Starting Trauma therapy

What is Trauma therapy?

Trauma therapy is a therapeutic approach that focuses on treating the psychological impact of traumatic events on individuals. Trauma therapy helps people process and heal from their trauma by guiding them through their trauma in a compassionate and supportive way, allowing clients to feel the full scope of what happened to them and eventually move on from the event(s). This process helps people who have experienced trauma find ways to feel safe in their life.

How does Trauma therapy work?

Trauma therapy will often require individuals to walk through their experiences in a controlled and compassionate setting (unless the client has a dissociative disorder) so that they can fully process the event, an activity that will allow them to move on from what happened and feel safe again. Thriveworks Round Rock therapists will also help clients learn healthy coping mechanisms to deal with their symptoms outside of therapy.

Is Trauma therapy conducted in person or online?

Thriveworks trauma counseling in Round Rock, TX is conducted both in person and online through online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Trauma therapy last?

If an individual is working through a single event that occurred during adulthood, they may only need a few months of treatment. However, in instances of childhood trauma or repeated traumatic events, therapy may continue over the course of years. Trauma therapy usually ends when the client believes they have met their therapeutic goals, however long that takes to occur. Thriveworks therapists in Round Rock, TX will continue to provide care for as long as necessary to help clients meet their therapeutic needs.

Need more help deciding?

Trauma, specifically a traumatic event, is the central cause of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which means trauma and PTSD can present similarly symptomatically. PTSD can develop after experiencing an extremely frightening or stressful event, such as an accident or an attack. Trauma is more of an umbrella for one or more events, either separate or repetitive, that were distressing or frightening and have had lasting effects on the victim. 

Both trauma and PTSD require specialized treatment from trauma therapists and PTSD therapists. Using modalities like eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), therapists can help people process their trauma and find ways to feel safe again in their daily lives.

Do I Need Trauma Therapy? Is Trauma Therapy Right for Me? How to Tell if I Need PTSD Therapy

Trauma manifests in everyone differently, so there isn’t a specific “way” for trauma to affect someone. However, there are common symptoms that can start affecting your life and how you live it, signaling that it may be time to seek help. Some examples include: 

  • Feeling emotionally empty or disconnected
  • Severe anxiety, fear, and/or depression
  • Having to avoid situations or circumstances that remind you of traumatic events
  • Struggling to form and/or maintain close relationships
  • Using substances to dull painful emotions
  • Experiencing flashbacks or frequent nightmares
  • Struggling to function in your daily life, such as at work or school

Working through trauma and PTSD can be mentally and emotionally taxing. It can be hard to let such painful memories and experiences resurface, but with the help of a mental health professional that specializes in trauma or PTSD, you can start the work of healing yourself in a safe space.

How Does Trauma Therapy Work?

Trauma-focused therapy works by attempting to improve one’s coping strategies for responding to symptoms of their trauma, such as flashbacks, and work through past traumatic events in order to process their effects and help one move on from the event. The overall goal is to help anyone suffering from trauma feel safe when moving through daily life and reduce the amount that their trauma disrupts their daily functioning.

Examples of coping strategies someone would develop in trauma therapy include anxiety management and relaxation strategies. 

Does PTSD Therapy Work?

Whether treatment involves medication alongside therapy or not, PTSD therapy has proven effective in helping people recover from all types of PTSD. However, healing from such a traumatic event will always take time; healing works on no one’s timeline, which makes it a long-term, nonlinear process. 

Each technique and approach will work differently for everyone, so if one doesn’t seem to be effective, it’s alright to ask your therapist about other viable options.

Advantages to Online Trauma Therapy

Online therapy allows you to have increased flexibility and accessibility with your sessions. Since there’s no need to come to an office, you save time commuting, and you can have your session in a familiar environment, such as your home.

Online therapy also cuts down on wait times, making it even easier to see your provider.

I was skeptical at first about having my teenage son see a therapist via online care because of his reluctance to attend therapy, his history, and his trauma. But Madison Vencill has been absolutely AMAZING! I cannot express how well my son has done with therapy with Madison. She was super patient with him and let him open up at his own pace. She truly cares about her patients and always has my son’s best interest at heart. She is always quick to alert me to any concerns while at the same time not betraying my son’s confidence. She responds to emails typically within a couple of hours. She is just an all around amazing therapist!! Now whenever my son is upset or stressed he always says he will “talk to Madison” about it! She is hands down AMAZING and has done wonders for my teenage son. Thank you Madison for helping my son!

I have worked with Mary for over a year now. To say she is phenomenal is an understatement. She has helped me grow so much as an individual and has provided me with endless resources along the way. She is easy to talk to and genuinely cares for you as a person. I would not be who I am today had it not been for Mary. I look forward in continuing my therapy journey with Mary in all my years to come.

Aimee Corona is incredibly skilled, compassionate, encouraging, and knows when to exercise "tough love" to help the client become more confident and guide them through their recovery. She has a very whole person approach and works to get to know the client without judgment. Her goal in our family and individual treatment has been to help us heal, grow, and become more confident independently. She has always held our best interest at heart and is incredibly professional. I highly recommend Ms. Corona.
