Therapy for Trauma
Our therapists play a vital role in helping you navigate and heal from various types of trauma – single incident, familial/developmental/relational, and trauma associated with racism and discrimination. Through the therapeutic relationship, our therapists help you process and reframe the traumatic memory and or experiences by creating a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship. We help you explore and understand early experiences, and develop coping mechanisms to address lingering effects. When dealing with trauma associated with racism, therapists integrate culturally intentional approaches, providing a space for you to discuss your experiences, validate emotions, and foster empowerment. Overall, therapists tailor their interventions to the specific nature of the trauma, incorporating evidence-based practices, empathy, and a collaborative approach to support you on your journey toward healing and resilience.
If anxiety and depression are casting shadows on your path to recovery, our seasoned therapists are committed to guiding you towards clarity and the road to healing.
More About What We Do
Single Incident Trauma
A single-incident trauma refers to a distressing event that occurs suddenly and involves exposure to a threatening or harmful experience. This type of trauma is characterized by its acute and isolated nature, impacting individuals emotionally, psychologically, or physically. Examples of single-incident traumas include accidents, natural disasters, or violent encounters, and their effects can vary widely depending on the individual.
Development Trauma / Complex PTSD
Developmental trauma encompasses adverse experiences or disruptions during a person’s formative years that impede healthy emotional, cognitive, or social development. This type of trauma typically occurs over an extended period, often in childhood, and can result from neglect, abuse, or instability in caregiving relationships. The consequences of developmental trauma may manifest in challenges with attachment, self-regulation, and interpersonal relationships throughout the individual’s life.
Racism-related trauma stems from systemic discrimination, microaggressions, or overt acts of racism experienced by individuals or communities. This type of trauma can have profound psychological and emotional effects, contributing to feelings of alienation, hypervigilance, and a sense of constant threat. All our therapists practice from an anti-oppressive and anti-racism framework to aid in the exploration and healing of these experiences.
