Hope & Wellness Services provides trauma-focused counseling for children, adults, and caregivers. A trauma-informed approach reflects adherence to the following key principles*:
- Trustworthiness and Transparency
- Peer support
- Collaboration and mutuality
- Empowerment, voice, and choice
- Cultural, Historical, and Gender Issues
We recognize that a traumatic event may be a single event, a series of events, or chronic, lasting stress. We offer a wide range of trauma-informed services that consider the events contributing to a trauma response, as well as the response itself. Furthermore, interventions are created in collaboration with the client and in consideration of the client’s identified needs, culture, and values.
