Healing

for those impacted by trauma

Trauma is treatable,
manageable, and healable

Trauma-focused therapy & consulting for Individuals,Providers, and Workplaces.

Every day, millions of people suffer from the impact
of trauma. You are not alone.

Trauma is never handed out fairly in life, and healing from it can be incredibly difficult.

You’re already showing so much courage just by showing up here.

But you’re also experiencing pain, and possibly shame. You might have compassion fatigue from your work with clients who have experienced trauma. .

You’re tired of people telling you to just get over it or to move on.

You want to find joy in your work again but it’s not always that easy.

Sometimes, you need someone to shine a light on your inner-strengths because it has gotten so dark you can’t see them anymore.

I believe that you already have everything inside of
you that you need to heal.

My name is Tonya Wilhelm, LICSW and I can help you work through the trauma you’ve experienced.

I provide trauma-focused therapy for people who have been exposed to trauma whether through your personal life or through work, and consulting and training services for organizations whose employees are impacted by compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma.

I’ve spent more than two decades working with people who have experienced trauma and I believe it is treatable, manageable, and healable. I partner with you on your path to healing. I can’t guarantee that it will be fun, easy, or quick, but it is doable.

If you work with me in therapy, if you show up and do the work, you can generally expect to experience:

  • a reduction in symptoms
  • an increase in skills for managing distressing symptoms
  • a deeper understanding of yourself and your life
