Trauma can be as slight as a child’s humiliating moment at school, or it can be as horrific as rape, surviving a life-threatening car accident, or being exposed to combat.

At Woodlands Family Institute, we approach trauma from several perspectives. Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Meditation, and Mindfulness have all been shown through research to be helpful.

But no matter what therapeutic approach is used, we know that it is safety, empathy, and trust that helps move a person past the crippling effects of trauma. Our counselors are careful to provide this relationship and environment in order to reduce the intensity of trauma’s after effects.

Dr. Joanne Parham, Theora Noble, Josh Parham, Dr. Stephen Parham, and Nicole Suarez-Bronfman have specialized training and experience with effectively treating trauma.
