Rising through obstacles,
One day at a time
Welcome to Lotus Trauma Care. Here, we believe that love and hope are more powerful than fear and pain. While traumatic experiences such as abuse, neglect, addiction, violence, loss, separation and abandonment can reek havoc in the lives of youth and their families, we know that healing is possible. Through a multi-systemic approach and strength-based care, we join with our clients and service providers to restore a sense of safety, power, and joy.
Whether you have been abused, mistreated, lost or left behind, or whether you have intentionally hurt yourself or others, committed a crime, or become addicted to alcohol or drugs - we believe your experiences do not define you. It is our passion to serve you with the compassion and respect you deserve, and to empower you to author your own story.
