Exploring Trauma

Don’t be defined by your trauma. It’s time to take control and rewrite your story! Trauma therapy in Pittsburgh at WPA Counseling is a place where you will be heard and understood. Everyone’s experience with trauma is different so our approach with each client is also different and is designed to address the whole you.

We believe it is important for clients to gain knowledge about trauma and its impact on them in order to free them from feelings of guilt and shame as well as the misconception that one can “just get over it.” Your counselor will help you take back control of your life, dispute the false messages that came from the trauma, and embrace the truth about yourself.
