Trauma + PTSD

Have you faced an event or events that you would describe as scary, abusive, horrifying, or traumatic?

Since these events have you struggled with…

  • Wanting to avoid all memories of or reminders of what happened

  • Having nightmares

  • Feeling physically activated when recalling what happened

  • Experiencing flashbacks

  • Feeling intense shame, guilt, or sadness

It is important to note that even if you did not experience symptoms immediately after the event, symptoms can happen weeks, months, and sometimes even years later. You also do not need to have all or any of the symptoms described above to deserve therapeutic services and support with what you’ve experienced. When we’ve faced a traumatic experience our brain works so hard to understand what happened and at the same time wants us to avoid, push away, and protect itself. We are specially trained to address the impact of traumatic events using approaches with strong research support. We are gentle and respectful in our approach and will never force you or push you harder than you are capable. We can help you to take back control of your life.
