St Pete, Clearwater, Tampa Trauma Counseling


Heal the fear and pain and rise up to reclaim your authentic power in safety and peace.

The overwhelming fear and pain that results from being in physical danger of being harmed, molested, or killed is trauma. Domestic violence, muggings, sexual assault, combat, gang violence, bullying, car or airplane crash, mass disaster, and many other instances where people fear for their safety and lives cause trauma, which often results in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Most people widely associate PTSD with an issue so many veterans returning from combat experience, but it actually has a much broader reach, is much more common than people realize, and no one is immune.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) estimates 7.7 million people in the U.S. suffer from PTSD. Most trauma, unfortunately, goes untreated. If you or a loved one is experiencing the results of trauma, please reach out and schedule a consultation. The affects don’t go away on their own, and treatment can be very successful.

The primary symptoms of PTSD include a combination of the following:

  • Intrusive thoughts recalling the traumatic event
  • Nightmares and flashbacks
  • Efforts to avoid feelings and thoughts that either remind you of the traumatic event or that trigger similar feelings
  • Feeling detached or unable to connect with loved ones
  • Depression, hopelessness
  • Feelings of guilt
  • Irritability or angry outbursts
  • Hypervigilance (being overly aware of possible danger)
  • Chronic headaches
  • Disrupted sleep, insomnia

Victims of trauma will often turn to addictive behavior as a way to self-medicate. This addictive behavior may provide a brief escape, but eventually this exacerbates the symptoms and creates more treatment challenges.

I’ve worked with numerous clients over the years with PTSD, including veterans and others from all walks of life. I help people find relief from the troublesome effects of trauma. It’s a priority for me to be well-trained in trauma counseling to help people heal from these emotional wounds.

If you’re suffering from the aftermath of a traumatic event, please call. Let’s discuss possible treatment options and get you on the road to recovery as soon as possible.
