Trauma therapy is a type of mental health treatment that helps people cope with the emotional and psychological effects of experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. Trauma can cause symptoms such as flashbacks, nightmares, anxiety, depression, guilt, anger, or numbness. Trauma can also be the events in your life that made you feel unloveable, unworthy, unsafe or that you are responsible for everyone else. Therapy aims to help people process their trauma, reduce their distress, and improve their quality of life. Your therapist may use different techniques, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, exposure therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, or somatic therapy. Trauma therapy is not a one-size-fits-all approach, but rather a personalized and collaborative process between the therapist and the client.
During your free consultation, your therapist might discuss what approach will work best for you. We know it can be difficult to talk about these things and there is no pressure to give details. It is our job to build trust and establish a safe and welcoming environment for you. Grounded Roots Mental Health Therapy is here to help you through with compassion, understanding, and a tailored approach for your needs.
