Cherry Hill Trauma Therapy

Trauma Therapy in Cherpry Hill, NJ

“Anything that’s human is mentionable and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we know we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting and less scary. The people we trust with that important talk can help us know that we are not alone”
– Fred Rogers

Diagnosis for a type of trauma experienced calls for therapy for extreme times. We offer intelligent trauma therapists for either short or long-term counseling. These specialists are educated and experienced to work with individuals who have suffered some extreme, shattering events in their lives. If you feel you are one of those individuals you have come to the right place. At Thriveworks Cherry Hill Counseling we are here for you!

Trauma can cause severe reactions that have a major impact on a person’s life, making it difficult to function at times. Depending on the severity of the trauma, it can cause after effects known as post-traumatic stress (PTS) causing symptoms such as:

  • Anxiety attacks
  • Panic attacks
  • Violence
  • Anger
  • Severe depression
  • Aggressiveness
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Social withdrawal
  • Feelings of hopelessness
  • Self-blame and guilt

Physical symptoms:

  • Muscle tension
  • Aches, pains, and spasms
  • Sexual disfunction
  • Increased heartrate
  • Insomnia

Short term therapy is when an individual experienced a traumatic event and is having difficulty moving forward from it. This therapeutic process acts as a effective emergency treatment and is designed to help a client to cope with the after effects triggered by a certain event. Some ground work will help the suffering individual move towards a plan of healing to move past the effects and undesired pain caused by a certain experience.

Long-term counseling is intended for individuals that have suffered from extreme experiences repeatedly or long periods of time. This is where our Thriveworks professionals step in and counsel individuals that are struggling to manage their intense, traumatic emotions. This process is used help the client to rebuild secure life and recover from undesired effects of trauma.

Child treatment differs from adult treatment and the severity is also a deciding factor for effectiveness of the treatment process. Psychotherapy is commonly used to treat trauma disorders. The patient is taught ways to cope and prevent stressful situations. The type of psychotherapy that is offered is individual or group therapy. We also offer the following;

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): enables individuals to heal from the effects and emotional distress that is disrupting everyday life.
  • Somatic Experiencing: teaches that trauma is not caused by the event itself, rather it develops based on how the body and the nervous system perceives the circumstance.
  • Equine Assisted Therapy: teaches how to navigate through interpersonal relationships and build trust, communication, boundary setting and mindfulness of feelings and emotions.

Our team of highly skilled and passionate therapists at Thriveworks Cherry Hill Counseling are excited to help you on the path to recovery today. Please don’t hesitate to call us at 856-208-4396 today!

Thriveworks Review

★★★★★
I have been meeting with Greg Miller since February. His kindness, compassion and down to earth approach has helped me to achieve positive changes for my mental well-being. Meeting with Greg each week has allowed me to discuss problems both big and small and to feel more secure with my self-agency, to feel acceptance in my relationships, and to work on myself (self-confidence, career goals, etc.). I highly recommend Greg (as well as Thrive-works) to any individual seeking mental health services.

Collin Meyer

★★★★★
I met Collin Meyer less than 5 years ago and in that short time, I have come to know him as a man of incredible integrity and many, many talents. What sets Collin apart from so many other people is his willingness to share his talents and our non profit has been the recipient of that generosity. He has a great sense of humor and deep respect for the beliefs of others.

Beyond a “therapist”

★★★★★
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Rachel. I've been in therapy for most of my (talking) life, and only she has helped me, connected with me, cooperated with me, guided me, in a way I never thought possible. There is a Hebrew word, "Bashe'rt" - It roughly means, "meant to be". Our meeting was Bashe'rt. She was the light during a very dark time and continues to be the torch leading the way. Rachel is first and foremost, genuine and kind. She remembers just about everything (so no need to repeat yourself), she has a great sense of humor, which balances perfectly with her professionalism, and counseling expertise. Yet, she is also very compassionate and understanding. She makes me feel safe, even if we do a tele-session. If I'm feeling overwhelmed in any way, she is able to help me ground myself and relax, in under 3 minutes. Seriously. She's THAT good. There is a rating scale below, asking to rate 1-5 *... 5 being the best option, yet not a nearly high enough number to rate Rachel. (On a completely different note, the building's bathrooms are "meh". I just suggest pre-bathrooming before you come for a session.)
