Trauma/PTSD (Adults)

When you have experienced trauma, it can be excruciating. You may feel at a loss as to how to process what you have been through or how you can even start to heal. You may have spent most of your life trying to avoid the trauma you had experienced as a child, only to have it resurface over and over again, disrupting your ability to function and live a life consistent with what matters most to you. You just want to experience a sense of safety, connection, and security again. But the impact of trauma can cut deep. Even if you feel lost, or if your trauma happened years ago, there are steps you can take to overcome the pain, learn to trust and connect to others again, there is hope.
