Uncovering the Hidden Impact of Unresolved Trauma: An Interview with Elizabeth Cush (LCPC)

Mental health and self-care are essential components of living a fulfilling life, but for many of us, unresolved past trauma can impede our ability to take care of ourselves and make healthy decisions. In this interview, we sit down with Elizabeth Cush (LCPC), a licensed clinical professional counselor, women's life coach, and business owner. Elizabeth is also the host of the Awaken Your Wise Woman podcast, and she shares her valuable insights on mental health, self-care, and dealing with past trauma.

Elizabeth's perspective on the importance of mental health and self-care is clear - it's not just about feeling good, but about being able to show up fully in life. She suggests incorporating self-care practices such as journaling, meditation, and therapy as a means of improving mental health.

But what about past trauma that continues to linger and affect our present-day well-being? Elizabeth stresses the importance of addressing past trauma in order to move forward in life. She recommends seeking out therapy or counseling, and utilizing techniques such as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to process and heal from past trauma.

But how does unresolved trauma seep into our everyday life and affect our decisions? Elizabeth draws from personal experience to illustrate how unresolved trauma can lead to self-sabotaging behaviors and a lack of trust in oneself. It's not just about individual instances of trauma, but about the accumulation of unresolved experiences that can shape our beliefs and actions.

Through this interview, we gain valuable knowledge and understanding on the importance of addressing past trauma to improve overall well-being. As Elizabeth states, "healing is a lifelong journey, but it's worth it."
