Most people will experience trauma in their lifetime whether it’s a car accident, abuse or neglect, the sudden death of a loved one, a violent criminal act, exposure to the violence of war, or a natural disaster.

While many people can recover from trauma over time with the love and support of family and friends and bounce back with resiliency, others may discover effects of lasting trauma, which can cause a person to live with deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, or post-traumatic stress far after the event has passed.

In these circumstances, the support, guidance and assistance of a therapist is fundamental to healing from trauma.

Avoidance Symptoms

Been going to Analin for weekly sessions for a couple of month now, and I can truthfully admit that choosing her as my therapist was and still is a beneficial decision for my mental health. Since the first interactions going forward it has been a rewarding experience.
