Sheila Hunter, LPC, LMHC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Salem
We go through a lot of stuff in our lives. Trauma from childhood (poverty, abuse, death, illness) can cause illnesses later in life (depression, panic, fibromyalgia, alcohol use, drug use). Recent traumas (auto accidents, death, divorce, combat) can cause discomfort through sleeplessness, depression, panic, nightmares, flashbacks, and so on. Trauma affects us all the way down at the cellular level, so it is necessary to treat the whole person, not just the mind. Counseling and body work help to remove trauma from cells, muscles, and memories so healing can take place.
Sometimes we just need help to sort something out. We all have transitions at various times: moving, death, divorce, job/career change, births, health issues especially as we age, and so on. Having someone navigate with us through those times helps with the overwhelm and helps us bounce back.
Often beneath it all is spirituality: religion, personal philosophy, or something else. Sometimes we need to talk to someone who 'thinks outside the box' of orthodox practices. In summary, whatever issues you have, there's help. Let's see if we can work together to help you.
