What is trauma and PTSD?

Trauma is a deep emotional wound. It occurs when the brain’s neural-network system is injured as a result of a painful experience. PTSD stands for post-traumatic stress disorder. Adverse childhood experiences are often the cause of trauma. But, trauma can arise following a traumatic event in childhood or adulthood.

There are many forms of trauma that can affect your day-to-day living. Here are some examples:

Childhood Trauma

Racial Trauma

Intergenerational Trauma

War Trauma

Relationship Trauma

Complex PTSD

Near-death Experience


Domestic Abuse

Sexual Abuse

Physical/Emotional Abuse


Our effective and holistic trauma therapy and PTSD treatment specialists can help you find relief from your inner struggle and pain. Thus, enabling you to connect with yourself and others for a more fulfilled life.

Trauma and the Brain

The stress caused by trauma damages your brain. It can cause emotional and cognitive problems. Which, in turn, affects your ability to connect with yourself and your loved ones. This disconnect can leave you feeling alienated.

All types of trauma can make you feel shame. Shame makes it difficult for you to open up and connect with others around you. It’s this internalized shame and lack of self that causes you to push away your loved ones.

But, it doesn’t have to be this way. Our trauma therapists help people like you learn to love themselves again. So, you can restore your relationship with yourself and those around you.
