PTSD Therapy

Events such as acts of terrorism or war, serious accidents, rape or violent personal assaults can traumatize us deeply, and have an impact upon our lives for many years after the event. If you’re suffering from a sense of fear that won’t dissipate, or are continually anxious with little control over how you think and act, you could be suffering from PTSD, or posttraumatic stress disorder.

With almost 4% of the U.S adult population thought to suffer from PTSD, no longer is it only associated with war veterans, and people of all nationalities, ages, races and cultures are vulnerable to this serious, mental health challenge. In fact, women are twice as likely to suffer from it, than men.

If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms, you could have PTSD:

  • Long lasting and intense thoughts or feelings related to the traumatic event
  • Flashbacks and nightmares
  • Detachment from friends and family
  • Avoidance of any reminders of the traumatic event
