The fundamental sense of fear and helplessness evoked by childhood trauma stays with a person long into adulthood and can affect every aspect of life. Traumatic experiences have devastating emotional effects and a lasting impact on the nervous system.
At Meridian, we have advanced training in trauma therapy using traditional cognitive-behavioral treatments combined with newer body-focused psychotherapies like Somatic Experiencing and EMDR. Our approach addresses both the emotional and physiological effects of trauma; some of which include:
- Emotional disconnection, shut down, numbness
- Substance Abuse
- Compulsive Behaviors
- Mood Swings
- Self-Destructive Behaviors
- Persistent Relationship Problems
