Trauma Informed

Trauma Therapy

Anything life event that causes emotional, physical, or psychological harm can lead to traumatization. Most Black and Brown people experience a traumatic event in their lifetime because of systemic and interpersonal racism. Examples of a traumatic event are a car accident, physical or sexual abuse, separation from a caregiver, the sudden death of a loved one, exposure to a violent criminal act or police brutality, or even a natural disaster.

Some people can recover from trauma over time with the support of family and friends. However, this is not true for everyone. If you are still feeling deep emotional pain, have flashbacks or memories of the event, feel unsafe, and worry about the worse thing happening, you could benefit from trauma informed therapy.

Working with a therapist who has training in trauma treatment approaches could help you with recovery and healing.
