How Do I Know If I Need Trauma Counseling? 

If you’ve been a victim of a traumatic event such as rape, car accident, robbery, terror attack, terror, childhood neglect, divorce, terminal illness, losing a loved one, it is imperative that you understand the symptoms of trauma because you will be able to determine whether you need to seek help.

After a traumatic event, shock and denial are imminent. These reactions may go away, but you may experience long-term reactions such as:

  • Flashbacks
  • Hopelessness
  • Anger
  • Feelings of isolation
  • Consistent feelings of despair and sadness
  • Extreme guilt,
  • Avoiding situations associated with the trauma
  • Hyperarousal
  • Physical symptoms such as heart palpitations, cold sweating, hyper startle response
  • Difficulties in concentrating
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Sexual dysfunctionality
  • Loss of appetite
  • Feelings of isolation
  • Self-destructive behavior including drug and alcohol addiction, and careless driving

These symptoms vary from person to person. In addition, they may manifest one month after the event, or several years after the tragedy. If you have these symptoms and they are affecting your work, relationships, and day-to-day functioning, it is important that you seek psychological support and trauma counseling. Talking to a professional therapist at Thriveworks can help you get your life back on track.

Psychotherapist Kat Robey is simply the best!

★★★★★
Psychotherapist Kat Robey is simply the best! I’ve had the privilege of working with Kat as a service volunteer at a the Southeastern School for Behavioral Health conference annually since 2014. She has great energy & tremendous networking skills. Everyone at the event knows Kat, moreover, trusts that she has the capability & experience to proactively resolve any adversities before they even arise - given her tenure as a volunteer support staff member prior to becoming the oversight team lead, Kat’s unique blend personality & professionalism is exemplary for that particular role. I highly commend Kat Robey in her new business venture as she continues along in the helping field. I also know that no matter how, “busy,” life becomes, she’s the kind of human being who will create the time necessary to lend an ear & some careful guidance. Much love & respect your way, Kat Robey! Kudos & best wishes on this new venture... Namaste

The Kat I Know

★★★★★
I have been blessed to be Kat's neighbor for the past 4 years. We don't get to pick our neighbors, but if we did, I would pick Kat. In these years I have come to know her as a friend and not just a neighbor. It isn't often that people come in to your life whose light fills you up. Kat is one of the most loving, caring, and compassionate people I have ever known. She takes a genuine and deep interest in everyone she meets. When you are with her, you feel like there isn't anyone else in the room. I believe that anyone who works with Kat will come to know her like I have and that she will provide you with the guidance and tools you need.
