Trauma: 5 Common Misconceptions of Grief and Loss

Do you feel you have experienced trauma in your life?

Were you able to get through it and move on to be strong and resilient?

In today’s society, it can feel like everyone is using the word “trauma.” It’s like the “new fad” to say that one has experienced trauma. But trauma is a physiological, psychological, emotional/psychological, and neuro-biological process that takes a toll on your entire person. It can be experienced in many ways and it isn’t something you can easily get over.

Trauma is a powerful word.

Trauma is ANY experience that happened to you (and negatively impacted you) at a time you were unable to cope with it. Some people pursue counseling but still struggle with opening up, doing the hard work, and experiencing post-traumatic growth.

In this video, I will focus on the 5 misconceptions of experiencing a traumatic event and the resulting stages you are likely to go through all throughout your life and at different times/stages.

The stages of grief are:

1. Denial

2. Anger



5. Acceptance

As always, I wish you well

CORONA VIRUS1050 Lincoln Way, Ste 1 - Pittsburgh PA

Trying to understand all of the chaos associated with the #coronavirus can feel very overwhelming.

I want to let ALL of my clients/patients who come to Anchored Child & Family Counseling or who see me for consultations know that I am taking the necessary steps to ensure that all of the families and individuals who come to the office are safe and healthy.

Please know that, in the event Anchored Child & Family Counseling is asked to alter its hours or close for the safety of all clients/patients, I will be offering tele-health (online, computer, or phone) services. Although I do not anticipate this happening any time soon, this is important to be prepared for.

I also want to assure you that if I receive any information regarding the corona virus that involves your insurance and/or your care I will let you know as soon as possible.

Although many of the new reports may appear to be or feel exaggerated, as you know keeping our eyes open and making smart decisions is essential.

Please let me know if you have questions!
