Healing for the Survivor and the Supporter
Every Tuesday evening, Michael watched his wife Sabrina head to her one-on-one counseling sessions after work. After holding onto her trauma for many years, she was finally getting the help and support she needed to recover. Michael was thankful for the Crisis Center, but also wanted to do more to help his wife.
That’s when Sabrina’s counselor mentioned that the Crisis Center offers support groups for those whose family members are receiving trauma counseling. Through the Hope for Healing group, James learned how to better support his wife in her healing journey. He learned about the different triggers Sabrina had and how her trauma had impacted her over the years.
Michael found his new knowledge on trauma not only made him a better husband, but opened channels of communication between him and his wife that had never existed before. Sabrina was more comfortable opening up about her trauma, and Michael felt equipped to help her. Thanks to the support of donors, Sabrina was finally able to find healing, and Michael was able to ensure he was there for her every step of the way.
