What is trauma? Trauma is anything that splits your life into a before and an after.

When trauma finally registers as what it actually is, and you allow yourself to acknowledge and name it, you will start to see the ripples that your traumatic experiences have cast throughout your life. You will begin to identify behavioral patterns within yourself, as well as chain reactions that all link back to specific moments in time.
