Feel trapped in overdrive – on edge, irritable, ready to snap?
Do you experience poor concentration or confusion, or feel easily overwhelmed?
Do you suffer from trauma related scars, nightmares, or flashbacks?
Do you avoid situations or reminders of the traumatic event?
Are you suffering from post traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, or depression?
You are not alone.
A study published in the Journal of Traumatic Stress revealed that Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is perhaps more common than you think. Just over eight percent of people in our community will experience PTSD in their lifetimes.
Trauma can alter how the brain functions. Its signs and symptoms can vary from finding it difficult to trust, and being constantly on guard, to sudden panic and intrusive, anxiety-ridden thoughts. While the signs and symptoms can feel overwhelming, feeling better is more than possible.
Through my Art of Wellness practice, I can work together with you in an environment of compassion and empathy. I can provide Evidence-Based techniques that support you in a healthier journey toward wellness.
So if these sound like you…
– I struggle with anxiety or depression
– I relive traumatic events with accompanying unwanted memories, vivid images, and physical signs like sweating, palpitations, and panic attacks
– I am hyper vigilant or easily frightened
– I feel edgy or irritable often
– I feel like the joy, love, and other positive emotions have been sucked from my life
– I’d like help to better understand and cope with previous trauma
– I want to live an easier, happier, more connected life
…Then trauma therapy may offer the appropriate therapeutic approach for you.
Trauma therapy combines different approaches and techniques to help decrease the painful mental and physical responses raised by the memory of traumatic events. Trauma therapy seeks to create healthier patterns in your brain.
In therapy, we can identify the source and triggers for your emotional and physical suffering. We can discuss ways to cope with unhealthy thoughts and behaviors. Together, we can encourage techniques to manage distress that can enable you to move forward.
