When most people see the word “trauma” related to mental health, they will either identify with it and want to know more, or they will immediately pass over it thinking that this word doesn’t apply to them. If you are a person in the latter category, I encourage you to continue reading this.
I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Therapist and have been actively practicing for over 30 years. I see a wide range of clients in an outpatient setting with issues relating to depression, anxiety or both. What I have realized is that 98% of all my clients over the decades had trauma. Its prevalence became so striking to me over the years that I obtained extra training in trauma and now it is one of my specialty areas.
