Hi, I’m Kathryn Doll, LCSW, MA, ATR
And I Provide Counseling for Teens and Adults in Coral Springs, Florida.
I help teens and adults who are dealing with trauma and anxiety find peace, clarity, and empowerment. Through genuine listening and providing healing experiences that don’t always involve talking, I provide a space where you can feel safe and hopeful.
Together we will explore ways to change the way your memories affect you so that you can feel free and confident.
Helping Teens and Adults Overcome Bad Memories and Anxiety
When bad things happen, the memories may be so overwhelming that we try to shut them out completely. Sometimes shutting down feels like the only safe option. This may be true right after experiencing something bad. Over time, these memories can become stuck, draining energy and throwing our emotions off balance. Little annoyances start to feel huge, and suddenly it feels impossible to make decisions, feel peaceful, or move forward in life.
Experiencing trauma can lead to constant feelings of dread, sleep problems, nightmares, fears, and mood swings. Dealing with the memories may feel completely overwhelming, so it seems easier to “tune out” and just go through the motions of life.
If bad memories and anxiety are keeping you or your teen stuck, it may be time to seek help.
Most People Don’t Understand Trauma
Trauma affects everyone differently. Some people tend to feel numb and disconnected, while others struggle with overwhelming anger that bubbles over and feels out of control. Others are overwhelmingly sad and feel a constant sense of doom and dread. When living with trauma, it might look like you are “overreacting” to seemingly minor occurrences.
Because trauma isn’t something a person wants to share and discuss with everyone they know, it can lead to feeling misunderstood, isolated, and mistrustful. From the outside, it might look like a person who is angry, unstable, or socially awkward. It can become a vicious cycle, so that it become easier to shut people out and give up hope.
