Therapy Issues

Relational Trauma

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

  • Depression and/or anxiety (including generalized anxiety).
  • Self-harming or self-sabotaging behaviors.
  • Chronic patterns of challenges and dysfunction in relationships.
  • Feeling emotionally flooded and overwhelmed easily.
  • Having a compulsive need to numb out and escape through behaviors and dependency habits.

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

  • You can’t make the progress you want in your career because you seem to keep self-sabotaging.
  • All of your relationships seem to be chaotic and you can’t understand why. 
  • You struggle with shame and self-hatred.
  • You feel very disconnected from your body and emotions.
  • You long to create a healthy family of your own but you have no idea if this will ever be possible for you.

You’re wondering…

  • Is what I’m going through actually relational trauma? 
  • Why am I not over my childhood yet? It was so long ago…
  • Can someone as “broken” as I feel actually have a happy and good life?
  • Is there hope for me?

You’re longing for…

  • A chance to have a happy life, just like people who come from non-trauma backgrounds.
  • Good, fulfilling relationships – the kind that respects your boundaries, supports you, and uplifts you.
  • The experience of actually liking yourself and doing the things that people who like themselves do.
  • A chance to not feel so much emotional pain.
  • 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 relational trauma.
