Help for Trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Psychotherapy treatment from Long Island based mental health clinicians
Trauma & PTSD
Those who have experienced trauma all have unique experiences that can trigger symptoms of emotional and even physical discomfort. PTSD can affect those who have experienced a traumatic event, witnessed someone experience a traumatic event, and/or learning that a traumatic event has occurred to someone they know. The symptoms of PTSD can often interfere with daily functioning and can create significant emotional distress in individuals that have experienced trauma.
Some symptoms of PTSD include:
- Recurrent, involuntary and intrusive distressing memories of the traumatic event
- Recurrent and distressing dreams in which the content of the dream are related to the event
- Flashbacks in which the individual feels or acts as if the events were recurring
- Persistent avoidance of things associated with the event
- Negative thoughts and moods after the event occurred.
- Hypervigilance and reactivity.
Psychotherapy has been shown to significantly improve quality of life for those suffering with symptoms of PTSD. Our team uses various interventions to treat symptoms of PTSD, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Narrative Therapy.
The interventions we use are an evidence-based, gentle approach to meet your needs. Our clinicians work with individuals by providing empathetic listening to explore their trauma. Our clinicians introduce coping skills and grounding techniques when symptoms and hypervigilance are present, to help the individual navigate reactions to their trauma.
If you feel that these symptoms of PTSD apply to you, and you find value in our treatment approach, we highly recommend our services. Psychotherapy has been proven to show improvement with PTSD symptoms. Psychotherapy can also used in conjunction with psychiatric intervention and medication from a psychiatrist.
