What is Trauma?

Trauma develops when an individual experiences an adverse life event that appears overwhelming and hard to move past, including physical trauma (such as abuse or a car accident) and emotional trauma (including toxic relationships or the sudden end of a relationship). Both physical and emotional traumas can lead to a sensation of being trapped in the past, inflicting a psychological wound that feels nearly impossible to process.

Signs and Symptoms of Trauma

Each of us will respond to traumatic experiences in unique ways. However, there are several common symptoms associated with trauma that can significantly disrupt daily life, including:

  • Intrusive memories that persistently resurface
  • Avoidance behavior, where the individual actively avoids anything that reminds them of the trauma
  • Negative changes in thinking and mood, such as an overall pessimistic outlook or inability to experience positive emotions
  • Changes in physical and emotional reactions, like being easily startled or constantly feeling on edge
  • Low self-esteem
  • Difficulties in relationships
  • Jumpiness
  • Trouble making decisions or problem-solving
  • Poor concentration (not to be confused with ADHD) or loss of memory
  • Physical symptoms such as nausea, upset stomach, diarrhea, vomiting, tremors, sweating, chills, dizziness, and chronic pain.

What is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)?

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychiatric disorder that can occur following a deeply traumatic experience or series of traumatic experiences. PTSD is recognized by a persistent emotionally charged cycle of distress and mental discomfort that extends far beyond the traumatic experience(s).

Sings and Symptoms of PTSD

Our Spokane clients with PTSD often relive the emotional and physical experience of trauma long after the event has passed. Recognizing the telltale symptoms of PTSD is the first step toward seeking help. With proper therapy and a supportive environment, you can find relief and regain control of your life. These symptoms include:

  • Intrusive thoughts or flashbacks of the traumatic event

  • Hyper-vigilance, constantly being on high alert

  • Increased heart rate or chest pain

  • Insomnia, resulting from nightmares or fear of nightmares

  • Emotional disturbances such as anxiety, excessive worry, fear, guilt, grief, depression, and irritability

  • Isolation, loneliness, anger

  • Disassociation, feeling numb

  • Engaging in numbing behaviors such as substance use

How We Treat Spokane Clients Suffering from Trauma & PTSD

With Anchor Light Therapy Collective, you and your therapists work in collaboration to create a holistic, customized trauma-focused treatment plan using a variety of treatments designed to support your trauma or PTSD recovery and meet your goals and needs.

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy offers a safe space to work through your traumatic experiences at your own pace. By working one-on-one with a trauma-informed therapist from your home in Spokane, you can begin to understand and process your trauma, learn to manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life.

Marriage Counseling and Couples Therapy

For those in relationships, trauma can create painful layers of struggle and complexity. Marriage counseling and couples therapy provide a supportive environment for you and your partner to understand each other’s experiences of trauma or PTSD and work together toward a healthier relationship dynamic by fostering communication, trust, and mutual support.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a particularly effective therapeutic technique we use to treat Spokane clients suffering from trauma and PTSD. It works by helping your brain process traumatic memories, reducing their emotional intensity, and helping you to view these experiences from a new perspective.

CPT Mindfulness Therapy

Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) combined with mindfulness practices helps you understand and reshape thought patterns that lead to symptoms, reducing the impact of your traumatic experience while experiencing a greater sense of present-moment awareness.

Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is an effective tool that taps into the subconscious mind to help you safely explore your trauma, reframe the experiences, and build positive coping mechanisms.
