Trauma Counseling – Therapists and Counselors in Greenville, SC

Trauma is an emotional, and often physical response, to a terrible or tragic experience. While the immediate effects of the event (shock and denial) may be short-lived, the long-term effects may significantly impact a person’s ability to return to their normal level of functioning after a traumatic event occurs. These feelings are a normal response to extremely stressful and negative circumstances, and they can be debilitating when left untreated.

How does trauma affect the brain?

Severe trauma can have lasting effects on the part of the brain that regulates our emotional responses. Trauma can have varying effects, depending on the age or stage of development of a person. Your body’s sensory processing ability comes from your brain. The memory of a traumatic experience can be triggered by any of the five senses – taste, touch, sound, sight, and smell. As a result, when you least expect it, a noise, scent, or image can trigger overwhelming feelings of fear and can cause someone to re-live a traumatic event.

How does trauma affect the body?

The negative effects of trauma are not limited to the brain. There are many physical signs of trauma, including a racing heartbeat, deep or heavy breathing, restlessness, lethargy, anxiety or panic attacks, headache, sleeplessness, and fatigue. Trauma can also impact your emotions by stirring up feelings of anger, fear, sadness, flashbacks, or an inability to regulate one’s emotions.

Emily Gilliam

Emily was the first therapist I had ever gone to after thinking for a long time it would be good for me. I was...Read more

stuck in a rut and repeating patterns and using coping skills that were no longer helpful to me. She helped me work through many of my personal issues, some which had been stewing since childhood. She always knew when to push and when to back off if a certain issue was too sensitive at that time. She is honest yet kind. I was sad to see her move out of Chicago but I will forever be grateful for the tools she helped me to develop for dealing with the sh**show that life can be sometimes. She helped me get back into alignment with who I really am as a person. I would highly recommend her for anyone who is struggling or even just looking for a little more balance in their lives.

dn't see it myself. She helped me with my grief after losing my father. She helped me overcome my addictions with drugs and alcohol. She taught me to be kind to myself and that everyday is not gonna be an amazing day and that's okay. She helped me accept that I don't have to know the outcomes to big life changes that it's best to go with the flow, wear life like a loose garment. Emily is such and amazing counselor and I am forever grateful for everything she helped me see. Emily cares tremendously and I know deep in my heart she is gonna continue being the sunshine in many more client lives. Emily has made a huge impact on my life and I don't think I will ever find a counselor as down to earth as she is. Chicago misses you already!!! :) :) :)

ion. I thought I was handling it well until one day had a massive panic attack. I did my research and reached out to her immediately. She met with me the next day and helped my put a plan into place for recovery. The first time I met her, I knew I could trust her and she tailored my therapy and sessions to what I needed at the time and at each stage of progress. There were times I digressed and she helped me get back on track and we celebrated my small wins and progress together. I would recommend her to any friend or family member. I know personally, taking the first step to get help is an important one. I can confidently say she was a great first step for me and I know she's fantastic at helping others too.
