Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is an injury caused by a blow to the head that causes loss of consciousness, dizziness or post traumatic amnesia. Following the initial 3-month recovery period it may be helpful to have a neuropsychological assessment to track cognitive changes. Psychotherapy can also be helpful for those with persistent issues also referred to as post-concussion syndrome (PCS). Common difficulties often include sensory overstimulation, fatigue, and problems containing emotions. In therapy you can learn skills to adjust to your challenges and increase your quality of life. Specialists who understand TBI can validate your experience, help you learn how to adapt to your new life and grieve the changes that have come from your injury.

TBIs don't discriminate. TBIs can change your identity to a point where you are barely recognizable from those you love. TBIs can create guilt and shame due to the challenges experienced in your life. Anger, irritability, sleep, and fatigue impact all areas of your life. Some facets of the TBI can be healed. For the parts that can't be healed, compensation strategies can be learned and implemented.
