Trauma, whether physical, sexual, or emotional, can have long-lasting effects. Unfortunately, trauma can interfere with more than just your memories of an event – it can cause problems with your social life and intimate relationships.
Fortunately, we at Westlake Christian Counseling, know that God did not create us to live in fear or worry. In Deuteronomy 20:3, the Lord says, “Do not let your heart faint, do not be afraid, and do not tremble or be terrified because of them.”
We realize that reading that verse and feeling courageous after a traumatic event can seem like opposites. That’s okay. God knows your deepest thoughts, hurts, and worries. We are here to help you through with our trauma counseling service to heal and move past the pain and into your purpose.
We use personalized psychological methods to assist you in changing your thoughts and behaviors about the event. Instead of experiencing dread and terror with the memory, you will learn to use that sensation to feel confident and at peace. This is a peace that is only available when you combine therapy with the peace and grace of Jesus Christ.
We help clients who suffer trauma from:
- Childhood abuse – physical, sexual, and/or emotional
- Abandonment and neglect
- Adult or senior abuse
- Grief or loss
- Natural disaster
- Witnessing a traumatic event
- Veteran combat trauma
Trauma can work its way into creating relationship problems, anxiety, depression, mood swings, and memory loss.
