Trauma comes from a Greek word meaning “a wound” or “a hurt”. Originally, it meant a physical wound; however, today we use the word to identify physical or emotional wounds. In counseling, we refer to trauma as an emotional response resulting from a stressful and emotionally disturbing event or experience such as abuse, separation from or the death of a loved one, witnessing violence, natural disasters, or accidents to name a few. Symptoms of trauma can be physical and emotional. If these symptoms continue instead of fading, then a diagnosis of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) might be appropriate. Everyone deserves to live a life where they feel safe and are able to experience enjoyment without fear. So, if you are facing issues connected to distressing events or circumstances, please know that help is as near as a phone call away.
