Sometimes events in our life make us feel smaller, less than, and unlovable. Experiencing continuous criticism, coldness, and discomfort in close relationships creates its own kind of trauma called Relational Trauma.
Relational Trauma often expresses itself in the forms of:
- difficulty creating and maintaining close relationships
- low self-esteem
- not setting healthy boundaries
- intense loneliness
- doubts about our future success in love and work
- expectations of rejection
- risky behaviors
- poor health choices
Essentially, many of the things that bring us down and limit our birthright to experience joy, comfort, and pleasure result from these (usually early) experiences. Working with our skilled clinicians can open up new possibilities for you and your loved ones.
