Therapy Can Help You Feel Better About Your Past Experiences!
Our Champaign Counseling therapists help you heal depression, anxiety and stress due to traumatic events...
Experiencing trauma can make you feel like your world is spinning out of control.
You might feel numb and then switch to anger or sadness over situations that you used to be able to easily handle.
You feel heavy from having to carry around the memories of the traumatic event.
Your life may have lost its meaning.
It’s possible that you’ve had a difficult or traumatic childhood that has led to your depression or anxious feelings. Maybe you’ve always struggled.
On the other hand, you might be someone who experienced a specific traumatic event that sent you spiraling downhill into the dark pit that you find yourself in now.
You’re ready to feel in control of your life again. You want to feel safe and experience calm again.
Some things you might say to yourself:
“I feel on edge all of the time.”
“I can't sleep and have nightmares, or I sleep too much and have trouble getting out of bed.”
“My experience wasn't REAL trauma. It wasn't as big of a deal as a war veteran so what's wrong with me?”
“I feel so alone. No one understands what I’m going through.”
Trauma impacts people in all different ways. Traumatic experiences aren't always extreme events. They can be small things that happen over and over until you find yourself avoiding thoughts about the trauma, going out of your way to prevent re-experiencing it, or you can't stop thinking about what happened.

Our Therapists Are Trained in Research-Based Therapy Methods Known to Help People Overcome Symptoms of Trauma or Post Traumatic Sress Disorder
Some of our therapists utilize one of the most effective evidence-based counseling techniques, called Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR).
EMDR is one of the most widely used approaches to help people overcome and heal from deeply troubling problems such as anxiety, depression, and other symptoms of trauma.
