Life is created by a series of past events. These life events, whether positive or negative, form a person’s view of the world around him or her. That view can sometimes lead to many life dysfunctions. At times, we wish we could have a new beginning. While we cannot completely start over, we can create a new foundation to build upon. Let me help you with that process.
“One does not have to be a combat soldier, or visit a refugee camp in Syria or the Congo to encounter trauma. Trauma happens to us, our friends, our families, and our neighbors.
"Helping people create a stable foundation for life"
Research by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has shown that one in five Americans was sexually molested as a child; one in four was beaten by a parent to the point of a mark being left on their body; and one in three couples engages in physical violence. A quarter of us grew up with alcoholic relatives, and one out of eight witnessed their mother being beaten or hit.” (Bessel van der Kolk, The Body Keeps the Score, 2014).
Trauma is defined as a deeply distressing or disturbing experience. As children, we were not aware that the experiences around us could be identified as trauma. As children, we accepted them as normal. Our minds, behaviors, emotions, and lives formed around those distressing and disturbing experiences. As adults, we find ourselves seeking relief from anxiety, depression, addictions, relationship issues, trust issues, co-dependence, negative thinking, and many other stressful issues.
“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock”
