You Can Move Past Your Past With Trauma Therapy in Summit County, CO
You can't change the past. But, you can learn to move through the pain and into a happier more connected life.
At Grit Therapy, we use evidence-based best practices like CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), and mindfulness. These approaches help clients process their trauma and live their best life.
Trauma can take many forms including:
Physical and sexual abuse
Religious and cult trauma
Hospital or healthcare-related trauma
Oppression due to race, gender, or sexuality
Critical, distant, or absent parenting
The death of a loved one
Trauma is defined as anything that is outside of our ability to cope, or our general sense of the world. Trauma can be a single overwhelming event or a series of events. We also experience attachment trauma over time. This occurs through our upbringing and how others treat us in social, school, or work settings.
Our systems become overwhelmed during experiences of trauma. As a result, our systems aren't able to actually process what is happening to us. Unprocessed trauma can lead to difficulty right after the event, and later in life in the form of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Your past traumas may be affecting you if you are experiencing:
Unexplained physical problems
Loss of interest in daily life
Let us help you reclaim your life with trauma therapy
How is trauma therapy in Summit County, CO different than regular therapy?
With a trauma-informed approach, your therapist will use their knowledge of neuroscience, human development, attachment theory, and the mind/body connection. Your trauma therapist will develop a treatment plan tailored to your unique needs. A trauma lens helps your therapist understand how your past experiences affect your current thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Together, you can make lasting changes instead of living in the past.
Why do my past experiences still matter?
Can't I just leave them behind?
You are not your past. You do not have to be defined by negative events that have happened to you. But, we have learned that trauma can get stored in our minds and our bodies. Because trauma overwhelms our systems, it is often stored in a way that is problematic for us. It can be easy to internalize negative beliefs about ourselves or the world. We can often have a feeling of being "stuck" in our past experiences or relationships.
Luckily, we have been studying and learning about trauma for many years. There are many safe and effective ways to treat trauma that lead to freedom and happiness. If you're unsure if working with Grit Therapy is a good fit for you, call us today to set up a free consultation. One of our experienced trauma therapists would be happy to talk to you. We would be happy to answer any questions that you might have.
