Trauma refers to a serious injury or shock to the mind as may occur from physical, psychological, or emotional violence. In my view, it may be differentiated into two kinds: Incident Trauma and Developmental Trauma.

    • Person To Person Trauma
      • Victims Of Violent Crime
        • Rape
        • Assault
        • Battery
        • Mugging
        • Shooting
        • Stabbing
        • Kidnapping
        • Carjacking
        • Murder (Traumatic Experience Of Family Or Friends Of Victim)
        • Childhood Sexual Incidents
          • Molestation
          • Incest
        • NOTE: If you or a family member have been a victim of violent crime, I give you a place where you can feel safe and where you can honestly and openly talk about what happened to you or your family member and how it still effects you, even when your friends and family don’t want to or can’t stand to hear about it any longer. I will help you to understand why you are reacting as you do, even when you may feel out of control and maybe even a little “crazy.” I will also give you ways to work through the psychological and emotional impact of what happened and to help you get your life back. People often discover new skills, strengths, and internal resources that either they never knew they had or that they have only now developed.
        • I also want you to know that if you or your family member is a victim of violent crime, you may be eligible for therapy at no cost to you.
      • Acts Of War
    • Accident
      • Car Accident
      • Other
    • Natural Disaster
      • Earthquake
      • Fire
      • Flood
      • Other
    • Traumatic Experience Resulting From Normal Development
      • Not An Incident Trauma That Occurs In Childhood
        • We typically fail to recognize how truly traumatic the experiences of normal development are, for all of us. None of us grow up unscathed. In our work together, I am very aware of this aspect and can help you to appreciate how deeply some of your experiences may have affected you in the past and continue to affect you in the present. This can then help you to deal with them more easily, and it is an important aspect of being able to “move on.”
    • Left untreated, traumatic experiences can result in emotional wounds that may create substantial, lasting damage to a person’s psychological and emotional development, relationships, and maybe even their ability to function in daily living.
    • However, with treatment, you may be able to integrate your traumatic experience so that it does not significantly interfere with your daily living.
