Trauma Recovery

Emotional and psychological trauma is the result of extraordinarily stressful events that destroy your sense of security, making you feel helpless and vulnerable. Recovering from a traumatic experience requires that the painful emotions be thoroughly processed. If they are not dealt with directly, the distressing feelings and troubling events could replay over and over in the course of a lifetime, creating a condition known as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It can take a while to get over the pain and feel safe again, but with the right treatment, self-help strategies, and support, you can heal and move forward.
