Common Myth: If you're “strong” you can make it through trauma without reaching out for help.
If your present life and wellbeing are negatively affected by something that happened in the past, you might be suffering from trauma or maybe even post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Trauma therapy can help.
Here at Vivid Therapy, we don’t label you as “having a disorder”, we see through the lens of what you’ve experienced as an injury. Whether that be mentally, morally, physically, or emotionally. We’ll help you see that what you’re feeling isn’t “wrong”.
-Feeling “on edge”
-Avoidance of things that trigger a painful memory
-Feelings of sadness or hopelessness
-Feeling disconnected or numb
-Guilt and shame
-Increased substance use
You might also...
-Feel intense unpleasant emotions like fear, anger, or guilt
-Find yourself thinking about the event when you don’t want to
-Have nightmares about the event, impacting your sleep
-Feel unsafe and want to avoid situations that make you feel uncomfortable
Trauma is more common than you think…
70% of adults in the U.S. have experienced some type of traumatic event at least once in their lives. That's 223.4 million people. You’re not alone.
Trauma is anything that suddenly disrupts your sense of wellbeing. It can be caused by…
a car accident
a sudden loss
witnessing or experiencing violence
experiencing emotional abuse
…and much more.
In trauma therapy, we’ll help you understand the mechanisms of trauma and your unique triggers through a blend of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), exposure therapy, and mindfulness training.
Our approach to treating trauma and PTSD is evidence-based, which means we only use therapies that have been proven effective through repeated academic trials.
We’ll give you powerful tools you can start using as soon as the first session.
Recovery really is possible.
