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 enjoy working with emerging adults (18-29) and adults (30-65) who recognize they would like to make changes in their life due to stress, anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, grief, and trauma. Together we will actively collaborate to identify your strengths and challenges and your goals for treatment. We will develop a plan together to get you where you want to be in life.
Perhaps you have achieved highly or developed habits of perfectionism, and yet there is still something missing. You drive yourself hard, critique each move, but this never gets you any further. Maybe you win the affections of others and yet you still feel empty. If you feel stuck, I am here to help. Everyone needs an extra set of eyes once in a while! I am a psychologist with a specialty in treating high achieving adults with trauma/burnout and generalist training in depression/anxiety.
Are you feeling stuck or confused? Struggling with anxiety or depression? Do you find yourself going over certain events or conversations from the past? Are you losing sleep or struggling to focus? At some point, we all experience difficulties and unpleasant feelings and emotions in life. You can learn to navigate these and find relief.
Whether you realize it or not, just by being here and considering a therapist you have already begun a journey of change. Whether you have a specific life goal or hurdle you are working on or if you are struggling with things like depression, anxiety, trauma, anger, addiction, relationship issues, or career-related struggles, I would love to help.
