Although we all feel anxiety and even panic from time to time, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is a type of anxiety diagnosis that is specific to being present for or witnessing a life-threatening event. A life-threatening event may include:

  • Invasive Medical Procedures
  • Injury or Illness
  • Motor Vehicle Accidents
  • Natural Disasters
  • Death of a Loved One
  • Injury or Illness of a Loved One
  • Witness to Violence
  • Adult Sexual Assault
  • Childhood Sexual Abuse
  • Combat & Military Trauma
  • Domestic Violence
  • Physical Assault
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Victim of Crime
  • Victim of Violence
  • Witnessing Traumatic Events

Each year, about 5.2 million adults in the United States struggle with PTSD. Because the person either witnessed or experienced a traumatic event that was so shocking and overwhelming, symptoms can be triggered long after the event has passed. People may experience memories of the trauma accompanied by intense emotional and physical reactions. Symptoms might include nightmares, panic attacks, avoidance of situations that are triggering, heightened reactivity/sensitivity, anxiety, or depression. Long-term effects of PTSD can include chronic pain, autoimmune diseases, social isolation and withdrawal, loss of occupational or academic functioning, decreased interpersonal relationships, substance use and addiction, eating disorders, self-harm, and other types of negative coping skills.

No one should have to live in fear. Every person deserves to freely live their life without the stress and anxiety of wondering when a situation will trigger the next attack of symptoms. Our professionals are trained in a variety of approaches to help you process, cope, and move on from the trauma that you faced. We utilize cognitive behavioral therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, dialectical behavioral therapy, existential therapy, expressive arts therapy, person-centered therapy, play therapy for children, and other various modalities to ensure we are giving you the best chance at positive treatment outcomes. With our help, you can overcome your trauma and get your life back again.
