Therapists in Florida specializing in Trauma and Psychodynamic Therapy

Therapy for Trauma

Trauma is the result of experiencing a perceived, extremely distressful event. Although the stress threshold for each person differs, meaning that each person considers and experiences trauma differently, it is an event that tops one’s threshold. It exceeds one’s ability to cope or emotionally process. Symptoms may include shock, anxiety, confusion, hopelessness, feeling disconnected, mood swings, nightmares, and intrusive thoughts. Working with a therapist who specializes in trauma may reduce symptom frequency and severity and lead to a better quality of life.

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic therapy is similar to psychoanalytic therapy, it's a form of in-depth talk-therapy, but less focused on the person's relationship with the therapist. It usually involves less sessions and at a lower rate of frequency. You’ll find mental health professionals who specialize in psychodynamic therapy listed below.
