Trauma Work – Trauma can be a single terrifying event – a single IED attack or firefight during combat, sexual or other physical assault, a house fire, or an auto accident, just to name a few. Or trauma can be a history of repeated injury – childhood abuse, domestic violence, recurring military stressors. Whether isolated or recurrent, trauma can leave lasting emotional, behavioral, and interpersonal problems. I specialize in working with people who suffer with these sorts of post-trauma difficulties.
It’s not always PTSD – Post-trauma symptoms are sometimes severe enough for a diagnosis of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). At other times symptoms may not arise to the level of PTSD, but still cause significant impairment and distress. Either way, treatment can bring significant healing and relief. The memory of the trauma can stop running your life.
General Psychology – In addition to Trauma Work, I also provide therapy for a broad range of emotional issues whether or not they result from having been traumatized:
- Behavioral Problems
- Interpersonal functioning
- Relationship issues
- Family Problems
