The Impacts of Trauma
Trauma Therapy Can Help
Meeting with a therapist can help you reduce your symptoms. A trauma therapist can teach you coping skills to manage overwhelming feelings. Additionally, they will teach you grounding skills to help you be present in every moment. Both of these strategies are very effective in helping those in trauma therapy.
What is PTSD?
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition in which experiencing a traumatic event affects your day-to-day functioning. And symptoms of PTSD include intrusive memories, avoidance, increased negativity, along with others. Furthermore, it can be challenging to differentiate between having trauma and having a PTSD diagnosis. A therapist can help with this. Often, it can be helpful for people to understand their diagnosis. We know this can be confusing to navigate on your own. And our therapists have the skills to help you make sense of what’s going on.
Our Approach to Trauma Therapy and PTSD Treatment
One of the most effective trauma interventions is eye movement desensitization reprocessing therapy (EMDR). EMDR is a highly effective therapy for processing trauma. However, it is not a good fit for everyone. Our therapists offer EMDR therapy as a way to help you move forward from the past by processing memories. Prior to EMDR therapy, these memories are very painful and can bring up intense emotions. After working through the eight EMDR phases, you will be able to recall these challenging experiences with less emotional attachment.
