Experiences of trauma are extremely common. According to the Adverse Childhood Experiences Studies, at least 55 percent of Minnesota adults have experienced some form of trauma before age 18.

Trauma can result in profound strength, resiliency, and growth. However, traumatic experiences can also lead to mental health and relationship challenges. This is in addition to any historical or intergenerational trauma that a person may be experiencing.

You are not alone. Hamm Clinic’s team of providers are here to help.

Why Do I Feel This Way?

What causes trauma? Experiencing or witnessing incidents like these as a child or adult can change our lives profoundly:

  • Car accidents
  • Natural disasters
  • Emotional, physical, sexual abuse
  • Witnessing or experiencing domestic violence
  • Hate crimes
  • Fighting in combat
  • Emotional or physical neglect
  • Persecution or torture based on identity or beliefs
  • Medical trauma

Sometimes, symptoms from trauma don’t seem to make sense. Trauma can leave us feeling disempowered, helpless, disconnected or without choices. Hamm Clinic therapists can help you understand why you feel the way you do … and that you don’t have to feel that way anymore.

Whether the trauma happened once or for many years, trauma is treatable.

Our Therapists Collaborate with You

At Hamm Clinic, we focus on you. Your individual history, experiences, and the context within which the trauma may have occurred (including systemic oppression) inform the plan we create together to support your recovery. We want to work together to choose a way to heal that feels right for you, whether in individual therapy, group sessions, and/or in community and cultural healing spaces. We know that trauma isn’t only healed in the individual therapy hour.

Our therapists are highly skilled in treating trauma. Many have specialized training in a variety of treatment approaches, such as Narrative Exposure Therapy, EMDR, Internal Family Systems, Emotion Focused Therapy, and more.

We will work together to develop a comprehensive plan that incorporates all the ways that people heal – physically, culturally, emotionally, and spiritually. We are here to support you whether you seek:

  • Safety and stability, both your immediate physical safety and emotional safety
  • Time to process your experiences and grieve losses and transitions
  • Reconnect with your body, your values and identity, and with a supportive community

Most of all, we are here to help so you don’t need us anymore.
