Morgan Hill Trauma Counseling

Trauma Counseling in Morgan Hill, CA

Trauma is any situation that shakes one to the core and is beyond their control. Sadly, examples can include: a car wreck, violence, abuse, rape, abortion, or many other types of events.

Whatever your situation, Morgan Hill Trauma Counseling is here to walk with you through any problems you are facing. If left untreated, a trauma could ultimately lead to mental disorders or even suicide. Recovery from trauma is a process, but we walk with you to recovery.

Traumas are able to influence people in various negative ways (i.e., making unhealthy decisions) without even being remembered. They can overwhelm a person’s usual adaptations or coping mechanisms to life.

When an individual undergoes a trauma, each component of their ordinary response to danger continues to occur in an altered state for a long time after any actual danger is over. Individuals experience profound and lasting change in their psychological arousal, memory, cognition, and emotion. For a long time after the trauma occurs, the individual does not feel safe.

Symptoms of trauma include: intense fear, panic disorders, anger, depression, loneliness, flashbacks, attachment disorders, loss of control, helplessness, and threat of annihilation. Sometimes panic, anger, flashbacks, and anxiety contribute to an individual being diagnosed with having Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Traumatic reactions occur when the individual is exposed to a situation that threatens the wellbeing or life of that individual or another. In such situations when an individual is unable to either escape or resist, their system of self-defense becomes disorganized and overwhelmed. As a result, a traumatized individual becomes hyper-vigilant and behaves as if their nervous system has been disconnected from the present.

If you are facing any of these issues, we would love to walk along side you and help.
