Trauma Therapy in Chicago, Illinois & Iowa

Trauma can come in many forms, from childhood physical and sexual abuse, to emotional neglect, to the "micro-traumas" of a persistently invalidating environment, to rape, violence, war, and natural disasters. Unfortunately, trauma is an inevitable aspect of life. Some people experience severe and persistent trauma in life, some people experience single incident traumas, and others have seemingly "normal" childhoods and lives. But, one persons benign event could be another persons trauma. It's not about the actual details of the occurrence, but more about the context in which the occurrence finds itself.

Trauma in its simplest form is a life-changing event. When we speak of trauma we think of it as a painful experience that changes life in a negative way. We aim to take those negative and painful life experiences and make sense of them, so that you can create a new narrative of your experience and overcome your hardships. Sometimes this means making a positive life change, e.g., somebody channeling their pain into political action or serving others in some profession or volunteer capacity. Other times it's a process of getting to the point where you can say, "It's not my fault. I'm not damaged. I'm lovable" - and that could make all the difference.
