Trauma Healing

The goal of trauma healing is to regain a feeling of control over life, day by day—of moving from fear to safety, from silence or distrust to acknowledgment, from isolation to reconnection, and from powerlessness to a sense of empowerment. Trauma healing is a process that has many stages, may have relapses, and may take several types of treatment. While there are many methods and therapies that can be effective for recovering from trauma, working with the guidance of a professional is usually the most effective place to start.
