One of the worst things we can do to ourselves is ignore our own pain. When we’re hurting, the only way to move forward is to find a way to move beyond the pain. How is this possible? At The International Center for the Attainment of Love and Joy, Laurie Grengs works to confront traumatic events through counseling. As a traumatic event therapist, Laurie Grengs has worked with patients suffering in many unique ways. No two people are the same, and no two events will affect a person the same way. We all have different experiences, experience things differently, feel pain differently, cope differently, and heal differently. Laurie Grengs can ensure you find a path to healing after a traumatic event by understanding and confronting your pain.
Individual Adult, Adolescent and Children’s Traumatic Event Therapist
Traumatic event therapy is not something reserved for war heroes or even adults. Traumatic events come in many forms and are experienced by many people from all walks of life. That’s why Laurie Grengs offers adult, adolescent and children’s traumatic event therapy, ensuring everyone gets the help they need. Each of these age groups will experience traumatic events differently, and they will likely experience different types of traumatic events. Laurie Grengs has years – decades, even – of experience working with patients of all ages suffering from traumatic events. She can help make sure you, your spouse, child, friend or otherwise feels safe, which is imperative for healing.
Common Traumatic Event Experiences
It’s true that everyone has different experiences and that no two traumatic events are exactly alike. Each patient’s treatment reflects this. However, there are some common traumatic events that Laurie Grengs regularly works with patients to confront. It may be helpful for you to see what events others like you have experienced.
• Car accidents
• Death of a loved one
• Violent crimes
• Domestic violence
• Sexual abuse
• Child abuse or neglect
• Violent acts of war
• Natural disasters
If you’ve suffered through any of these traumatic events or otherwise, know you’re not alone, and you can be helped.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder – PTSD Therapist
One of the most common forms of stress related to a traumatic event is posttraumatic stress disorder, or PTSD. While PTSD is often associated with veterans, it does not only affect those who have seen war. PTSD is simply intense stress caused by a traumatic event that causes negative emotional, psychological and physical side effects. This can manifest in flashbacks to the event, psychological unrest, negative behaviors like anger and paranoia, and more.
