Stress & Trauma
It is a well known fact that stress is a major contributor to health related conditions. Whether it's occupational, relational, social, historical, or biological in nature, stress and how we cope with it is often a key factor to comprehensive wellness. Fortunately, after decades of passion, advocacy, stewardship, and vigilance the terms stress, trauma, and their implications have entered the mainstream culture.

“Trauma is not what happens to us, but what we hold inside in the absence of an empathetic witness.”
