Trauma & PTSD Treatment

Have You Had An Overwhelming Experience That Still Effects You Today?

Life is overwhelming sometimes. When we experience a trauma, like sexual abuse or assault, abuse as a child, physical or emotional abuse, our brains get stuck.  Our mind is like a record player skipping - we experience the trauma over and over again. Small things can trigger a bad memory or make us afraid. Trauma also effects how we relate to others, making us less trusting, often isolating ourselves.

PTSD Symptoms

The effects of overwhelming events can vary for everyone.  Overall, most people experience:

  • Unwanted, upsetting memories
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Avoiding people or places that trigger unpleasant memories
  • Isolating yourself
  • Constantly on alert for danger
  • Lack of enjoyment in anything
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Overly negative thoughts about yourself and the world
  • Nightmares
  • Inability to recall certain details of the trauma
  • Irritability

You Are Not Alone, We Can Help

If you've experienced a trauma, you are not alone. Trauma makes us feel isolated from others, so the first step is to be courageous and ask for help. We have partnered with many people over the years and walked the healing journey with them.  Often people who have been abused have awful memories playing on repeat in their heads.  This is a normal reaction to trauma.  We will help you get those memories off of replay. We will work on learning skills to feel safe again and how to move forward with trusting people.
