Recovering From Depression & Anxiety Trauma

Do you experience panic attacks, moments of severe anxiety, or feel unsafe in new environments?
Do you have trouble trusting others? Are you a survivor of violence or sexual abuse? Do you have reoccurring nightmares or replay a frightening event repeatedly in your head?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, you may be affected by trauma. Trauma is the mark that is left on us after we encounter a particularly stressful life event, but we don’t have to remain branded by trauma forever.

  • Understanding how your trauma affects those around you
  • Forming a sturdy network of support
  • Learning how to develop trust and feel safe
  • Moving on and finding fulfillment in life again
