Trauma Resolutions for Christians

Many pastors and well-meaning Christians are unable to help us sort out the impact of past trauma. While these well-meaning people have their hearts in the right place, the invalidation one experiences when they reach out for help, sometimes makes recovery worse. I was once told to “go home and get over it.”  This did not help but only made me withdraw and be me more isolated. (Click Here to read more info on this by Bessel Von der Kolk)

Abuse Counseling: Relationships

When people we trust or rely on the most hurt us, it causes damage at the very root of who we are. Many times abuse takes place during childhood and can cause emotional or spiritual problems well into adulthood. Trudy has the necessary understanding and experience to help abuse victims take the best possible steps for their situations.

Abuse Counseling: Sexual Abuse

According to the NIMH, one in three women will be sexually abused by the time they are nineteen years old.  One in six men will be sexually abused by the time they are nineteen years old.  The secret of sexual abuse can permeate every fiber of one’s being and influence how a person responds to every aspect of their everyday life.  If you have this secret, an A’nesis Counseling Sabbatical is your hope for freedom.  Come away to this secluded place to face your fears.  Click Here for Trudy’s invitation video
