“You are not broken.”
Trauma is not defined by what happens TO you, but about how your brain interprets safety and danger. ANYTHING that is too much, too fast, or too soon can register in your system as trauma. We ALL have it to some degree.
Wait….trauma? But I’ve never been to war or had anything major happen to me. How can I have trauma?
The body never lies. If you are experiencing symptoms, it’s possible that there might be unaddressed trauma.
The good news? Many hear the word "therapy" and think they'll have to re-tell all their stories. Cutting edge research confirms that is NOT true. You can heal without re-experiencing your past. You can heal even if you can’t remember your past at all.
Trauma is NOT an illness. It is an INJURY, and it CAN heal.
