Therapy Issues

Intergenerational Trauma

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

  • High levels of anxiety and depression that don’t seem rooted in anything concrete.
  • Self-doubt since no one in your family will talk about what’s going on.
  • Self-sabotaging behaviors to cope with the painful feelings inside of you.
  • Low self-esteem and a shaky sense of confidence.
  • A sense that the past is living inside of you but a lack of words about how and a lack of clarity about how to resolve it.

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

  • You struggle with your emotions, feeling them, expressing them, coping with them.
  • You live with a heightened sense of anxiety and hypervigilance that doesn’t reflect your current circumstances. 
  • You feel confused about how to have good, healthy relationships but long for them.
  • You can’t feel comfortable in your body and it’s stopping you from enjoying life. 
  • You experience body aches, pains, and illnesses that don’t reflect your self-care habits.

You’re wondering…

  • What counts as intergenerational trauma? Does what my family went through count?
  • How is it even possible that what my ancestors went through is still impacting me?
  • How can I make the cycles stop with me? Is it too late?
  • How can I heal from intergenerational trauma if no one will talk about what really happened?
  • Will trauma therapy be a support to someone like me?

You’re longing for…

  • The cycles stopping with you. A chance to not pass the trauma down to your own children.
  • A life without anxiety and depression.
  • Freedom and comfort and ease in your body. An ability to actually feel embodied.
  • The ability to seek out, keep and be in functional, healthy relationships.
  • Healthier coping mechanisms and tools to cope with painful feelings when they arise and not to do what your family has always done.

What you’re longing for is possible.

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