TRAUMA THERAPY

It’s not your fault that someone hurt you, and it’s not your fault that something bad happened to you that has changed your life and the way you view the world. You may feel like you are alone, not sure whom to talk to, and may even be doubting that you can feel better.

 

You may feel as though you have lost everything; you feel empty, confused, scared, and unsure of how to begin to process and heal.

It’s okay; you don’t need to have all the answers, but you can begin to heal, and your life does not need to be consumed by what has happened. You will heal, and I can help.
