Trauma Support and Recovery

Symptoms of trauma may include persistent avoidance of reminders associated with the traumatic event, exaggerated negative beliefs (e.g, I can't trust anyone, I am not worthy), persistent negative emotional states, feelings of detachment from others, persistent inability to experience positive emotions, hypervigilance, problems with concentration, angry outbursts, irritability, and recklessness. If you feel like your symptoms are getting in the way of you living your best life, ask for help.

We offer trauma education, supportive counseling, and evidence-based trauma-focused psychotherapies for individuals who may need more specific support to address their symptoms of traumatic stress.

Click on the flyers and links below to find out more information about the evidence-based psychotherapies we offer, which are supported by extensive research and recommended by organizations such as the American Psychological Association, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, and the World Health Organization as effective treatments for PTSD and related problems.
