Trauma Therapists and Counselors in Centennial, CO—Therapy, Counseling
Trauma is a distressing experience that causes an individual negative psychological effects. These events can vary greatly; examples include: physical as well as emotional abuse, natural disasters, military combat, the death of a loved one, a car accident or plane crash, and getting bullied. A wide range of experiences can prove traumatic and have a long or lasting impact on the individual who witnessed it.
Fortunately, therapy proves effective in treating victims of trauma as well as those who developed post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in the aftermath. Several forms of therapy are particularly effective, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (trauma focused), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and psychodynamic psychotherapy. In any case, if you have experienced trauma, trauma therapy can prove to help you to better manage your trauma symptoms, come to terms with your experience, and ultimately live better.

How Does Trauma Therapy Work?
As we mentioned above, there are several types of therapy that can help victims of trauma and individuals with PTSD. You could benefit from CBT, EMDR, psychodynamic psychotherapy, or another form of trauma therapy, depending on your specific experience, symptoms, and needs. A great place to start is thinking about what goals you have for trauma therapy. For example:
