Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a condition that involves persistent emotional and psychological stress that occurs as a result of severe physical or psychological injury or shock. It can also result from experiencing or witnessing a very traumatic event.
I treat this disorder by helping the individual get in touch with and “working through” those painful unconscious feelings. To do this, I will assist the individual recognize the defense mechanisms that they use to avoid the painful feelings that they have suppressed in their unconscious mind stemming from a traumatic experience.
I help the individual connect appropriately with these feelings and help them appropriately release these feelings and thoughts that were previously being avoided.
