Trauma Therapy

Dealing with trauma is a unfortunate part of the human experience. Traumatic events and circumstances occur in various forms and life stages. You are not to blame for your trauma, nor should you be ashamed about seeking help to cope with it. 

Trauma Therapy from Tri-Star Counseling helps you navigate life’s challenges with more purpose, ambition, and confidence. Our team knows how to help you face the traumas of your past and present, learn to overcome their negative influences, and become a better person ready to get on with your life. 

Could I Benefit from Trauma Therapy?

Trauma stems from deeply disturbing or trying experiences. These experiences differ for everyone. For example, they can come from a car accident, abusive relationship, childhood memory, school event, military service, or things you’ve been exposed to on the job. 

The following are just some of the symptoms you may experience that indicate trauma therapy could be right for you: 

  • Intrusive thoughts
  • Impatience or a short temper 
  • Troubling memories or dreams 
  • Being easily frightened or startled
  • Avoiding situations that remind you of the trauma
  • Mood swings
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Debilitating fear or anger when faced with a similar situation that caused the trauma 

If you see yourself or a loved one here, trauma therapy with a compassionate and qualified therapist can help.

What Can I Expect During Trauma Therapy from Tri-Star Counseling?

Trauma Therapy consists of 50-minute, one-on-one sessions that help you resolve your concerns. In addition to listening, your therapist will guide you toward solutions and motivate you with ideas. Your therapist plays an active role. Here’s how it works:

  1. We provide a safe, accepting space so that you will feel comfortable sharing your struggles.
  2. Through hearing your story, your therapist will start understanding your challenges.
  3. Your therapist will start helping you with immediate concerns like managing difficult emotions and challenging life situations. 
  4. Your therapist will also work to discover your goals in therapy and life.
  5. Keeping your unique goals in mind, we’ll figure out what’s needed to help you reach them.
  6. You will start progressing toward your desired life over our sessions.

You and your therapist will determine together how many sessions you need and how often you should meet. Be sure to ask your therapist any questions or share any scheduling challenges. We are available to work around many schedules for your convenience.

Trauma Therapy and PTSD

Trauma therapy is a leading treatment for those who have PTSD. “Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a psychiatric disorder that may occur in people who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event, series of events or set of circumstances.” 

You may be diagnosed with PTSD if you routinely experience: 

  • Intense, disturbing thoughts and feelings related to a traumatic experience
  • Flashbacks or nightmares where you relive a traumatic experience
  • Feelings of anger, fear, or sadness 
  • Detachment from normal relationships 
  • Strong adverse reactions to loud or sudden noises or inadvertent touching
