Elle Harris, Intern, EMDR Therapist
I heard a very simple definition of trauma once:
“Trauma is a response to an event that we weren’t prepared to handle.”
With this perspective, we can begin to understand how a wide range of life’s challenges can impact our mind, behaviors, and relationships. Our unique history and experiences have shaped the way we view the world and how our nervous system responds to it. We can develop patterns that may have helped us at one point, but no longer serve us and need support to adapt. We can give ourselves some grace then to be human, and grace when we act or react in ways that we don’t always understand. There comes a point when we have to take action to change, and I am humbled to be a part of your journey as you pursue the life and wellbeing you desire. Whether you have been on a path of healing for quite some time now or are stepping into what may feel daunting and unfamiliar, I will do my best to create a space that is safe, accepting, and empowering. I know from doing my own work in therapy that it is not always easy, but there is so much freedom found in bringing things to the light and processing through them. I am honored to walk alongside you as you experience the same!
