In Jennifer’s Words
As a therapist, I have found that coming to therapy and discussing difficulties in your life is hard, to say the least. There may be uncomfortable events that need to be visited, traumatic situations that induce fear just entertaining the idea of repeating them out loud, or concerns of re-experiencing the trauma.
I employ different techniques to allow this process to be manageable as well as productive. I believe each person and each situation is different and requires different avenues to process through life’s challenges without being re-traumatized. However, if you don’t allow yourself to feel, you don’t allow yourself to heal.
