Is Underlying Trauma Intruding On Your Life?

Did something happen to you that was sudden, shocking, or painful? Did a bad break up, divorce, or separation make you regularly feel on edge or triggered, even in otherwise normal situations? As a result, are you experiencing hypervigilance, dysregulated emotions, or an inability to trust?

Experiencing profoundly stressful or life-changing events often leads us to adopt specific behaviors, routines, or coping mechanisms aimed at restoring a feeling of security in our lives. Amidst grappling with insecurities and self-doubt, our mental well-being can falter, leaving us with an enduring, indescribable unease. When a multitude of symptoms such as depression, anxiety, panic, and strained relationships coalesce, trauma often emerges as the underlying cause.


How Is Trauma Manifesting In Your Life?

If you've faced distressing experiences, you might find yourself striving to maintain control over your surroundings, whether by dwelling on worst-case scenarios or avoiding certain people, places, or situations. It's possible that you turn to food or substances to numb your true emotions, or you blame yourself for what occurred, struggling to move past it.

When stress and trauma remain unaddressed, they can engender deep-seated feelings of shame and self-criticism. Among trauma survivors, depression often manifests in self-destructive behaviors, feelings of worthlessness, or a pervasive sense of despair. Anxiety can manifest physically, with symptoms such as intense fear, nightmares, flashbacks, and an inability to relax. Left untreated, these symptoms risk compromising your work performance, relationships, and overall well-being.

Thankfully, trauma is not insurmountable. Neshma Soul Therapy offers highly effective treatment methods utilizing Dialetical Behavioral Therapy modality in combination with Narrative focused therapy, EMDR, and Emotional Focused Therapy modalities designed to help you understand your trauma, resett your thoughts surrounding your trauma and its impact on your life, and process it in a safe way that will allow you to heal.


Counseling for Anxiety

Is anxiety overwhelming your life? Do you feel unable to control it despite your best efforts? Have previous therapy attempts proven ineffective?

If this resonates with you, I’m confident I can help. My practice offers the most effective treatments to provide the relief from anxiety that you deserve.

Research shows that therapy is typically the most effective option for treating anxiety disorders. Unlike anxiety medication, therapy addresses more than just the symptoms.

Common symptoms of anxiety include:

  • Nervousness, restlessness, or tension
  • Feelings of danger, panic, or dread
  • Rapid breathing or hyperventilation
  • Increased or heavy sweating
  • Trembling or muscle twitching
  • Weakness or lethargy
  • Difficulty focusing or thinking clearly
  • Insomnia
  • Obsessions about certain ideas, indicative of obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Anxiety related to past events or experiences, indicative of post-traumatic stress disorder

Therapy can help uncover the underlying causes of your worries and fears, teach you how to relax, reframe situations in a less frightening way, and develop better coping mechanisms and problem-solving skills.
