Counseling for Trauma
What exactly is trauma? It can be defined as a psychological and emotional response to an event or an experience that is deeply distressing. Everyone processes traumatic events differently because we all face distressing events through a lens of prior life experiences. Sometimes the brain will get stuck triggering our alarm system causing anxiety, depression, panic, and uncomfortable feelings. Many times we hold our trauma in a box and hide it under work and achievements causing us to keep outrunning the pain and uncomfortable feelings. If distressful memories or emotions from the past continue to intrude into your present life then it is important to process these memories and mine the elements of the events you need to integrate into your life. With EMDR and a trained therapist, you can safely process these disturbing memories and move toward adaptive resolution and freedom.

Counseling for Trauma
This might be the phrase you have said to yourself over and over and have not been able to find relief. Feelings of anxiety, panic, intruding distressful thoughts, nightmares, triggers, or just an overall uncomfortable feeling of sadness have become your new normal. This is the path for you to move toward health and wellness.
Therapeutic Walk & Talk
Are you more comfortable talking to someone shoulder to shoulder on a walk or jog? Is it easier to get to your distressing feelings and be vulnerable while you are participating in an activity? It is individual counseling all wrapped up in a therapeutic walk with your therapist. This is the path for you, so grab some walking shoes and let’s talk.
Do you feel more comfortable having a therapist who will include your faith in your counseling sessions? Do you feel that it is important for your direction to come from scripture and understanding God’s plan for your life? Then this is the perfect path for you these sessions will be infused in the Christian faith and will encourage your faith.
