Current Events Unearthing Old Wounds

With #metoo in the news and Brett Kavanaugh's recent appointment to the Supreme Court, it has been hard to avoid the topic of sexual assault lately. Although survivors of sexual trauma often try to protect themselves from being exposed to triggering topics, in a news cycle of sexual assault and rape being talked about everywhere you turn, old trauma can come bubbling to the surface. This can look like symptoms such as an increase in anxiety, difficulty sleeping, sensory flashbacks, or increased hypervigilance, to name a few.

When you're working through trauma, it makes all the difference to have an experienced therapist on your side. At Connections Counseling, you can find clinicians who have years of experience with this specialized topic. Counselors at Connections can offer therapeutic techniques that can support clients in working through trauma, such as EMDR, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Hakomi, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness, and more. Reach out today to connect with a therapist who can help you move through the healing process!
