Counseling for Trauma That You’ve Never Talked About

Many people bottle up trauma, pushing it deep down. It can be easy to fall into the trap of thinking that if you never speak of it or acknowledge it, it has no power over you. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Trauma you’ve never talked about can greatly damage your thinking and impact your actions.  Maybe you did try to work on trauma in the past, but still feel like it is unresolved.  Whether this trauma is sexual, emotional or physical in nature, we are highly trained and comfortable in treating you. It’s so important to discuss it and process it for true healing to take place.

Never think that your trauma isn’t worth working through. Many people fall into thinking that just because their trauma wasn’t as “bad” as someone else’s, it’s trivial. Again, that isn’t the case. All trauma is important and has an impact on your life. Acknowledging that trauma, working through it, and learning how to process it is necessary in order to take its power away.

That’s what we will help you with here at Monarch Counseling Group. Our goal is to free you from the hold that your trauma has on your life so you no longer feel trapped by it. We are trained and experienced in the most up do date evidenced based trauma treatments.

How We Help​

Opening up about trauma you’ve never shared before can be difficult. We understand that, and one of the first things we will do is make certain you feel comfortable talking about it. There’s no rush—we won’t force you to talk about specifics or even go into any detail. You can use your own words and approach the trauma in your own way.

We know how challenging it can be to talk about events that have left such an impact on your life. The important thing for you to realize is that we understand what challenges you’re facing and what emotions you’re struggling with. We’re going to help you work through those emotions, no matter how long it takes or what approach we need to use.

Once you’ve learned to identify the traumatic events in your life and how to approach those events, we will start working towards your goals. We will help make sure that these goals are realistic and attainable. As you progress towards them, we will also work with you to create new, longer-term goals that you can work confidently towards without worrying that your past trauma may hold you back.

Don’t Let the Past Stop You From Your Future

Traumatic experiences are nothing to take lightly. They can and do have a major impact on nearly all parts of your life, and you do need to give them the attention necessary to process them. While you may not have ever wanted to talk about these experiences, keeping them pushed down will trigger symptoms and make it difficult to move forward.

We will help you learn to process the feelings you have about your trauma so you can begin the healing process. As you do, you can move forward without the past pulling you down.
