Therapy for Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

PTSD is a condition that is precipitated by a perceived terrifying event. This event need not occur directly to the person but may happen vicariously—having seen something terrible happen to another person. The condition may last months or years while symptoms include ruminating thoughts, flashbacks, nightmares, intense anxiety when triggered, and potential substance abuse in an attempt to cope. Working with a therapist who specializes in treating PTSD may reduce symptom frequency and severity and lead to a better quality life.
