Our lives are busier than they have ever been! Work and family demands keep us constantly on the go with little time free time to pause or relax. The pace is stressful and can take a toll.

Trauma Counseling 

We offer specialized treatment of trauma with the goal of restoring hope and fostering healing with lasting relief from the painful reminders and intrusive symptoms of the past.

Many do not realize they have been traumatized, believing only war veterans develop Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.  But the truth is anyone can experience a traumatic responsewhen they feel their life and safety is threatened in some way.

When a trauma occurs it seems to get locked in the nervous system with the original picture, sounds, thoughts, and feelings. Luber

Simply using talk therapy isn't enough to heal the traumatic wound held in the brain and central nervous system causing the painful memory of the past to be  present interfering with current well being.

Treatments such as EMDR, Brainspotting and Neurofeedback get to the source of the trauma, unlock it and release the way the painful memory holds on to you in the here and now
