Trauma can manifest in various ways, affecting mental and emotional well-being. Recognizing the symptoms is crucial in seeking the right therapeutic intervention. At Shalom Counseling and Consulting, we specialize in trauma-informed approaches that address a spectrum of experiences, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), emotional trauma, childhood trauma, and complex trauma.
Some common trauma symptoms include:
- Flashbacks and intrusive thoughts – This can include distressing memories that intrude upon daily life.
- Emotional dysregulation – Symptoms include intense mood swings, heightened anxiety, or persistent feelings of sadness.
- Avoidance behaviors – People who experience this steer clear of places, people, or situations that trigger traumatic memories.
- Hypervigilance – Hypervigilance means you may feel on edge and are easily startled or constantly alert to potential threats.
Understanding these symptoms is the first step toward trauma treatment. Our trauma-focused therapy is designed to address these symptoms, offering a path towards resilience after trauma.
