A Focus on Trauma Therapy

With Kari Wittman Lata, MS, LMFT, LCPC

Trauma resolution therapy helps clear lingering negative emotions and energy from upsetting events in the past that currently influence daily life patterns. While trauma is often considered to be PTSD related to large events such as sexual assault, physical abuse, or surviving an attack or disaster, it can also be “smaller” experiences such as growing up in an alcoholic family, being bullied as a child, car accidents, or the affects of a spouse or partner’s affair or betrayal.

Regardless of the nature of the experiences that impact a person, we often carry the negative effects around with us whether we are aware of it or not. The trauma techniques that Kari uses with clients aim to gently release those negative feelings, effectively “unburdening” clients so they can move forward in life with more confidence, safety, and clarity.
