Healing Old Wounds


Traumatic childhood events deeply imprint themselves on our psyche, and their influence can be observed long after the original trauma has passed. While some people suffer immediate devastating effects, for others the full scope of traumatic impact does not emerge until years later. Events such as physical, emotional, and sexual abuse, divorce, witnessing violence, exposure to war or terrorist acts, or experiencing a natural disaster in your formative years can profoundly influence you emotionally, behaviorally, and socially, disrupting your ability to function. The psychological scarring of trauma can manifest in a wide range of mental health disorders, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, mood disorders, dissociative disorders, and anxiety disorders, as well as playing a central role in the development of personality disorders. Left untreated, the traumatic events can come to color your whole world, fracturing your sense of self, isolating you from those around you, and leaving you feeling unable to move forward.
