Professional Trauma- informed care to help you move forward and thrive

Most people have experienced some sort of trauma in their life. Some people experienced childhood trauma, while others may have had their first traumatic experience as adults. It has been found that six out of ten men, and five out of ten women have experienced at least one traumatic event in their lives. Many people are able to recover from these events and live normal lives, but others suffer long term effects that impact their daily functioning. At The Ohana, we utilize trauma informed care to help you go from surviving, to thriving.

How To heal from Trauma

Trauma is often described by mental health experts as a psychic wound. Similar to injuries to the skin or bones, traumatic wounds that haven’t fully healed can continue to inflict pain. Trauma wounds heal through emotional processing. Internal and external circumstances can make it more difficult to process traumatic experiences.

Due to how the brain responds to trauma, many people try to avoid their traumatic memories or the feelings they trigger. In other cases, family or societal norms may make it difficult for people to discuss their trauma openly. Stress, illness, and other factors can also prevent people from taking care of trauma wounds. This delays emotional processing and causes trauma wounds to remain raw.

Symptoms of trauma disorders

Symptoms of trauma disorders depend on a variety of factors include the age the trauma was experienced, whether it was ongoing or a one time event, what resources were available to process the trauma, and more. Below are a few symptoms people may experience in their attempt to cope and live with past trauma.

Identifying the traumatic event, or events that led to the development of a mental disorder may be helpful in guiding an individual’s healing. Once the trauma (s) has been identified, the individual and their mental health practitioner may tap into various therapies and coping strategies that make living life easier.

Trauma can impact a person physically, emotionally, and spiritually, so having a variety of treatment options is key for an individual’s healing. At The Ohana we offer a number of evidence-based treatment modalities such as cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and psychodynamic therapy to help people deal with the emotional and cognitive impacts of trauma.
