About Trauma

If you suffer from any of the following symptoms, you may benefit greatly from counseling:

  • Sleep problems (difficulty falling or staying asleep, sleeping too much)
  • Flashbacks and/or nightmares
  • Restlessness
  • Feeling helpless
  • Difficulty focusing or completing tasks
  • Difficulty trusting others
  • Difficulty communicating needs

Trauma can be intensified by other stressors, such as limited support, lack of resources, and social mistreatment, causing additional symptoms to emerge, which may include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Substance abuse
  • Overeating
  • Health problems
  • Shame

Fortunately, trauma is treatable.  With the right help, you can recover from your traumatic experiences and reclaim your life.
