Developmental and relational trauma (DART)

Not every child grows up in a home that is emotional, physically, spiritually, or sexually safe. Even well-meaning parents sometimes say and do things that leave negative impressions on developing minds. How children make sense of painful and difficult events is a major focus of Developmental and Relational Trauma Therapy. 

A need to strive for perfection yet feeling as though you are never good enough, always feeling inferior to others (less-than), the inability to maintain healthy boundaries with others, difficulty in managing your emotions, depression, or being "hyper-vigilant" and always keeping your guard up are just some of the symptoms of developmental and relational trauma. 

This is not about blaming our parents. This is about getting the story straight regarding the influences that have worked together to create our ways of seeing ourselves and others as adults. Our therapists have advanced training helping resolve the problems of a "less than perfect past."

Sexual, physical, emotional, and spiritual Abuse

Abuse comes in many forms. So does healing. 

Sexual, physical and emotional abuse may be defined broadly as any behavior that another person perpetrated upon you without your permission that causes you to feel pain, to think less of your self, or to diminish your sense of safety. Such experiences of abuse often leave a person wondering, "What does this mean?" How could this happen?" or "Is there something wrong with me that would cause this to happen?"

Our therapists have experience in helping individuals sort out the tough questions about past events. Call today to begin the healing process and finding peace.
