma hold you hostage!
Let’s get through those negative haunting memories and lessons and find that true inner self that is the real you.
We might spend time discussing your past or learning how to be safe in the present moment. Honestly, when was the last time you truly felt safe?
As a trauma specialist with over 10 years of experience in trauma and 30 years in serving others, I will help you walk through those trauma lessons and feel safe again. Never judge what you have experienced. Focus on what those events have taught you and what you want to do with those lessons.
Having been through sexual abuse or dealing with a current abusive relationship does not need to define you. We will confront it together and help you get your life back.
