Few losses can compare to the grief which comes from victimization. Feelings of denial, anger, bargaining, and depression are common emotions most victims experience. Whether the trauma was personal, crime-related, or in the context of a greater disaster or tragedy, Lake Area Counseling can provide you the tools to effectively cope with the far-reaching ramifications of a distressing experience and come to eventual acceptance and peace.
Trauma is an emotional response to a terrible event like an accident, rape or natural disaster. Immediately after the event, shock and denial are typical. Longer term reactions include unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, strained relationships and even physical symptoms like headaches or nausea.
There is hope after tragedy. That hope can start today.
