Conditions Treated

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can affect anyone and at any age, and it is the result of experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. While most people are familiar with PTSD as a result of exposure combat, it is a mental health condition that can also result from physical or sexual violence, an accident, or an adverse childhood experience. The symptoms and effects of PTSD look different for everyone, and the therapists at Mind and Body help patients with post traumatic stress disorder heal from their trauma through personalized, multi-tiered counseling and treatment.

Symptoms resulting from PTSD can begin as early as weeks after a traumatizing event, but they may also remain dormant for years before surfacing. The impacts of this mental health condition may negatively impact sleep, jobs and relationships, and it’s also a leading cause of suicide or suicidal thoughts. For these reasons, seeking professional help as soon as possible is crucial to help you heal and learn effective coping skills that will improve your quality of life.

How do I know I may have PTSD?

While the symptoms from PTSD can vary in intensity over time, we can generally match symptoms into four categories:

  • Intrusive memories or thoughts
  • Avoidance of certain triggers like people or places
  • Negative changes in thoughts or mood
  • Changes to physical or emotional reactions
