PTSD

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a type of anxiety disorder that is initiated by a traumatic and terrifying event.  While most people who experience a traumatic event (such as abuse, sexual assault, violence, war or the threat of physical harm or death) do not develop PTSD, some may find they are feeling scared or stressed even when they’re no longer in danger.  People suffering from PTSD may experience upsetting recurring flashbacks of the event and bad dreams. They may have trouble sleeping and feel emotionally numb, tense, or anxious. Feelings of depression and a lack of interest in life are also common. Women are more likely than men to experience PTSD and the disorder can happen at any age. If you or someone you know is experiencing the symptoms of PTSD for more than a month after the triggering event, seeking treatment from a mental health professional can be very beneficial.

Local Experts in PTSD

Many people experiences life events that impact them physically and emotionally. A person may find themselves fearful, unexpectedly remembering a past event, difficulty going places, and many more experiences. I work with people to regain a sense of safety and, if appropriate, use my training in trauma processing to decrease how symptoms impact your daily life.

I have been trained in trauma-informed care and in many ways of viewing trauma, including the neurobiology of trauma, relational and intergenerational impact of trauma, and of the mental health and behavioral struggles caused by traumatic experiences. I have worked with children and adults in multiple settings and have unique view on how trauma shapes our development at different stages of life.

Matt Martin, a licensed counselor on our team, uses EMDR for trauma treatment. Ttherapy work will target key events that have disrupted your life or left you feeling stuck. EMDR activates your brain's natural need for positive resolution. You can transform the negative impact of the past to perceive yourself in positive new ways that will facilitate a sense of liberation and growth.

It is easy to underestimate how debilitating it is to live with PTSD. I believe it is important to focus on developing the ability to self-regulate through understanding the effects of trauma on the brain and body. My goal is for you to feel more connected to yourself and others, and to feel worthy of living a full and meaningful life.

I have a strong interest in serving individuals who are troubled by PTSD. I have received over 500 hours of advanced training in this area, and am trained in EMDR, which is the treatment of choice for trauma.

Trauma impacts many of our lives. Most of us can identify turning points where we felt something change in our lives. I have a variety of approaches that help get to a place of healing. I am trained in EMDR, yoga and am nationally certified in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

I work with adults living with the long term effects of traumatic abuse and neglect such as chronic anxiety, hypervigilance, difficulty with trust, and impulsivity. I specialize in clients who grew up in environments unable to meet their emotional and relational needs, such as Adult Children of Alcoholics and Adult Children of people with personality disorders and other severe mental illnesses.

Your feeling of safety is paramount. We will move at a pace that is right for you to first find safety, and then reprocess traumatic memories that are affecting your life. I am fully basic trained in EMDR. Come in to see if we are a good fit and to learn more about how we can find relief for you.

Post-traumatic stress disorder is generally considered to stem from a single identifiable event. Complex trauma – including developmental trauma, attachment trauma, Disorders of Extreme Stress (DESNOS) – develops as a result of prolonged or ongoing interpersonal trauma.

PTSD can happen from a variety of adverse childhood and adult experiences. This can occur from physical, sexual, and emotional abuse as well as chronic poverty, oppression, addiction or growing up with a mentally ill or addicted parent. Complex PTSD occurs when we experienced more than one trauma (such as in the case of chronic childhood abuse).

I have specialized training in the treatment of trauma, using both cognitive behavioral approaches and interpersonal neurobiology. I have worked with traumatized people for over 10 years.

So much of life is overwhelming and scary, and there is so much pressure to \'get better\' and \'move on.\' I can work with you to notice how previous scary experiences might still be affecting you, ranging from noticing that your needs as a child went unmet in subtle, chronic ways, to processing acute fear from distinct events in your life.

I am trained in EMDR, which research has shown is the best treatment for treating trauma and PTSD. Neuroscience also shows that somatic and mindfulness practices can help decrease anxiety symptoms associated with PTSD

Most of my continuing education has focused on trauma treatment, including PTSD and other trauma-related symptoms. I have experience working with acute, complex/developmental, and historical trauma. I strive to promote safety and a slow pace in our sessions to prevent your system becoming overwhelmed by re-experiencing traumatic events, and developing your capacity and presence to move forward.

I have worked long-term with clients who experience complex PTSD and have seen significant results in an increased sense of safety, self-esteem, self-regulation, and freedom from internalized oppression. My framework includes historical trauma and systemic oppression as sources of trauma and opportunities for cultural and personal healing.

I work with clients dealing with all types of traumatic experiences from a relational and trauma focused lens. Together we work on reconnecting mind and body and developing useful coping skills. I work to empower my clients and believe each and every person is capable of healing.

I specialize in working with the body and mind to heal trauma. Using various tools, we can de-code the nervous system's language so that you can understand better the ways to support your healing. Post-Traumatic Stress is something that can be very daunting, but can definitely transform to allow for resiliency and growth.

PTSD- Research has shown treatment success for PTSD using EMDR. I have training and experience in S.A.F. E. EMDR treatment. This type of EMDR uses a Somatic (understanding your body's voice) and Attachment (understanding how you stay safe and connected in relationship) focus to treat PTSD with Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing.This therapy enables traumatic memory to find resolution.

I have direct experience working with folks with PTSD from historical trauma, systems trauma, and trauma from oppression.

PTSD is one of my specialties due to my experience working with clients who struggle with PTSD and/or Complex Trauma. PTSD is also one of my specialties due to additional graduate level trauma classes I have taken, training in counseling sex trafficking survivors, and my focus researching trauma throughout both undergrad, graduate school, and currently post-grad.

Experiences of trauma include childhood abuse or neglect, abandonment, betrayal, acute traumatic experiences, or any experience that currently impacts your ability to function fully.

I specialize in trauma-informed services and have studied and implemented these practices even before completing graduate school. EMDR and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (somatic mindfulness) were both designed for this purpose and work well for the mental and physical release of trauma in a gentle, effective manner.

I have worked with individuals with developmental and acute trauma and have been trained in/utilized EMDR to provide healing from trauma response (known as PTSD).

We know a lot more than we did only decades ago about how trauma is stored in the brain and body, about how it is activated by present experiences, and how to effectively process and integrate traumatic memories. I utilize EMDR, somatic techniques and Interpersonal Neurobiology to assist clients with trauma.

I am fully trained in EMDR (Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). EMDR is an effective approach for shifting core negative beliefs about self and freeing you from effects of past trauma, whether it be single incident or complex PTSD. \nMy primary therapy focus the past 3 years has been trauma/PTSD.

Supporting clients in making new meaning from previous traumatic stressors and learning coping skills for managing intrusive thoughts and feelings.

My first exposure to working with individuals with PTSD was a research study for my Masters Thesis on the effectiveness of equine facilitated psychotherapy as a treatment for PTSD. The majority of individuals in my practice have been affected by trauma either directly or via individuals close to them. I continue to stay up to date with training on innovations in trauma treatment.

I have worked intensively for several years to identify and treat the many symptoms and effects of trauma. My training includes a year-long DBT intensive at the Portland DBT Institute, and completion of Level 1 Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (Level 2 to complete in 2019). Both are proven cutting-edge approaches for successfully treating PTSD and chronic complex childhood trauma.

Trained extensively in trauma treatment, I am skilled in understanding the symptoms, the presentation of complex trauma and attachment wounds, and ways to integrate healing into your daily life. I take a somatic and narrative approach to healing including the most recent research related to activation, dissociation, and brain regulation.

Surviving trauma is one thing; living the life you deserve after trauma is another. It takes a compassionate, centered, experienced clinician to guide you through that tough terrain. I help trauma survivors understand the past and develop coping skills to live life on today's terms.

Many people have undergone trauma and don't realize its impact on their lives because they were taught to minimize its harm. PTSD symptoms can include fearfulness, worry, interpersonal conflict, self-loathing, addiction and shame. These overwhelming symptoms impact relationships and professional goals. Let me help you get to the bottom of what you have experienced so you can feel more free.

I treat various forms of trauma in my practice and am a certified EMDR therapist.

Through my work at veterans hospitals, I have gained experience and skill at treating PTSD. This includes not only combat trauma, but military sexual trauma, childhood trauma/abuse, and the combination thereof. PTSD treatment can involve processing feelings about past trauma, understanding how trauma affects your thinking and relationships, and developing new ways to feel safe and empowered.

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder caused by severe trauma. This trauma could have been anything from a car accident to experiencing combat. This trauma has rewired your brain to where you are always on the lookout for things to go wrong. Therapy can help the individual suffering from PTSD by helping them through some of their emotions and thoughts.

I specialize in trauma work with teenagers and children. I was trained in trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy by the University of Washington and have been practicing it under supervision with my young clients for over three years with good outcomes. It generally requires 8-12 sessions of therapy depending on the trauma severity, life circumstances, and personality of the youth.

Many people attend therapy due to unresolved hurts and wounds from traumatic events in their lives. I support people in healing past hurts through a variety of talk therapies, and also body-centric modalities to deeply effect change and help people move on to find joy and balance in their lives.

Trauma impacts so much! It is useful to raise understanding of how trauma reacts in the body and brain and what trauma-related beliefs you might have developed. I'm trained in Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET), which helps process trauma, build more context around your trauma history, and empower you to change your narrative.

I primarily work with people who may not recognize trauma in their history, but were impacted on a foundational level from chronic invalidating or neglectful experiences growing up. The ripples this has into adulthood are vast and I offer long-term work to heal wounds that prevented the development of identity, healthy self-esteem, and a trust in oneself and others to meet one\'s needs.

Often the experience you are having with your mental health can be rooted in past or current trauma. Looking at how to reframe those experiences either with cognitive based trauma work or EMDR can aid in releiving the intensity of the trauma.

Trauma can show up in people\'s lives in many ways that feel extremely distressing and disruptive. Sometimes that trauma is associated with military service, other times it is more relational. Often, it is a combination of events and inner experiences. My philosophy is that all trauma is valid and you can expect to experience very intentional care and a slow pace in addressing it with me.
