If I ever want to stop a conversation dead in its tracks, all I usually have to do is share with a new acquaintance that I’m a therapist who specializes in trauma. I’ve learned through the years that trauma is a topic most people don’t actively seek to engage in for a variety of reasons. Unfortunately, silence can exacerbate the deep wounds of trauma.

Our Three-Tiered Approach
To Trauma Training and Treatment
Failure to acknowledge the pervasiveness of trauma on the development of children and in the lives of adults is a significant threat to relationships, families, churches, and communities…Yes, it hurts, and it’s messy, but it’s what God called us to do.
Dr. Vanessa Snyder, Director Richmont Institute of Traumatology
As most people have experienced trauma on some level, I wanted to learn how to be sensitive and support people in tough places. Not only that, but to walk alongside them as they write the rest of their story-acknowledging but not confined by the past.
