Trauma & PTSD Therapy

Therapy For Trauma And PTSD

Have you experienced events in your life that were so overwhelming and stressful that they would cause anyone to shut down their feelings? Perhaps you have horrid thoughts, feelings, or visions that plague you. Or perhaps you have powerful feelings that disrupt your life but you have no memories from where they derive. Perhaps you are numb or find yourself kind of out of it at times.

Maybe you have too much anxiety, depression, or loneliness; or maybe your relationships don’t seem to work out; or you are addicted to substances like food, or television, electronic devices, or even work; or perhaps life is just not coming together as you wish.

Sometimes when psychological or emotional symptoms are severe and strong there are causes we need to identify and explore. Being involved in battle as a soldier, spousal or partner abuse, serious automobile accidents, severe health crises for ourselves or loved one, early loss of a parent or partner, and unexpected losses, as well as childhood abuse and/or neglect, or other catastrophic events can all cause these symptoms.

In a warm, compassionate and safe environment, I will help you gently come to link up your feelings and experiences with the life events that have traumatized you. The problems you are struggling with currently will lead the way to understanding the causes of your distress, remembering them, and ultimately releasing you from their grip.

I have studied the treatment of such serious problems for years under the guidance of experts in the field. I have specialized in this treatment and have facilitated great relief in many people over the years. I encourage you to give this work a try for lasting change.
