Trauma and Abuse Counseling

At Mustard Seed Tree, we understand that trauma and abuse leave deep scars, often manifesting in a multitude of distressing ways. Survivors frequently relive their experiences through flashbacks, nightmares, and persistent thoughts, making each day a battle against the echoes of their past. This relentless inner turmoil can leave you feeling on edge, easily frightened, irritable, or even enraged, disrupting your ability to function and perform daily tasks. Feelings of guilt, shame, and worthlessness can further entangle you, affecting your relationships and responsibilities, such as parenting.

Trauma doesn’t just affect your emotions; it also impacts your cognitive functions, hindering your ability to plan, make decisions, and concentrate. Trust issues may arise, especially for victims of crime, shattering your sense of safety and making the world feel unpredictable and threatening. For those with faith, trauma can lead to a profound “faith crisis,” challenging your beliefs and the very meaning of life. Losing control over your inner and outer world can erode your sense of self, leaving you feeling isolated and misunderstood.

Family and friends often struggle to know how to support you. Some withdraw out of fear or awkwardness, leaving you feeling isolated when you need support the most. Others may inadvertently disempower you with comments suggesting that recovery will take forever, making you question whether things will ever be “normal” again.
