Traumatic Event Therapist

Laurie Grengs is a licensed psychologist whose practice is based in Coon Rapids, MN. For well over thirty years, she has offered help to people who have experienced many different kinds of traumatic events in their lives. While the specific components and characteristics of traumas can vary widely, the human response tends to be somewhat predictable to those traumas. And when you give your trust to Laurie Grengs, the trauma becomes much more treatable.

It is critically important to address psychological and emotional traumas. In fact, it is every bit as important as addressing a broken bone or injuries sustained after a car accident. All are traumas, they are simply traumas that occur to different systems of your body. Working through physical or emotional trauma means different things to different people and each person’s response to a trauma is unique. For too many of us, working through emotional trauma simply means “toughing it out.” This is a shame, really, because toughing out after a psychological trauma is extremely difficult and may bleed into many aspects of your life. It is often easier to splint a broken bone on our own or bind a cut-open finger than it is to heal from most instances of emotional trauma.

Recovering Emotionally After a Trauma

Laurie Grengs is a highly qualified and empathic licensed therapist who has dedicated her career to helping individuals who are healing from all types of traumatic events, including car accidents, the death of a loved one, violent crimes, domestic violence, sexual abuse, child abuse or neglect, natural disasters or PTSD after war. She works to address the unique and specific needs of each and every one of her clients. Her goal is to help you establish a foundation for individual growth, and help you recover from your trauma so that you can lead a happier and healthier life, free of the emotional, physical, and psychological turmoil that can accompany a traumatic event.

Therapy Following a Traumatic Event

Laurie Grengs is known for her warmth, kindness, professional acumen, and for her ability to help her clients identify solutions that work best for them. You are the priority when you work with her. She will help you understand and overcome limitations that you may be placing on yourself while trying to work through the trauma that has been affecting your life. Such things can manifest as defense mechanisms that help us get through difficult times. But over time, they can become permanent behaviors that we simply get used to.Once we start thinking about ourselves in a certain way, it can be very difficult to change the way we think. This happens not for many because we recognize at some level that it’s a strategy that has worked.

Over time, however we can forget about better ways of thinking, and the continued presence of trauma can serve to strengthen the presence of those less effective ways of thinking. Laurie Grengs can help you create new strategies and new habits that are more effective and which are capable of helping you heal from the trauma that started it all.
