Trauma Therapy in Bethesda, MD

Also Serving Fairfax, VA

When people think of trauma, they often focus on war, natural disasters and car accidents. Now we know that adults who had difficult and painful childhoods also may experience trauma and PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). Adults with childhood trauma are often unaware that is the source of their current personal and professional problems.

If you are struggling with depressionanxiety, anger, relationship issues, self-esteem, self-assertion, or lack meaning and direction for your life, you may be suffering from the lingering effects of childhood trauma. During your growing years, you may have suffered from physical, sexual, emotional or psychological abuse. You may have had an alcoholic, absent, mentally ill or violent parent. Or you may have had a life-threatening illness or major surgery.

Adults with these childhood histories often suffer from Complex PTSD. You may find the childhood wounding is repeating. For example, now you have an alcoholic or abusive spouse or boss. Or you act at times like your abusive parent. You haveanger and other affect regulation issues.  You struggle with relationships. Your sense of self and systems of meaning are askew. You remain conflicted about the perpetrator, especially if it was a family member.
