The Problem with Traditional Methods of Healing

Lack of trauma-informed care

Finding trauma-informed care can be challenging due to a combination of factors, including lack of training, stigma, systemic barriers, lack of standardization, and the complexity of trauma. This can lead to survivors of childhood trauma not getting the proper care and even receiving treatments that re-traumatize them and worsen things.

Mind-Body-Spirit Disconnect

Western medicine focuses on a reductionist approach to healthcare—doctors are trained to look at the body parts in isolation. This approach has been successful in treating acute medical conditions. However, it fails to serve trauma survivors because it doesn’t account for the mind-body-spirit connection to health and healing. Since it doesn’t address the root causes of illness, conditions continue to worsen. Leaving you with failing health and feeling more disconnected each day.

Quick fix approach

Western medicine often relies on a “quick fix” approach to healthcare, emphasizing pharmaceuticals and other interventions that treat symptoms rather than underlying causes. For example, if a patient presents with a headache, a reductionist approach would focus on treating the headache rather than exploring the underlying causes of the headache.

Scattered information

Finding trauma-informed care has been incredibly difficult to find because of a lack of education, standardization, and limited availability of providers. Most healthcare providers, including doctors and therapists, are not trauma-informed because it’s not formal training. This leaves patients feeling frustrated and desperate to find the right help because you have to piece together the puzzle alone.

The shadows keeping you trapped

complex trauma creates ripples of negative impact on moms' lives...

Shadows of your past can make you feel trapped, impacting all all aspects of your life, including relationships, careers, and parenting. 

Healing from the effects of childhood trauma can feel isolating. It often requires years of struggling to piece together trauma-informed education, mental health resources, and emotional support, which aren’t even targeted to motherhood-specific problems. All of this makes healing difficult, painful, and long.

That’s why I started Awakened Mom Life. I don’t want you to struggle like I did.
