Trauma is perceived differently by all and multiple traumas can make it more difficult to effectively manage the the post trauma distress and disconnection.  Therapy can help you learn to effectively manage and reduce symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing.

Ineffective Coping Strategies

As humans, we do not like pain and its a built in primitive survival mechanism to avoid pain, seek pleasure and survive.  As such, this primitive brain continues to promote avoidance of painful emotions and engage in avoidance behaviors such as use of substances, food and others behaviors to manage or avoid daily stresses.  Despite their immediate effectiveness, over the long term they often become debilitating and reinforce avoidance and maintain distress.   In therapy you can work  towards  realistically and effectively facing your distress, managing your responses to your emotional voice, as well as other factors that often cause barriers in you being the person you want to be and living the life you want to live.
