What Does Trauma Recovery Mean to You?

Dan

“The signature characteristic of trauma is that it results from any experience that is too much, too soon, or too fast for the nervous system to digest. We then lack the ability to integrate the event into our experience of living, which results in traumatic residue being “stuck” in the body. This “stuck” energy, wanting to be resolved, causes tension in our mind and body as it seeks our attention, often creating a vicious negative feedback loop. In other words, and to paraphrase Dr. Gabor Mate’, trauma is not what happens to you, it’s what happens inside of you as a result.

While trauma is usually experienced as unpleasant, it’s trying to serve us in some way, often as a form of protection. Trauma recovery means restoring inner harmony and a fundamental sense of safety and well-being. Recovery from trauma comes with it a sense of liberationand reconnecting to the deepest, most precious parts of ourselves. We develop the self-assurance to fully engage with life again, to feel alive.”

“Trauma Recovery is a way to reclaim your life and take it back from those that have harmed you in the past. We may not be able to change the past but we can transform your present and future. Everyone deserves to be set free from the negative beliefs about ourselves and traumatic memories that sometimes follow us with trauma. With recovery you can break the chains of trauma and be set free. ” –Jessie

Trauma Recovery is an inner journey in which residues of the past are resolved so that we can be fully present in our lives – now. By integrating the past, we create an opportunityto experience a future that is free of unnecessary suffering. It is a path of subtraction, in which we shed the things that are ultimately not true for us. In the absence of these things, we naturally remember our inherent worth, dignity and wholeness. In my opinion, the first step of this journey is to recognize that there is something in each of us that has survived every experience – no matter how difficult. It’s from this place that the work of recovery is possible, and it’s ultimately this place into which the journey ends. In this way, trauma recovery is not linear but circular because the beginning and the end are actually one. –Evan

Joanne

“Providing Trauma Sensitive Therapy allows me to offer a different approach with what has happened in life. Acknowledging, accepting and honoring what WAS in the past gives permission to move forward and create a new identity and not that of trauma. To me, recovering from trauma means being able to tell one’s story – their truth. There is no need to tell secrets anymore, Trauma is something that happens, Being able to have self-compassion, acceptance and love by getting in touch with the most vulnerable parts. The path to healing is created by learning and practicing mindfulness, meditation, mind-body connection, self-compassion and gratitude.” – Joanne

Kelsee

“To me, trauma recovery means the healing of pain and suffering that paves a path for presence and connection. It is the allowance for more presence in your day to day life, your relationships, and your future.” – Kelsee

My passion is to provide validation to those wounds and empower folks to feel they have safety and choice in doing something different. I believe that people can change and we can all change habits and patterns together.” –Kristen

Shayla

“Trauma recovery is integrating experiences into our lives, so they are a previous chapter, and not a current page or theme that we are continually stuck on. Those experiences are always still part of our story, but through recovery, they don’t have to shape how we show up in the world today. Trauma recovery allows us to choose how to move forward, which can allow us to connect more deeply with ourselves and others. Therapy is one way of trauma recovery, which allows a trained guide to walk with you and help you integrate pieces of your past and provide you support through this process. ” –Shayla

Nikki

“Trauma recovery is the act of honoring what happened in the past, recognizing learned behaviors-which were very helpful/needed at the time- and learning new behaviors that are helpful for today. It is the ability to grieve your past, recognize that it is not your past and giving yourself permission to move forward and learn new skills. It can be slow and arduous work, as well as non-linear; and it is worth walking through to hae hope and a future.” – Nikki

Michelle

“It’s important to honor that healing from trauma is a deeply personal and unique journey for each of us. Ultimately though, it is often about reclaiming our sense of wholeness. When we do this, we can navigate life with greater ease, authenticity, vitality and connection.” -Michele
