Trauma Therapy in St. Louis, MO
Find meaning and joy in life again.
Life’s challenges can feel dark, heavy, or even impossible to deal with. Most people who start trauma therapy feel lost in life on some level, unsure of how to find their way. Perhaps you can relate. Maybe your days start to blur together or you know you’d be happier if you made changes but it feels safer and more comfortable to stay the same.
Stuck and overwhelmed, you may feel like life is out of control.
Do you feel numb, panicky, or ashamed?
Do any of the following resonate with you?
- You feel lonely, even when you are with others.
- You are in a constant state of fear and it rules your life.
- You feel dread, worry, and a pounding heart.
- You blame yourself for the events that caused your PTSD symptoms.
If these sound true to you, we want you to know that you’re not “crazy.” And even though you might feel alone in your struggle, what you are going through is common and it’s okay to ask for help. Many people find it difficult to cope with overwhelming feelings and stress after experiencing trauma.
Even if you don’t believe you deserve care, you do. You deserve to take care of yourself.
“Trauma is a fact of life. It does not, however, have to be a life sentance.”— Peter Levine

How trauma therapy works
At Emovere, we do trauma therapy in St. Louis, MO a little differently. We value an embodied approach to care because we understand that trauma lives in the body. We also understand that just talking about your experience isn’t enough. Trauma is something that moves us and sometimes needs more than words to be expressed.
Our therapy for trauma and PTSD consists of one-on-one sessions that help you work through your PTSD symptoms. In addition to listening, your therapist may share thoughts when it’s helpful, encourage you to slow down and notice body sensations, move, play, or engage in art and sand tray.
