Did you grow up with parent(s) who were narcissist, controlling, alcohol abusers, not supportive or neglectful? Early childhood experiences can shape how we think and behave as adults, often in ways that are not helpful, such as: finding toxic partners, over-thinking, difficulty with decisions and knowing what we want, low self esteem, people pleasing (saying yes when we want to say no), poor boundaries and over-focusing on others. The good news is that change is possible.

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) is a unique approach to psychotherapy. ART is unique because the ART Therapist guides the client to replace the negative images in the mind that cause the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress with positive images of the client’s choosing. And this is done quickly, most often within one session! Once the negative images have been replaced by positive ones, the triggers will be gone.

PTSD can be caused by one or more traumatic events—either experienced personally or vicariously. The trauma then affects your day-to-day life after that. C-PTSD is another form of trauma, but it occurs over an extended period rather than from a singular event. I utilize Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy with clients who struggle with PTSD and C-PTSD because I have seen the changes personally.

I specialized in treating adult children of abuse. Abuse in childhood changes the brain. Fortunately, we now know that the brain is neuroplastic; it can heal itself. With the right treatment approach, the brains of those who were abused in childhood can change.

— Sara A. Morgan, Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in Austin, TX

I have worked extensively with survivors of all ages who have endured emotional, mental, spiritual, physical and sexual abuse. Often the abuse took place within the context of a relationship (e.g. parents, a trusted adult, family member or friend) resulting in sometimes severe struggles with trust of both themselves and others as well as self-worth and self-respect. I have walked along side many survivors to provide hope and healing.

Weather you have had a “Big T” trauma or several “Little t” trauma, I understand how trauma shapes our mindsets and therefore our lives. Whether it happened directly to you or to someone higher up on our family tree (intergeneration trauma), you might be struggling with just how deeply affected you are by the trauma you had, even if it was years ago. It can be overwhelming and I can help, you don't have to go it alone.

Abuse can be extremely difficult to bring up to your therapist and that's okay. You have control on when and how you want to open about this issue. I believe in creating safe space and having a connection with my clients is the start of the process.

Do you sometimes wonder whether you're crazy, like you're not sure your experiences with another person are quite how you perceive them? This is a sign of abuse. There are many ways in which abuse can be inflicted on us, and even if we're not sure we're being abused, we always feel the effects in other ways, such as experiencing mood swings, feeling afraid even if you're not sure why, and difficulty sleeping or eating. I can offer you information on abuse so that you can feel empowered.
