What can TraumaLine1 do for you?
Searching on TraumaLine1 is simple. If you need care for PTSD or other post-trauma related difficulty you can search for a counsellor based on location, treatment modalities, therapist specialty, gender, or languages spoken. Once the search is complete, you have the opportunity to review the therapist’s training, education, license, years in practice, affiliations, and trauma therapy skills.
Trauma can occur at any time and any place. Mental Health Counseling and care for trauma survivors requires special training and an understanding of the impact of trauma on survivors, their families and their communities. Getting the right help can lead to progress in trauma recovery and a timely response can make the difference between years of unnecessary suffering and a reasonable and healthy recovery process. Finding you a skilled trauma professional is our goal, as we strive to provide a centralized database that showcases those professionals specializing in trauma recovery.
Providing the care you need, when and where you need it, for recovery and growth after Trauma!
What is TraumaLine1?
TraumaLine1 is an online matching service, connecting skilled and dedicated trauma counselors and consultants to those needing care in the aftermath of trauma.
TraumaLine1 was developed by an independent team of consultants directed by Dr. Baranowsky. The TraumaLine1 platform is a showcase for trauma professionals and those trauma impacted individuals, organizations and family, friends and colleagues of trauma survivors looking for post-trauma recovery services.
Why do we need TraumaLine1?
Searching for a therapist was never an easy task. In the past, the process of finding a therapist was overwhelming and often embarrassing. Asking your family doctor for a referral didn’t guarantee a good match, and talking to friends and colleagues for recommendations just wasn't something everyone was comfortable with.
With the use of the internet, you can search for information about therapy and local counselors, while still maintaining your privacy. However, when searching for therapists who specialize in trauma counselling, even now, the options are limited.
This is where TraumaLine1 comes in. This service is dedicated to matching trauma survivors with mental health professionals who are trained trauma counsellors. These skilled trauma professionals can provide timely and informed care and counseling to trauma survivors, and to those who have been secondarily impacted (struggling with compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma) by their relationships with trauma survivors.
