Online Trauma Counseling

Compassionate help to heal from trauma so you can restore a sense of safety, and build healthy attachments in the relationships that matter to you.

How it Works

We have direct, proven approaches to helping you process and resolve trauma. We don't just help you “get past this.” We help you to understand the trauma and its impact, make sense of what happened to you, and restore your life so you can feel safe, secure, and whole again.

Our 4-Step Process Helps You Become Whole Again

  1. Identify the trauma: Safely examine the nature and extent of the trauma you have experienced. You have to know what you need to heal from in order to heal.
  2. Create safety: If necessary, your therapist will help you create safety in your environment and in your important relationships. This sets the stage for the healing work.
  3. Resolve the trauma: Using specialized, proven methodologies your OYF therapist will help you to process and heal from your trauma in manageable, measured steps.
  4. Experience healing and connection: Trauma wires your brain for protection. Doing this work with us helps you rewire it for safe, meaningful connection.

Negative Effects of Trauma

  • Lower relationship satisfaction
  • Higher individual stress symptoms
  • Increased risk of alcohol problems
  • Increased risk of substance/drug use
  • Increased rates of suicide attempts
  • Increased risk of depression and anxiety

The Cost of Unresolved Trauma Is Too Great to Ignore


People with unresolved trauma tend to get triggered easily (when a small event triggers an oversized reaction). This can disrupt one’s ability to perform normal everyday tasks, lead to feelings of overwhelm, and even cause nightmares or flashbacks.

Trauma can also have a compound effect where 2-3 smaller traumas can lead to the same fear and paralysis as one large traumatic event. This process can go on for years make it hard to hold down steady employment, destroying relationships, and draining the joy out of life.

It doesn’t have to be this way. Our proven process and techniques help survivors safely process and heal from a wide range of traumas so they can live their fullest life again.
