Past events, sometimes long forgotten, can continue to exert a negative effect on someone even though the events themselves no longer exist. These "ghosts of the past" can fuel emotions such as anxiety and depression, guilt, shame, and rage.
Trauma need not be as dramatic as violence. Minor traumas accumulated over a lifetime can drain our vital energy, too. Lots of trauma occurs in childhood, much of it at home or school, and most is largely forgotten. A harsh look from a teacher or a sarcastic comment from a parent or friend can, if not resolved, eat away at a person's sense of well being for a lifetime. The GOOD NEWS is that all this can be cleared and resolved quickly and painlessly, leading to TRANSFORMATION that many people might think is not even possible.
If you've been feeling STUCK, unable to change your feelings, thoughts, or behavior, it is likely that past events have continued to "haunt" you. Unresolved events can affect your relationships, your career, and your health. Isn't it time to break free of painful and destructive patterns?

Sexual violence in America is a far more prevalent crime than most law-abiding citizens would suspect. Here are the facts, courtesy of the Institute for Survivors of Sexual Violence, Inc.:
- Someone is sexually assaulted every 2 minutes in the U.S.
- There are more than 60 million survivors of childhood sexual abuse in U.S.
- 25% of teenage girls have been sexually or physically abused or date raped.
- One out of six women has experienced rape or attempted rape.
- One in six boys are assaulted sexually before they turn 16.
- Nearly 50% of rape victims are under age 18, and 15% are under age 12.
Many survivors of sexual violence suffer emotionally for years after the crime. RAPID TRAUMA RESOLUTION, a specific form of trauma therapy I use that was developed by world renowned therapist and trainer of therapists Dr. Jon Connelly, has helped thousands escape the grip of painful emotions that can block a person's full participation in life.
