Quintessential HealthClinical Psychologist, Psy.D.
A core value of Quintessential Health is to provide treatment services to our clients in an exceptional, yet affordable manner.
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.
My hope is to build a compassionate and brave space with you, so that you can feel safe sharing and exploring your story. Our work together will not only uncover the barriers to the growth and fulfillment that you deserve, but moreso help you experience hope and healing through healthier relationships with self and others.
Our feelings are valuable guides which give us important information. The ways in which we ignore or deny parts of ourselves contribute to disconnection from self and others. My hope is to join you with compassion, curiosity, hope and humor in coming home to yourself and in creating space that empowers trust, healing and a meaningful path forward.
Have you realized that certain painful patterns keep repeating in your relationships and your life, but you aren't sure how to go about changing them? Often, knowing what needs to change and actually enacting change can feel really daunting. I get it, and that's where I come in. I work with clients who are motivated to make deep, lasting, transformational shifts in their lives. Therapy helps you to understand and heal old patterns so that you can move toward the life you really want.
