Trauma Therapy- Rock Hill, SC – Counselors and Therapists in York County
No one deserves to go through a trauma. The emotional, mental, and physical scars trauma leaves can stretch way past the traumatic event. It can be a brutal and exhausting experience that is in no way your fault. There is hope though- we can’t choose what happens to us, but we can choose how we heal.
Trauma creates changes you don’t choose. Healing is about creating change you do choose. -Michelle Rosental

What are some symptoms of trauma?
Our brain is a fantastic organ. It has millions of connections that work together to create the reality that we experience every day. But that detail is also its biggest weakness; just like how good experiences can shape the brain, bad experiences can shape our brain too. High stress and high emotional events can actually rewire our brain and make us start thinking, feeling, and acting differently.
To add to the complexity of a traumatized brain, every person will react to a trauma differently. Whether it’s emotional, physical, sexual abuse, neglect, or long-term trauma, our brain responds differently in every situation.
Thriveworks trauma counselors in Rock Hill understand all these complexities and how it might be affecting your life. Whatever your experience, goals, and fears, we can individualize each session, so it is best suited for you. With trauma, there is no one right way to heal. There are only forward steps, and that is what we will take in a Thriveworks Rock Hill trauma therapy session.
Trauma therapy works because we utilize the brain’s natural healing ability to mold it back into its healthy shape. Trauma shapes the brain into something unhealthy, but we can shape it back.
You are never broken or hopeless or unfixable. There is always a way out, and Thriveworks Trauma Therapists in Rock Hill are here to help you find it. You are worth the time it takes to heal from trauma. You are deserving of a fulfilling, happy, safe life. Our counselors will help you get there by moving at your pace.
If you recognize some of these symptoms in yourself or a loved one, reaching out can help:
- Recurrent, painful dreams
- Emotional numbness
- Jittery/always on edge

Trauma and/or PTSD can have a multitude of symptoms, and not all are listed here. The uniqueness of every trauma case can make it feel isolating. Know that you are never alone. A professional, trained counselor at Rock Hill’s trauma therapy can bridge the gap between your pain and your future by giving you the knowledge and skills you need to take the steps towards healing.
How can we help?
Thriveworks Rock Hill trauma therapy will always practice a client-first mentality. You are the prime source of knowledge on yourself. Our job is to bring in the outside research and practices of the mental health field while providing a safe, nonjudgmental, empathetic space for you to heal.
A few of our techniques that we might use in a trauma counseling session include:
- Education on the symptoms of trauma
- Practicing coping skills for when symptoms do flare up (ex: relaxation exercises, anger-management techniques, guided imagery, and more!)
- Support in managing sleep, exercise, and diet. These are core components of a healthy lifestyle and crucial in the healing process
- Work through any guilt, self-blame, or other negative emotions surrounding traumatic events. What happened to you is not your fault.
- Address lingering fear and anxiety. Leaving painful emotions unaddressed will result in more pain further down the road.
- Address any comorbid struggles such as anxiety or depression.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: you are not at fault for experiencing a trauma. The symptoms you’re experiencing are not your fault, nor is the way you’ve adapted to deal with them. Trauma is not your fault. But healing does lay in your hands, and you can start on that journey today. Your present does not belong to your past.
We’ve away taken the frustration of getting help for trauma. Our offices are safe and private. We offer convenient appointment times – day, evening, and weekends. We accept most major insurance plans, too. And getting an appointment can happen now – in most cases, we can schedule your first appointment in 24-48 hours.
