Therapy Issues

Attachment Trauma

Right now, as a result of your unresolved attachment trauma background, you may be experiencing…

  • Chronic patterns of challenges and dysfunction in relationships.
  • Shame and low self-esteem, a sense that you’re worthless.
  • Few or no memories, feeling like your childhood is a fog or a big blank.
  • Feeling emotionally flooded and overwhelmed easily.
  • Poor boundaries and challenges standing up for yourself.

You’re realizing that your unresolved attachment trauma is getting in the way of your life…

  • You can’t seem to attract let alone keep healthy, functional, mutually supportive relationships in your life.
  • You’re isolating more and more because relationships feel exhausting and draining.
  • You’re noticing you’re drinking more wine, taking more edibles, and binging more at night to keep the painful feelings at bay. 
  • You feel rudderless – like you don’t know where you’re going in life and like you’re treading water.
  • You long to create a family of your own but question your ability to do so because of your past. 

You’re wondering…

  • Is what I went through in my childhood really attachment trauma? Was it even traumatic at all?
  • Shouldn’t I be over this by now? 
  • Is there any hope for me if 20, 30, or 40 years have passed? Is it too late?
  • Can someone as “broken” as I feel actually have a happy and good life?
  • Can trauma therapy actually help me?

You’re longing for…

  • Loving healthy, supportive relationships, the kind you used to dream about having when you watched Friends.
  • That abusive, relentless inner critic voice inside of you to be quiet, to be able to think more supportive and kind thoughts about yourself.
  • An ability to wake up and not feel fearful all day long.
  • A sense of confidence and esteem, not the fake kind, but the real unshakeable kind.
  • An ability to heal whatever may be in your past so that you can have a good adulthood.

What you’re longing for is possible.

At Evergreen Counseling, we have a staff of seasoned, evidence-based therapists skilled in treating attachment trauma.

How we can help you

By pursuing therapy for attachment trauma, you can imagine the following:

A more regulated nervous system. Not every text and relational conflict will feel like a five-alarm fire.

Poor boundaries, either being taken advantage of or walling off all relationships to protect yourself.
