Have you experienced a traumatic event that’s still impacting your life? Therapist Donna Quach of Burbank, CA, offers trauma therapy to help you get to the other side.

Experiencing Trauma and How Therapy Can Help

Traumatic events happen around the world every day, but not all of them hit the news. Many of them happen on a much smaller, very personal level. Some are a one-time event, while others are recurring. When they do occur, the victims suffer from the impact for months, years, or even their entire lives.

Sadly, people on the outside of the event often think that at some point, the victim should be able to just pick up the pieces and move on. Unfortunately, not everyone can heal so easily, and these thoughts from outsiders can alienate the victims.

The good news is that – while it takes time – trauma therapy can help victims move past the impact. Below, therapist Donna Quach of Burbank, CA, shares how traumatic events can impact your life and how therapy can help.

Impact of Traumatic Events

Any event that causes an intense emotional response can fall into the definition of trauma. This can be anything, including bullying at school, sexual assault, natural disasters, war, racism, medical trauma, and more.

As it can be so versatile, the exact impact can vary. However, there are some common issues that victims deal with, such as those below.

  • Flashbacks of the event
  • Difficulty sleeping or recurring nightmares
  • Avoiding a place, person, or situation
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Social isolation
  • Constantly feeling on edge
  • Physical symptoms, such as headaches and stomach issues

Symptoms such as these can make life difficult. It can be hard to maintain relationships and jobs, as well as many other life factors.

How Trauma Therapy Can Help

The goal of therapy is not to discredit your experience or your feelings towards it or to tell you to get over it. Instead, it is designed to help you process your emotions and thoughts about the event.

One way this occurs is through confronting any beliefs that the event has shaped. Often, traumatic events determine how we view the world, people, and ourselves. Therapy can help you identify these beliefs and replace them with more helpful ones.

Therapy is also effective in getting victims to a point where they can talk and think about the event without feeling anxious. Additionally, it helps you better function in daily life, along with many more benefits.
