Trauma is an emotional, physical, and psychological response to a distressing event or experience. Many people will go through some form of trauma in their life. This can include a car accident, the death of a loved one, unhealthy relationships, and childhood experiences.
While a traumatic event can leave its mark, thankfully, there are ways to manage its aftermath, such as trauma-informed therapy.
Our online trauma-focused therapy sessions are available across Ohio and can help you identify symptoms that were developed because of your trauma and methods to heal from the events, so it does not continue to negatively impact you.
Our experienced licensed therapists offer online counseling to adults in the state of Ohio seeking to enhance their quality of life and relationships. We provide a safe non-judgmental space.
Have you been through a traumatic experience that has left you feeling anxious, fearful, or hopeless? It may feel as if you are stuck in cycles where you experience intense emotional pain, as well as symptoms of anxiety or depression. This can be especially painful if something occurs out of the blue and you feel powerless in the situation.
Typically, we think of emotional responses, but trauma can also cause physical symptoms. It is not uncommon to experience symptoms such as headaches, stomachaches, and fatigue related to your unresolved trauma.
Unresolved trauma can impact every aspect of your day-to-day life, including your job, sleep, social life, and more. Many who have experienced trauma feel trapped in their pain and its limitations. While this is understandable, it does not have to be forever. Healing is possible.
Trauma can occur in many different forms, such as physical and sexual abuse, accidents, natural disasters, or exposure to violent situations. The effects of these events are not always apparent right away, but they can have profound influences on our lives.
Sometimes trauma is not one event; it can be the accumulation of many smaller events over time. This includes repeated and prolonged trauma such as exposure to domestic violence or abuse, unhealthy childhood, exposure to war and combat, and sexual abuse.
Some people experience shock and denial immediately after the event. Longer-term reactions can include unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, strained relationships, and physical symptoms like headaches, nausea, or insomnia.
When you have experienced a traumatic event, it is normal to have some difficulty adjusting and coping. If you find your symptoms interfere with your everyday life including your ability to function in social and work settings and relationships, you may be experiencing unhealed or unaddressed trauma.
When we experience something traumatic, this can be any sudden life change, our body responds physiologically. Our bodies are designed to fight, flight, or freeze—physiologically and emotionally—in reaction to a traumatic event.
If we are unable to heal from the stress of a particular event, it can linger and feel stuck in the body and mind. Therapy sessions can help you process the traumatic event or experience while learning to identify your positive and productive coping skills so that you can heal from it.
Trauma can cause you to feel as though you have been carrying a weight on your shoulders for years. It is possible that you have difficulties feeling safe or trusting others. You are not alone in this experience and if this sounds familiar, it might be time to address your trauma once and for all with trauma-focused therapy.
Trauma is not a weakness. It is also not something that you are meant to live with forever. Whether you have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), complex post-traumatic stress disorder (CPTSD), Acute Stress Disorder, or have experienced any form of trauma, getting help is the best way forward.
Therapy can help you begin to feel like yourself again, restore your sense of safety and security in the world, reconnect with your true self, and give you much more certainty about what is next in your life.
Trauma is a unique experience that impacts each person differently. There is no one specific timeline for processing and overcoming trauma. Working with a trauma specialist that is knowledgeable in trauma-informed care is important.
At Healing Without Limits, you will experience warm, compassionate care with treatment plans created to meet your unique needs in a safe space that allows you to explore the roots of your symptoms and develop skills to create lasting change.
Our trauma therapists in Ohio are highly knowledgeable in helping people heal from various forms of trauma and abuse, and can assist you in developing healthier relationships, overcoming feelings of shame, and learning new skills to overcome challenges.
