Heal & Clear Trauma

All of our counselors seek specialized training in healing trauma, unresolved anger, grief, shame, and more, as this is one of the primary missions of Harmony Harbor Counseling. Some counselors provide hypnotherapy through Rapid Resolution Therapy. Others are either Basic or Master Trained in Accelerated Resolution Therapy, which utilizes eye movements like in EMDR. It is possible to heal from trauma and we seek interventions to resolve and clear trauma in ways that are the least painful for our clients, leaving you restored and empowered.

      Testimonials

      “First and foremost, I want to thank you.  But to me thanking you is just not enough.  These are just words.  You gave me my life back.  There is nothing in the world that I could say or give to you that would measure up to what you truly deserve.  I remember the day… I had left a message, but I wasn’t getting my hopes up; apparently you were not taking more clients.  But then you called me back; you found time to fit me into your life.  That was the first time, in a long time that I felt hope.  Hope that maybe my life isn’t over yet.  Maybe I would finally have a reason to live; maybe you could actually help me.  Most of my life, I spent wishing I could just end it all, the misery and the sadness I felt was too much to carry.  But then, I started to work with you.  You were unlike any doctor or therapist I’d met. You were actually interested in what I had to say, you listened to me, you were patient and kind to me, and most of all you introduced me to DBT.  I can’t thank you enough for bringing DBT into my life.  It saved me.  You saved me…Now I can say to myself that God has a plan for me, I have my whole life ahead of me… I finally have a life worth living.”

      “To live in fear, shame and guilt, I know what that feels like.  To punish yourself daily for past mistakes you have made, as well as taking it out on others around you and their issues, I have lived that.  To hold court in your head and be your own judge and jury, to be misunderstood about what others think of you… That is the person I was.  Then there was God and beautiful, radical acceptance.  I can’t mention how DBT has helped me without talking about how God has helped me understand, and implement this program.  I now understand that DBT and all of its parts are like tools in the toolbox of life.  During this process, God pulled me out of the pit of despair and set my feet on solid ground….  I was so full of rage, and anger, and it usually came out in very ugly ways.  Then, I was introduced to distress tolerance.  Learning distract skills, how to self soothe, improve my moment, and the pros and cons of my actions…..It meant that I could finally learn how to “ride the wave” or manage my anger without the usual fallout…  I choose to understand that I am not perfect, I will make mistakes and people will disappoint me.  I will get angry, but it is how I choose to handle that anger, emotionally, rationally, or both wise mind… Was it easy for me?  No way, it is a process and sometimes it takes more than one time to get where I am right now.  There is no shame in validating yourself.  There is no judgment in DBT…  I will be using my DBT skills with God’s help in my life….  I pray all of you will know the peace I have, and the toolbox I carry with me, can be yours too.  DBT works, if you let it. ….”

      “My time here has been more helpful to me than spending years with medicine and a doctor. Thank you.”

      “I just wanted to thank you for all you’ve done for me.  You have gone above and beyond any therapist I’ve had.  I feel like I can tell you anything and you are so compassionate and understanding.  I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for you and group.  You have helped me more than you know and I’m very grateful to have found you when I thought there was no hope for me.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

      “I feel like I’ve thanked you so many times it’s losing its full value.  So, I just wanted to let you know that you have been the most influential person in my life, not to mention inspirational as well.  You are helping me become a person I can finally start to accept.  I am forever grateful to have you as my therapist.”

      “DBT means to me… I was having major anxiety attacks and really bad depression.  Several times I attempted suicide.  I had serious PTSD…I felt so hopeless for so long…I was afraid all the time.  I met a therapist.  She was wonderful… My PTSD was still controlling my life.  She recommended DBT.  I was at the end of my rope.  I had nothing left to lose.  The thought of being in a group setting terrified me…She assured me, I would be safe.  I put my trust in her.  As I was going through the modules, I began to see things I had forgotten.  While in group sharing stories and going over the material, I saw parts of my old self…I wanted to be the person I was…That wasn’t gonna happen.  I had to accept that.  It was really hard to do that.  Once I did accept that, DBT, the material and the group began rebuilding a new me.  I recognized things that I used to be. Validation, wise mind, Interpersonal effectiveness.  That was the person I once was…. After four months, DBT has changed my life for the better…I still have PTSD but now I have a positive way to deal with it.  I’m reclaiming my life… DBT has given me my freedom back.  Thank you to everyone here and the people before for being brave enough to share.”
