Trying to move forward after a traumatic experience can feel impossible. If you or someone you love has been affected by severe stress or trauma, you may feel alone as you try to process thoughts and emotions surrounding the trauma. Seeking help from a compassionate and licensed therapist can provide clear and practical solutions to help restore your mental health and guide you toward healing.

Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Offers Hope for Recovery

At Kaleidoscope Counseling & Wellness, you will find a unique approach to trauma treatment. We understand every individual has a unique story with different symptoms that need processing to move forward. Trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) offers an evidence-based approach for teens and adults who need help understanding the effects of their unique situation:

  • Insomnia
  • Hyperawareness
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Feelings of guilt or shame
  • Irritability
  • Compulsive or self-destructive behaviors
  • Intrusive memories or flashbacks of the incident
  • Nightmares 

Adolescents or adults who experienced trauma may feel like they are to blame; however, this is not the case. Trauma is more common than most people realize, and the slightest trigger can leave individuals feeling unsafe and as a result impact other areas of their lives.

Don’t Let Trauma Rule Your Life

Child neglect or abuse, grief, and other types of trauma can alter your sense of well-being. TF-CBT helps people understand the details of their unique trauma experiences and provides coping skills to help manage triggers that leave them feeling powerless. This therapy helps shift negative thought patterns, behaviors and moves individuals toward a happier and healthier life.

If you or your teenager has experienced trauma, talking with a therapist can help with the healing process. Michelle Rosenbalm is a certified TF-CBT therapist and is passionate about helping adolescents and adults find a renewed sense of hope for healing. She creates a safe and non-judgmental environment where clients can process their trauma and learn skills to move forward.
