Have You Been Suffering From Trauma Symptoms For As Long As You Can Remember?
Over the past 10 years, I’ve worked with hundreds of trauma survivors, and a question that I’ve been constantly asked is, “Why should I believe that I can get better?”
When I see clients in my psychotherapy practice who struggle with chronic illness, I’ve found there is one common mistake that they make when thinking about their situation: they tend to compare themselves to other people. Although it is a natural human tendency to compare oneself to others, this can create a great deal of unnecessary pain and suffering.
One of the problems I see play out in my office over and over again is when couples get into an argument and they just can’t seem to make headway. I talked about this in my last couples therapy blog and today, I want to go into more depth about this problem.

A large number of people suffering from chronic illness are also chronic pain sufferers. A question that I’ve constantly been asked is, “How do I cope with chronic pain?”
Over the past ten years, I’ve worked with thousands of clients suffering from trauma and a question that I’ve been constantly asked is, “I’ve been to trauma therapy before, but somehow my symptoms keep coming back. How do I get complete resolution?”
