I specialize in working with millennial professionals who look like they have their shit together, but are overwhelmed by anxiety.
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.
I work with folks who, formally or informally, support others and find themselves needing tools to care for themselves. Perhaps you are another mental health provider, a first responder, a guardian, a leader, a solid friend, or an advocate. You too may be experiencing past traumas and overwhelming stresses, unhelpful relational patterns, current unrealistic expectations of self, or feelings of anxiety and uncertainty. You too deserve a teammate on your adventure towards relief and joy.
