Resources for Life

People often underestimate or minimize the effects of trauma.  It impacts multiple areas of life to include thoughts, emotions, spirituality, physical health, relationships, finances and job performance.   The secondary consequences of trauma are significant and wear down your ability to deal with stress over time.  It can leave you feeling trapped, hopeless, anxious or depressed.  You may think that you are too good, professional or tough to experience what you are going through, but the reality is it has nothing to do with that.  It is a lie that prevents recovery and healing.   If you are encountering any of the following signs know that there are people who care and resources that matter.
