Common Questions About Trauma Therapy
Q: What is trauma?
A: Trauma is often thought of as large, significant experiences such as an accident, assault, or violent event. However, trauma often takes other, more subtle forms—things that take place over time, like abuse, neglect, or gaslighting & manipulation.
Trauma is, ultimately, any experience or series of experiences that leaves a negative or lasting effect on a person. Whether the experience you had was large and significant or more subtle over time, trauma therapy can help you address the impacts of it and move forward.
Q: How do you support LGBTQ+, kink, or polyamorous folx with trauma?
A: Many folx in these communities experience daily oppression, which is, itself, trauma. When combined with other trauma from their past, those in the LGBTQ+, kink, or polyamorous communities can find it especially difficult to find support. I offer a safe, accepting space where we can discuss the nuances of each of these things, without the need for explanation or justification.
