Trauma & PTSD
Our goal is not only to reduce your Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) symptoms, but to help you restore a sense of safety and give you a greater capacity for trust.
The strain on the nervous system after experiencing trauma can not be over stated. You may begin to feel disconnected from the world and ultimately disconnected from yourself. You may feel a need to avoid certain places, people, or situations. This could cause difficulty in achieving success in every day life. Trauma comes in many different forms and PTSD can be developed from catastrophic events to "smaller" seemingly "less harmful" frequent experiences. The brain is wired to protect you and these traumatic moments may signal for the brain to become overreactive to otherwise safe/normal situations, cause a heightened awareness (hypervigilence) within natural environments, and/or trigger fight, flight, or freeze responses in situations that could be more easily resolved.
No matter what you are experiencing, PTSD can be treated. We utilize models such as EMDR, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and many others. We have professional clinicians on staff that have significant experience working with individuals similar to yourself.
There is hope. You do not have to live this way any longer. You can increase a sense of safety and rebuild trust within yourself. You can reduce PTSD symptoms, sleep better, have more energy, and achieve healthier relationships. You can Live Well.
