A student began counseling during the academic year with concerns of anger and some reports of previous abuse. The student would only talk about minor things going on in her life because talking about the trauma would make her too upset. During a session, she explained that she felt she needed to open up about her emotions and “take off her mask”. The student was able to discuss and process trauma that she reported she “never felt comfortable telling anyone”. The student reporting feeling much better expressing the emotions inside saying, “this is the happiest I have ever been” because she was able to get so much “off her chest”.
