Your wounds don’t have to become your identity. They can, however, be the wisdom you need to grow and transform.

Overcoming Trauma

As sad as it is, many people have experienced some type of childhood trauma. Along with childhood trauma, there are many more traumas we can experience in adulthood. People go through incredibly difficult things, such as infidelity, betrayal trauma, addiction, abusive dating experiences, natural disasters, car accidents, health problems, losses and grief, and so much more. The list can go on and on. If you have gone through traumatic experiences in your life, How have the experiences of your past changed you? How are you different now? Your past doesn’t have to define you. It doesn’t need to become your new identity. You are not what happened to you, you are the person who can observe those experiences and grow from them. While you didn’t ask for bad things to happen to you, and while it’s okay to feel grief, sadness, and any other negative emotions, please believe that there’s something better out there waiting for you.


Any experience that causes you to develop self-limiting and negative beliefs about yourself is trauma. No matter how “small” a traumatic experience may seem, it affects you as long as it stays in your body unprocessed. While these negative experiences seem like they are going to weigh you down forever, please know that this is not the case. Painful memories can’t be erased and forgotten, but you can process and let go of the disturbance they carry. You don’t have to carry the heavy energy of the past with you. There’s freedom in letting go.


EMDR For Trauma

Talking about painful memories/trauma may not be enough. This is when EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy can be so helpful. As various experiences occur in our lives they leave an impact on our inner state.  Some experiences get translated into happy memories, making us smile years later when we think of them. Some memories bring up sadness, fear, and anger; and some just pass through you and you forget about them. When disturbing events happen, you resist them, and therefore, don’t allow them to pass through you. Traumatic memories get frozen in time.
The process of EMDR focuses on the past, present and the future. It targets your thoughts, body sensations and feelings; images and insights, beliefs and nonverbal memories. EMDR will take you down memory lane, have you witness your own pain, glance at the part of you that’s scared about the future, give your body a voice so it can share what it’s been holding all these years, and then when it’s done- you will come out of it feeling lighter. Attachment focused EMDR will help you heal and nourish your inner child. EMDR is research based. It works.
