You are not alone.


Many adults with a history of trauma blame their unhappiness on their own shortcomings and may think that their shortcomings reflect some sort of personal failure or internal flaw.  Adults who grow up with childhood trauma often struggle to trust others and feel secure within themselves or the world. And, because the trauma may have occurred decades ago, adults also struggle to connect their present struggles with their experiences in childhood.  It is very common for adults with a history of childhood trauma to feel anxious, on-edge and self-conscious most of the time. Some find themselves in unsatisfying careers or relationships without knowing why. Often times, making it difficult to trust your own feelings or instincts and unable to communicate affectively. Thus, unresolved childhood trauma can leave a lasting mark on your life, making positive change difficult on your own.

Children develop beliefs and coping skills that they will use for the rest of their lives. When children grow up in continuously unsafe situations or face a single traumatic event, such as a car accident or natural disaster, those children learn that the world is a dangerous, unpredictable place. Children experiencing trauma develop coping skills to help them survive. These initial coping strategies are often learned & modeled by their family of origin.  Often times, those coping mechanisms stop being effective as the child grows up into an adult, leading to communication and relationship issues, unhealthy coping skill, unhealthy boundaries and other challenges. Fortunately, trauma therapy at Discovery & Wellness Counseling, provides a safe environment for you to explore your past and begin to develop new, more effective coping mechanisms. Discovery and Wellness Counseling can provide the help and support you need to better understand your painful memories.
