Therapy Issues

Developmental Trauma

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

  • Attachment challenges.
  • Self-harming tendencies. 
  • Few or no memories, feeling like your childhood is a fog or a big blank.
  • Strong, overwhelming somatic and emotional responses with no clear, obvious triggers.
  • A strong sense of despair and hopelessness.

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

  • Your emotions feel stormy almost all day every day.
  • You have a hard time staying present with your life.
  • You have a hard time visualizing a future for yourself, let alone a positive future.
  • You hate yourself and live with extremely critical negative inner voices.
  • You want healthy relationships, but don’t know how to achieve them.

You’re wondering…

  • How can my childhood still be impacting me?
  • 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 to resolve my developmental trauma?
  • Can someone as “broken” as I feel actually have a happy and good life?
  • Does developmental trauma recovery therapy actually work?

You’re longing for…

  • Some sense of being “normal” despite how adverse your childhood experiences were.
  • A chance to get your life actually going and to move past feeling stuck and powerless.
  • A better sense of self and maybe even to actually really like yourself.
  • More choices and options, to deal with your emotions and the painful relationships in your life.
  • To find a pathway forward towards healing.

What you’re longing for is possible.

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