Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health disorder that can be a result of experiencing or witnessing a particularly traumatic or life threatening event. Children, adolescents, and adults who have been diagnosed with PTSD may experience flashbacks, nightmares, severe anxiety, and even have uncontrollable thoughts about the event.

Symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

PTSD can occur after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. Symptoms can include—

  • Difficulty falling or staying asleep
  • Feeling numb or on edge
  • Sad or empty feelings
  • Difficulty trusting others
  • Flashbacks
  • Avoidance of situations that remind you of the trauma

Counseling Can Help

We use a multi-modal approach for PTSD counseling and treatment. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a goal-oriented psychotherapy treatment that takes a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving. Its goal is to change patterns of thinking or behavior that are behind people’s difficulties, and so change the way they feel. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR )is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences.  Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. Contact one of our therapists today to find the approach that works best for you. We will work with you and your physician if medication is a necessary adjunct to treatment.

PTSD counseling is tied to trauma counseling, and is ideal for those individuals who:

  • Have experienced abuse as children and/or adults
  • Have experienced or witnessed traumatic events
  • Are Police officers or other first responders
  • Are Military personnel
  • Are Mental health professionals
