I am aware that we are all on our own journeys and there is no, one size fits all approach to therapy. Lets explore your individual needs!
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.
Being human is often tough. Sometimes we lose our way and can feel stuck and overwhelmed. Sometimes we would like to change parts of our lives or ourselves but don’t know how. Therapy can be an empowering way to promote healing, growth, and wellness. Often, we initially seek treatment to address a specific concern and then begin to uncover other areas of our lives in which we want to make meaningful change. My goal is for this process to feel supportive, affirming, and appropriately challenging.
You worry you aren’t doing things right and you’re burdened with challenges that keep you stuck. As this overwhelm grows bigger it's hard to be your authentic self, act upon your gifts, and form meaningful relationships. You shy away from taking risks and you're nervous to be real with others. Let's discover together how to reconnect with your values and reclaim the life you want to live.
Are you stuck in a cycle of thought patterns or behaviors that are harming your well-being? Do you feel anxious, ashamed, disconnected, or depressed, and wish you could break away from these patterns? Do you find yourself daydreaming about what life would be like if you weren’t so caught up in this struggle? Many people are struggling to manage their relationships, careers, and lives during these uncertain times. You are not alone, and I am here to help.
