Our Story

   The Black Butterfly   

Emotional and psychological trauma is the result of extraordinarily frightening or distressful events that shatter your sense of security or make you feel helpless and can lead to challenges in functioning or normally coping afterward.

 

In these cases, those memories repeatedly replay, and a traumatized person will have trouble controlling them. The side effects can include anxiety, feeling numb, disconnected, and severe trust issues towards other people.

 

Traumatic events are not always personal physical experiences. Any experience that causes you to feel intense negative emotions, can be traumatic – such as witnessing, watching, or hearing something.

Deciding whether something is traumatic or not is not based on each person’s subjective emotional reaction to the event.

 

The depth of trauma relates to the intensity of negative emotions felt about the experience. In other words, the same experience could have different effects on different people. For you, it might be traumatic, but not for others.

Many people think about "wellness" in terms of physical health only. The word invokes thoughts of nutrition, exercise, weight management, blood pressure, etc.

 

Wellness, however, is much more than physical health. Wellness is a full integration of physical, mental and spiritual well-being. It is a complex interaction that leads to quality of life.  

Wellness is the act of practicing healthy habits on a daily basis to attain better physical and mental health outcomes, so that instead of just surviving, you're thriving.

Our mission at The Black Butterfly is to align physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual wellbeing with empathy, trust and understanding.

Our vision is a world where just being here, being ourselves, is enough. We can each look within our hearts to discover what is true for us, what gives our lives meaning, and what excites us. We can release ourselves from any pressure to perform that comes from outside of our inner sense of purpose.
