Recovery from PTSD is possible.

We don't aim to rid you of your past, but rather equip you with the tools necessary to lessen the harmful effects that can stem from PTSD. As part of our philosophy of support, healing, and solutions, we can provide the necessary therapy for PTSD in order to get you where you want to be. Our PTSD counselors can help to pinpoint the root cause of your symptoms so that you can advance in your healing process.

Symptoms of PTSD

Intense anxiety Frequent panic attacks Vivid flashbacks Nightmares/difficulty sleeping Physical body aches Depression

The hardest part is getting started.

Feelings of fear and guilt stop many people from seeking treatment for PTSD. Diminished self-worth, shame, and guilt are all common feelings associated with PTSD. Seeking treatment does not mean there is something wrong with you. It means that you have come to accept the fact that trauma has changed you and you’re willing to take the necessary steps to control it.

Did you know?

Approximately 60% of men and 50% of women will experience at least one traumatic event in their lifetime. About 7-8% of the population will experience symptoms of PTSD. Women are twice as likely to develop PTSD than men.

Don’t ignore your recurring PTSD symptoms.

PTSD can be very complicated. In addition to trauma and stress, it can also bring up feelings of guilt, shame, anger, sadness, and frustration. You can even experience all of these feelings at once. When you choose to ignore your PTSD symptoms, it can be easy to lose control of your feelings.

One of the biggest struggles when dealing with PTSD is that its intensity can vary from time to time. You might feel fine for months or even years until you are met with an image or sound that takes you right back to the traumatic event. Counseling not only addresses the immediate symptoms but also helps you identify and prepare for these triggers.

We can help you take back control of your life.

The symptoms of PTSD can make it feel like you have lost control. When your mind forces you to replay the event over and over again, it can feel like you never truly escaped the traumatic event. Trauma tends to be unique to the individual and our PTSD counselors are here to help you find what it means to you.

Don’t avoid life after a traumatic event. You deserve the chance to move on and we are here to help you whenever you are ready.
