Have you witnessed or been involved in a traumatic event? Have you been a victim of abuse? Either physical, emotional or sexual? Do you find it difficult to speak to your friends and family about your feelings or emotions related to this trauma? Sometimes people do not wish to burden their family with talking of such terrible things. Family can find it very difficult to help. Trauma can affect many aspects in one's life. Difficulties with sexual intimacy, poor parenting, stressful work life, and unmanaged anxiety are all very real aspects of trauma. If the emotional distress from trauma is not processed, one may turn to self-harm, drug and alcohol abuse and isolation from others or life in general.
I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional with over 16 years of experience working with people who have experienced trauma and crisis in their lives. It amazes me when I hear some of the very painful experiences people have kept inside for so many years. Humans are strong and have a natural defense to shove the "tough stuff" very deep in order to go on with their lives, thinking it is hidden forever. These experiences are never hidden forever and will always find a way to come up and bite one in the butt when it is least expected.
Please know that you are not alone and you do not have to feel this way. I will help you process these painful experiences and help you move forward with life as a stronger more confident person.
If you find that now is the time to beging working on YOU, give me a call. I can help.
I look forward to meeting with you soon. ~ Jennifer
