Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that's triggered by a traumatic, scary or dangerous event. PTSD can be caused by either witnessing or experiencing the trauma. Events that sometimes trigger PTSD include everything from sexual assault, war, and violence, to car accidents or other incidents that could cause loss of life. It is not at all uncommon for people who go through something traumatic to have temporary difficulty coping and acute symptoms, but with time, they usually get better. However, if the symptoms last longer than a month, get worse rather than better and affect your ability to function, you may be suffering from PTSD. Symptoms of PTSD may include severe anxiety, anger, nightmares, trouble sleeping, flashbacks to the event, frightening thoughts, avoidance of situations or places, feeling on edge and/or being easily startled. If you think you may be experiencing PTSD, reach out to one of TherapyDen’s specialists today to get help.
Are you struggling to heal from trauma, addiction, or making the necessary changes to better your life? Starting therapy, especially to heal trauma, can feel overwhelming & difficult. But you don’t have to do it alone. If you are looking for someone to help guide you on this journey, want a relaxed environment, but a straightforward & direct therapist who vows to treat you with respect & compassion, let’s talk. I have weekend, evening, & telehealth appointments available to best meet your needs.
As someone who grew up in a dysfunctional or divorced family, you're finding yourself struggling to cope with overwhelming emotions in adulthood. Maybe you've been hurt by your parents, struggle with confidence or self-esteem, or have trouble finding balance in romantic relationships. Whether you're wanting to explore how painful past experiences are continuing to show up in your life, or you're wanting a safe space to share your story, therapy makes healing & recovery possible.
Whether you’ve tried therapy in the past or this is your first time, I will create a safe space for you to explore even the most challenging feelings without fear of judgment or shame. I have experience working with clients of various backgrounds who are dealing with issues such as grief, loss and anger, substance abuse, trauma (sexual, physical & emotional abuse), abandonment/ attachment issues, anxiety, depression, and family conflicts.
