Untreated trauma is often at the core of many of todays mental health issues like, anxiety, compulsions, depression, self-esteem, and even how we handle our relationships. Especially painful is how trauma prompts feelings of guilt and shame, leaving you feeling disconnected and isolated from others, even your loved ones.

You feel they don’t understand you- heck, you don’t even understand yourself sometimes! If you are like many of our clients, untreated trauma might be behind your constant feelings of shame or guilt, feelings that are like emotional scars lingering long after your childhood has ended.

Hi, I’m Sandy Hartley, a therapist here at Syrona. I can help you identify and heal from past issues you have pushed away, hoping to be “past them”, only to find that they are following you, even today.

Untreated trauma robs you of living your life fully. It steals your confidence and takes your self esteem prisoner. But- trauma can be healed.

That’s why we provide a safe space to explore and heal from your trauma through our counseling retreat format. Here’s how you can get started:

Your inner light may be dim but with trauma-based counseling, that light can be fully revealed, bringing it back to illuminating you from the inside-out. You can learn to love yourself, work through your trauma and stresses. You can discover yourself again.
