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.
We treat this disorder by helping the individual get in touch with and “working through” those painful unconscious feelings. To do this, we 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.
We help the individual connect appropriately with these feelings and help them appropriately release these feelings and thoughts that were previously being avoided.
