The Trauma Academy Northwest LLC, LCSW in Salem
Trauma is a highly complex and personal experience. Everyone's experience and definition of trauma is different. Among both professionals and clients, it is often incredibly misunderstood. It affects us across physical, social, emotional, and spiritual bounds. It compromises our ability to process sensory input and registers us incapable of communicating at times. Traumatic experiences can make us feel "small" and incompetent, incapable of managing basic tasks at times, or we may even develop intermittent or chronic pain.
Trauma is our specialty and we know how to help you replace your feelings of overwhelm and impulse with calm at home, school, and work using unique ideas and interventions. With advanced training in the area of how trauma affects the brain, memory, and the senses, we are able to utilize techniques beyond traditional "talk-therapy" such as Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, EMDR and other body oriented techniques. We can bring your emotional, physical, and cognitive parts into harmony.
We can help you understand the following behaviors in the context of your traumatic past: addiction to alcohol, nicotine, drugs, pornography, food, or gambling, trouble focusing/concentrating or difficulty eating, sleeping or remaining hygienic. We can help you understand why you do some things including: repetitive actions or routines, relying on others' beliefs, decisions, or opinions instead of trusting your own, engaging in risky behaviors such as cutting or burning yourself, or having thoughts of or attempting suicide/homicide.
