When searching for the ‘right’ therapist, it is striking how similar this process can feel to dating for a number of reasons. Just like finding the ideal mate, finding the right therapist strongly influences your mental health and overall sense of well-being.

So we may or may not realize that we’ve experienced trauma. Perhaps you’re still unsure whether the shoe fits. Perhaps you’ll identify yourself in one of the common tell-tale signs or coping mechanisms that seem fairly normal, and even positive!  In my last blog, Am I a Victim of Trauma, we ended by touching on How Does Trauma Show Up and How Do We Cope with It?

Trauma is such a big and scary word. Many of us recall not experiencing serious physical abuse, sexual abuse or having had any “traumatic” incident. So, you might ask yourself, are you a victim of trauma? Trauma is one of the biggest equalizers. It doesn’t discriminate. It doesn’t care who you are or how much Am I a Victim of Trauma?

Or perhaps you’re thinking to yourself, I’m pretty healthy and happy, and I do fairly well in life. Isn’t healing mostly needed by people severely debilitated by trauma? Do I need healing, too? The honest answer is that Do I Need Healing?
