About Madison Trauma Therapy
My name is Debbie Millman and I want to thank you for having the courage to even look at a website with the word “trauma” in it. It may be scary to admit that the word “trauma” describes at least a part of your life that still affects you now. It may be a “little t” trauma, such as not getting picked for the kickball team in 3rd grade or a “Big T” trauma, like various forms of abuse or witnessing a natural disaster. In either case, we define trauma as any event or series of events in your life that still affect the way you see yourself or feel about your self now. This impact often trickles down to other areas of your life, such as work, family, and relationships. I have a personal story of being impacted by a series of events in my life that lead me to reach out over 25 years ago and ask for help. I am grateful to have been connected with solid, caring people who invested in me and helped me overcome challenges that seemed insurmountable to me at the time. In no way have I “arrived”, but I am here to tell you that the knot in my stomach or the feeling of being emotionally paralyzed when triggered by the thought or memory of a past event is no longer something that causes my world to stop. We want to help you untangle those knots.
At MTT, we are a group of imperfect people who seek to share a hopeful message with anyone who will listen: You were created with a purpose and you are not alone. If we don’t have the availability or expertise in our group for your unique situation, we want to do everything we can to connect you with the resources and help you are looking for in our community.
We hope you’ll decide to take the next step and give us a call to see how we can help.
