"The Biology of Trauma and How it relates to Mood Disorders" Carla Naragon LMFT is a seasoned clinician who has a specialty in Trauma Treatment. "Trauma is a term that applies to a wide range of experiences, conditions, and emotions. Depression, anxiety, and addictions are often rooted in past traumas, which may be long forgotten, or which may seem insignificant now. Other times trauma stands on its own, and is very clearly the central problem a person is dealing with. Trauma could apply to a relationship ending under painful circumstances, losing a job, losing a loved one, as well as being the victim of a crime, or experiencing a sexual assault. It may include being involved in domestic violence, a car accident, or from having spent time in war zones, as soldiers or as medical personnel." https://www.carlanaragon.com/
