What does a first session with you look like?

Here are some common outcomes clients can expect to achieve from trauma therapy: 1. **Emotional Regulation:** Clients will learn strategies to better manage their emotions, including techniques for coping with anxiety, anger, sadness, and other intense feelings that often result from trauma. 2. **Trauma Processing:** Clients can expect to explore and process the traumatic events they have experienced. This may involve discussing and understanding the traumatic memories, thoughts, and emotions associated with them. 3. **Symptom Reduction:** Many clients experience symptoms like flashbacks, nightmares, hypervigilance, and insomnia following trauma. Trauma therapy aims to reduce or eliminate these distressing symptoms. 4. **Increased Self-awareness:** Clients will gain a deeper understanding of themselves and how trauma has affected their thoughts, behaviors, and relationships. This self-awareness can be empowering and lead to personal growth. 5. **Improved Coping Skills:** Therapists will teach clients healthy coping strategies to replace maladaptive ones that may have developed as a result of trauma. This can include mindfulness techniques, relaxation exercises, and problem-solving skills. 6. **Enhanced Resilience:** Clients can develop resilience, the ability to bounce back from adversity, through therapy. They will learn how to better adapt to stressors and challenges in life. 7. **Strengthened Relationships:** Trauma often affects personal relationships. Through therapy, clients can work on improving communication, trust, and intimacy in their relationships. 8. **Empowerment:** Clients may gain a sense of empowerment and control over their lives as they work through their trauma. This can lead to increased self-confidence and a greater sense of agency. 9. **Reduced Shame and Guilt:** Many trauma survivors grapple with feelings of shame or guilt related to the traumatic event. Therapy can help clients address and lessen these feelings. 10. **Integration and Closure:** Ultimately, the goal of trauma therapy is to help clients integrate their traumatic experiences into their life narratives and find a sense of closure. While the trauma may never be forgotten, it can become a part of their history rather than an ongoing source of distress. Building a trusting and supportive therapeutic relationship is a critical aspect of trauma therapy, as it provides a safe space for clients to explore and heal from their traumatic experiences.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

Key elements of integrative trauma therapy may include: 1. **Assessment:** Thoroughly assessing the individual's trauma history, symptoms, and their current psychological and emotional state. 2. **Multiple Approaches:** Incorporating a range of therapeutic approaches, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, somatic therapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), and psychodynamic therapy, among others. 3. **Customization:** Tailoring the therapy to the unique needs and preferences of the individual, recognizing that what works for one person may not work for another. 4. **Safety and Stabilization:** Focusing on establishing a sense of safety and emotional stability before delving into traumatic memories or experiences. 5. **Trauma-Informed Care:** Employing a trauma-informed approach that recognizes the impact of trauma on a person's life and avoids re-traumatization. 6. **Emotional Regulation:** Teaching individuals coping skills to manage overwhelming emotions and triggers. 7. **Body-Based Approaches:** Incorporating somatic or body-based techniques to address the physical manifestations of trauma. 8. **Resourcing:** Identifying and utilizing an individual's internal and external resources to support their healing process. 9. **Attachment and Relationship Work:** Recognizing the importance of addressing attachment issues and the role of relationships in trauma recovery. 10. **Long-Term Support:** Recognizing that trauma recovery may be an ongoing process, and therapy may continue over an extended period.
