Inherited Family Trauma

Did you know we can inherit trauma from our family that can be the source of unexplained illnesses for us today? Sometimes our trauma symptoms are actually not from our own life experience. We might be working out issues from our grandparents’s trauma that we are completely unaware of. The effects of deep trauma ripple across generations and can be evidenced in physical and behavioral changes following traumatic events. A thorough trauma history should include the trauma’s of our ancestor as well as the trauma that we experienced ourselves. We can look for clues in our behavior ands beliefs to lead us back to the original trauma. Once understood and placed in the context from which they belong the reenactment can be eliminated. If this is the case for you, we can help you to honor your ancestors’ pain while also healing and moving forward with your own life.
