Individual Counseling For Trauma

Helping Adults with histories of Trauma like you create healthier beliefs - that are REAL.

If you are struggling with guilt, shame, and feelings of worthlessness, I understand how difficult that can be.

You may believe that you will always be stuck feeling that you are not supposed to have relationships with people that you can trust or maybe even that you are ashamed of yourself for the bad things that have happened in your life.

These beliefs have been your survival system to keep you from more harm - but in keeping you from more harm, your survival system may also be keeping you from experiencing joy. We can work together on helping you learn how to work on your thoughts, feelings (and even body reactions) so that you can have more out of life.

Here Are Some Specific Challenges That I Can Help You With

As someone with a history of Trauma challenged with guilt, shame, and feelings of worthlessness you may be feeling:

  • unworthy of a better life.
  • that you should have done something more to stop a situation (or person) from harming you or someone else.
  • that you can't talk about bad things because it's not safe to do so.
  • that you will always fail, so why bother trying to change or trying something new to work on your problems.
  • that things are out of your control and you can't protect yourself from future negative situations.

Even if you are feeling overwhelmed with feelings like these, Individual Therapy can help.

As Your therapist, I Can Help You Create healthier beliefs - that are REAL.

I'm Laura Taylor and I'm a therapist who is uniquely qualified to help you Create healthier beliefs - that are REAL (and not just wishes).

I have extensive training (and continue to have more) on issues related to trauma. According to research, one of the best therapies to treat trauma is called EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). Currently, I am working on my certification in EMDR, so this means that I have already had many hours of experience using EMDR, ongoing supervision from another therapist (EMDR Consultant) and even more training. EMDR has been very exciting for me to use because everyday I get to see how much it makes a difference for people. So many times I hear people say, "before EMDR I may have known what the healthy thing to think or do was, but I could never feel it. I felt like I was 'faking it, to make it' and now, this feels like real." 

Aside from training in treating trauma, I am also very patient. I don't push people to open up or force them to work on something that they are not ready to do. I hear from most of my clients that they feel pretty comfortable with me, but this is also an individual thing. What works for one person, may not work for someone else. I want you to have a good connection with me and sometimes that can take a little time. Just come as you are and we will work out the rest.
