Intergenerational Trauma


You’re holding on to patterns of the past.

You developed these patterns of thinking and behaving from your family and community.

At the time, they were adaptive, helping you cope with struggle and pain.

But now, you feel trapped in a perpetual cycle of disconnection, and you’re unsure how to move forward.

It’s like you’re stuck in quicksand.

You want to leave behind what no longer serves you and be guided by YOUR values – not what you were taught to believe.

But the more you try to escape old patterns, the deeper you sink. Trying to do it on your own feels like teaching yourself a new language.

It seems possible, but you know you need structure and support.

161154We’ll break the cycle… together.

In therapy, we will develop a roadmap to understand where you came from, where you are, and where you want to go.

We’ll examine the teachings and lessons passed down from your family, culture, and community. These patterns have been internalized through generations of your family. Let’s look at where they came from and why.

Understanding the context of these familiar patterns is key to seeing them…

And only when you see them can you evaluate if they’re getting in the way of your authentic life.

It’s about carrying forward and leaving behind…

Carrying over the lessons that are important and valuable to you…

And leaving behind the learned patterns that have made you feel isolated and disconnected…

Move on with what matters to you.
