Trauma Therapy and PTSD Treatment

You are super reactive and you feel on edge all the time. Recently, you find yourself feeling anxious, sad, and dysregulated. Often, you wonder what the heck is wrong with me and why can’t I just keep it together. If this sounds familiar, you could benefit from trauma therapy.

Stuff is coming up and it doesn’t make sense. Most of the time, it doesn't seem like it's related to the here and now. Your past has a way of rearing its ugly head at the worst times. You have a rocky childhood, but that's in the past, right? Or, something happened recently that has rocked you to your core. Moreover, no matter what you do, you can't seem to recover. These situations are really hard to manage. Luckily, trauma therapy can help you navigate them.

What Is Trauma or PTSD?

Most people will experience trauma in their lifetime. Trauma can happen after many different situations. It could be a car accident, abuse, or neglect. Sometimes, the sudden death of a loved one. Additionally, a violent criminal act, exposure to war, or a natural disaster can cause trauma.
 
Many people can recover from trauma over time. Sometimes, all it takes is the love and support of family and friends and bounce back with resiliency. However, others don't have the same outcome. Some may discover the effects of lasting trauma. These can cause a person to live with lasting symptoms. This can be deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, or posttraumatic stress. What's more, these symptoms can stay long after the event has passed.
