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.

Trauma is the result of a wide variety of circumstances where one may feel overwhelmed and helpless: experiences that exceed your capacity to cope. 

Maybe you were abused as a child, survived a serious illness or injury, or have experienced a significant betrayal. Maybe you witnessed a shooting or a terrible accident at some point in your life. Trauma can be caused by near-death experiences or watching someone die. Even events like a dental procedure, a sudden fall, or being bullied can lead to trauma reactions.

The good news is that you are not “damaged goods.” You didn’t create this situation. And there is no reason to feel ashamed. Whatever the source of your trauma, it’s not your fault. 

We can help you recover from trauma, restore your trust and sense of safety, and reconnect with your loved ones, all from the comfort of your own home.

Our team of Christian therapists help individuals recover from devastating trauma and restore their sense of trust through online trauma counseling.

We help people through many types of trauma

We have the experience, training, and expertise to help you recover from a wide range of trauma:

  • Child abuse (sexual, physical, emotional, or verbal)
  • Illness, injury, or hospitalization (as a child or adult)
  • Near-death encounters (accidents, injuries)
  • Sexual assault or abuse
  • Torture or violence
  • Witnessing a death, accident, or injury
  • Genocide and war (veterans or civilians)
  • Developmental, vicarious, institutional, or generational

Sometimes, trauma happens. We can help if:

  • Your identity has been shaken
  • Your trust has been broken
  • Your sense of safety has been compromised
  • You’re feeling overwhelmed and powerless
  • You’re feeling distant and isolated
  • You’re unable to cope with normal life

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 Impact of Unresolved Trauma

Trauma occurs when you find yourself in threatening circumstances when too much happens too quickly or too soon. And because you cannot process the overwhelming threat, your body records and stores the trauma for later processing. 

People with unresolved trauma will notice themselves being triggered easily (when a small event triggers an oversized reaction), having flashbacks/nightmares, unable to perform some “normal” life tasks, or difficulty participating in “normal” life experiences because they are suddenly overwhelmed.

Trauma may also have a compound effect, meaning that two or three smaller traumatic events can leave a person feeling as paralyzed by fear as someone who only experienced one huge traumatic event.

Trauma therapy helps survivors to safely process and heal from a wide range of trauma.

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 team of hand-picked Christian therapists specialize in helping trauma survivors rebuild, renew, and restore trust through proven trauma therapy techniques, and we have learned how to adapt these effective interventions for video-based counseling.
