Trauma Counseling

Hope for an Abundant Life

Traumatic events, both big and small, can negatively affect the way partners interact with each other. Left untreated, trauma can destroy a relationship.

A Biopsychosocial Approach to Trauma

Our Trauma Counseling considers the biological, psychological and social factors of trauma.

The symptoms of trauma include:
  • Biological: chronic pain, inflammation, brain injury, brain chemistry.
  • Psychological: distorted thought patterns, depression, anxiety.
  • Social: isolation and withdrawal.

Holistic Treatment

Both the mind and body are affected by a traumatic event, and more so by repeated, ongoing traumas.

Our mission is to understand, assess and treat a trauma survivor's biopsychosocial pain.

Impact of Trauma on Couples

Trauma can enter a relationship through betrayal, childhood trauma or a horrific event experienced as an adult.

Trauma destabilizes the survivor. The overwhelming pain or fear from the trauma can hinder the person from forming or sustaining intimate relationships.

Intimacy requires trust and vulnerability. However, for a trauma survivor, trust and vulnerability are seen as threats rather than building blocks for connecting.
