Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Coral Springs, FL
I have worked in Substance Use Dx/dual-diagnoses treatment centers for the last 6 yrs. Alcohol is available almost everywhere/anywhere 24/7. It becomes more than a habit 7 you've tried to stop to no consistent avail. Don't wait for live damage, wet-brain, increased memory loss, decreased potential, & more strained relationships before you seek help. Maybe your spirituality has suffered too. Find out what you can do now to have your cake and eat it too without the damages of alcohol.
I am trained in eye movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR) w extensive experience working w abuse survivors, vets.. PTSD/cPTSD are a result of traumatic experiences occurring >/=1x & sometimes chronic. Symptoms may include: Intrusive thoughts, suppression of emotions, nightmares, flashback or dissociative symptoms, loss of memory, unexplained anger/anger-outbursts, depression, anxiety, difficulty trusting ppl, avoidance of ppl/places/things that trigger you, hypervigilance, & hyperarousal.
It's not a secret that Covid-19 has caused many live's to transition. This is the icing on the cake for some people. Many individuals are undergoing job changes, marriage strain, moving locations, grieving the loss of a loved one and all the life transitions that occur as a result of these. Marriage, a promotion, an exciting move are typically positive, but can also be stressful and require support. Life transitions occur and no one is exempt from needing extra support when these occur.
