Benefits Of Therapy
People who have experienced trauma often need specialized assessment and treatment in order to thrive. Often the effects of molestation are misunderstood or misdiagnosed. Some people have exhibited signs of physical ailments, emotional instability, mental illness, learning disabilities, and more. Some times these diagnosis will begin to heal as a person works through their childhood trauma. Often these are direct effects of the endured trauma. A Quarter Blue works at assessing clients and peeling back the layers to help increase healthy choices and living and POSSIBLY minimizing the physical, emotion, and mental strains connected to the trauma.
While many of us would like to move on and forget about our painful childhood experiences, that is not a reality. Therapy allows us to move from mere survival to victors over our childhood trauma.
