When you are a child suffering trauma, it can seem like the world is crashing down on you. You are scared, lonely, and often don’t know what to do. Because you are a child, you have no ability to get help. Hence, you have to rely on yourself to cope and adapt with the environment around you. This produces effects that last into adulthood that may not be the most healthy for you.

Dr. Lara Dye is a clinical psychologist who specializes in helping people who suffered childhood trauma. Based in Austin, she counsels people all over Texas through her telehealth therapy services. She creates a safe and confidential environment for you to share your story, your world, and your problems. This allows her to develop a personalized treatment plan to give you the skills you need to grow as a human. Below, we’ll go over some of the effects of childhood trauma.

Passive-aggressive nature.

No one really likes someone who is passive-aggressive. Passive-aggressive is where you don’t directly say no to someone, but instead you do things to undermine that person. One example would be someone who almost finishes a job, but leaves the a small part of it undone so you’ll have to finish it. If you’ve experienced childhood trauma, you may have developed some passive-aggressive personality traits since you couldn’t directly confront your abuser as a child. While the abuse is over, it’s insanely hard to stop passive-aggressive behavior because it’s so ingrained. With the help of a wonderful childhood trauma therapist, such as Dr. Lara Dye, you can get the tools you need to stop passive-aggressive behavior and aggression altogether.


Akin to passive-aggressive behavior, being passive is accepting things as they are and not bothering to try to change it. They are the people you know who tend to never have an opinion on anything, who never take charge, who never have an original thought, and who take forever to make simple decisions, such as which movie to go and see. While most of these people lead very happy lives, they aren’t living up to their potential. An expert in childhood trauma therapy can help you live your potential.


Dr. Lara Dye, an addiction specialist and a registered CSAT, wants you to live up to your potential and to do what you were meant to do. By having the tools in your wheelhouse to discover what makes your heart sing or what keeps you up at night cause you are so excited, you can make your wildest dreams come true.

Dr. Lara Dye has been helping people overcome childhood trauma for years. She is passionate about helping you lead your best life possible. She offers both group therapy and individual therapy so you can decide which one works the best for you. Whether you’re in Austin, Dallas, or anywhere in the state of Texas, Dr. Lara Dye can help. Make that call today!
