FIND YOURSELF.

Online Trauma Therapist for High Achievers in California

We’re human. We’re complex. And so is trauma and the knotting effects on the everyday lives of its survivors. Sometimes, one can hear of trauma and immediately think of abuses, assaults, horrific accidents and tragedies. Meanwhile, it’s common to overlook the traumas that aren’t easily visible on the outside. Especially, on those who are high achieving.

You can find your way forward.

Relational traumas matter, too.

Have you been looking for a “trauma recovery therapist near me?”

It’s sometimes hard to even recognize what you might not have considered to be trauma. After all, it seemed so “normal” while in it, but normal doesn’t always mean healthy. Our bodies know this, regardless of how the trauma is labeled.

Signs of Relational Trauma

N

A childhood history of being expected to be independent

Now, as an adult, you have trouble learning how to rely on others in relationship. You have difficulty asking for what you want or need for fear of it being “too much” or a burden on others. Sometimes, there’s even confusion on what your needs and wants are.
N

You’re a people pleaser

pleasing others feels safer than risking rejection or disconnection. So, you carry the burden of often being the “Reliable One” even when your body wants to say, “no.”
N

YOu want a relationship but fear intimacy

Romantic relationships cause things to surface in you that make you hold on too tightly out of insecurities, or run out of fear of getting hurt. At times, you self-sabotage because your fear of being happy is just as high as your fear of failure.
N

you had to be the adult to your parents

You made space for their overwhelming emotions and behaviors, which meant tucking away yours. And they seemed to like it that way. Now, it feels safer to go “unseen” in social spaces, even when there’s a part of you that longs to be seen.

Signs of Complex Trauma

• You feel like your body has betrayed you, and it can no longer be trusted.

• Unwanted intrusive thoughts show up. You feel like you’re functioning but aren’t really present. These thoughts overstay their welcome and bring friends called flashbacks, body sensations, and anxiety.

• When it feels like the painful past is happening in real-time. Your emotions and your body keep reminding you of what you try so hard to forget. I think of it as the body’s plea for healing.

BOTH COMPLEX AND RELATIONAL TRAUMAS CAUSE PAIN AND IMPRINT ON OUR MEMORIES. SO, MAKING THE MENTAL DECISION TO “PUT THE PAST BEHIND” YOU IS NOT ENOUGH TO UNHOOK YOURSELF FROM THE IMPACT OF TRAUMA.
