When someone mentions trauma, people quickly think of responses to war or sexual abuse. And while those are absolutely examples of traumatic experiences, some might be surprised to find that individuals can have a traumatic response to work environments, verbal abuse, and social injustice. There are many triggering events that result in a traumatic experience, and our goal is to be able to walk with you through the difficult journey of dealing with your trauma.
Trauma Healing: Improve Your Quality of Life
It is incredible to watch a client identify and utilize strengths that they didn’t even know they possessed. And gratifying to champion them using those strengths to grow, through the process of therapy. We are honored to have the privilege to work hard for our clients with the aim of helping them improve their quality of life. Our faith in the tenacity of humankind has been restored by watching our clients take ownership of their life stories!
Working with a Trauma Therapist
Prior to beginning any type of trauma work with you, we will ensure you possess healthy coping skills and strategies needed to manage your symptoms of trauma, anxiety, and/or depression. For many clients, this is simply a review of coping skillsets you already have. When trauma occurs and emotions take over, it can become almost impossible to remember the coping mechanisms you already have in your toolkit. Once we have established rapport and your symptoms have stabilized, trauma work can begin.
Trauma-Focused CBT and other Trauma Therapies
Many different therapeutic techniques will be utilized during treatment, including Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, ARC (Attachment, Regulation, and Competency), and Trauma Therapy.
Our Trauma Therapists in Columbus are Ready to Help
Victims believe they have no choice but to have their lives defined by the trauma they experienced. While they are correct in that they can’t change what happened to them, they can choose how they allow it to impact their lives. Survivors have learned not to allow their trauma to define who they are as a person; instead, they come to view their trauma as only one part of their life story, with a lot of life left to live. We would love the opportunity to help you move from feeling victimized to becoming a survivor. Contact our office today.
