You want to start counseling to overcome past trauma, but that’s not as easy as it sounds. Perhaps you live in Houston or Dallas Texas and don’t want to drive 45 minutes for your session. Or maybe you live in McAllen or Poteet and there are fewer mental health resources. Maybe you know you feel comfortable and safe to begin counseling from the comfort of your own home and couch.

Common Trauma Symptoms
In all honesty, everyone who starts therapy for trauma experiences a range of trauma/PTSD symptoms. Here are some of the common reasons someone may start therapy for trauma with one of our online therapists:
- Needing to feel on guard and prepare for danger.
- Easily being startled or frightened.
- Engaging in self-destructive behavior, such as drinking too much or driving too fast.
- Trouble sleeping.
- Trouble concentrating.
- Irritability, angry outbursts, or aggressive behavior.
- Experiencing overwhelming guilt or shame.
Types of Trauma we work with
In addition, our online therapists understand that trauma can come in many shapes and sizes and we take our time to learn the impact it has had on your life. The types of trauma we have experience in treating are:
- Early childhood trauma.
- Accidents (natural disasters, car crashes, physical injuries, etc.)
- Community violence.
- Medical Trauma.
- Traumatic Grief.
- Military Combat.
- Religious trauma.
- Attachment Trauma.
- Past domestic violence (due to our services being online and for the safety of our clients, we do not work with clients who are currently experiencing domestic violence. Please contact our office for a referral.)
- Previous family violence.
- Past sexual abuse.
- If you have experienced a traumatic event that is not on this list, please give us a call and we can let you know if we have a therapist who can work with you or can give you a referral.
Modern Wellness Counseling Approach to Treating Trauma
Moreover, our online counselors use a variety of therapy interventions to help match your needs and this will be determined after your first session. Regardless of the therapy intervention, your counselor finds to fit best, you will learn how to identify triggers, learn effective coping strategies, learn how to implement different coping strategies, learn how to change behavioral and cognitive responses that seem to keep you stuck, and learn how to maintain the changes you are experiencing. Some of our common therapy interventions used are Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Client-Focused Therapy, and Narrative Therapy.
Get Matched With The Perfect Therapist
Additionally, please note that not all of our counselors are trained in each of these therapy modalities, so when scheduling your appointment, our intake coordinator can ensure you get scheduled with the right counselor based on your goals.
As a result, our counselors are collaborative in nature with clients, meaning that we expect our clients to share with us what is working and what is not working outside of our counseling sessions. In fact, this type of feedback will ensure that you are closer to reaching your therapeutic goals.
