Chest pain, sweaty palms, shaky hands, stomach clench, and shortness of breath are not fun. They are causing you a lot of distress and stopping you from being present in your life- school, work, and relationships. It gets even more frustrating and irritating when your doctor can’t figure out a physiological reason for your symptoms. You know that you feel anxious. You might even have bad things that happened to you in the past that led to your anxiety. It’s so hard to be vulnerable and talk about the things that bring up guilt, shame and terror. It might also seem like you are the only one struggling.
Therapy is the space for you to breathe out the hard and heavy air that you have held in for all this time, with a trained expert. Therapy with a trauma and trauma related stress focus is a process of exploration, integration and discovery. You and I will work collaboratively together, at your pace, to develop a new narrative for yourself with self-compassion and acceptance.
With the new insights and tools that you gain through therapy, you can manage your trauma related stress and anxiety more effectively, so you can be more engaged to create a more fulfilling life.
