Trauma / PTSD Therapy

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) represents the mind and body’s reaction to encountering or witnessing a traumatic, horrifying, or highly distressing event. Such events may include natural disasters, severe accidents, physical or sexual assault, or observing a death.

PTSD symptoms can also arise from experiences that don’t involve a direct threat to life or physical harm, such as childhood neglect, living in poverty, enduring an abusive relationship, coping with divorce or a breakup, grieving the loss of a loved one, or uncovering a partner’s infidelity.

These intense events can be so overpowering that the mind struggles to completely process them when they occur, which may lead to the development of posttraumatic stress symptoms. At SolutionFirst Therapy, we are committed to supporting individuals in overcoming these challenges and finding healing.

Typical Symptoms of Trauma:

  • Experiencing nightmares related to the event
  • Enduring flashbacks that make you feel as though you’re reliving the trauma
  • Feeling overwhelmed by symptoms when reminded of the event by people, places, or anniversaries
  • Emotionally shutting down or avoiding situations that trigger memories of the traumatic event
  • Experiencing guilt for surviving or struggling to connect with others who haven’t faced similar situations
  • Feeling hypervigilant, irritable, easily startled, and having difficulty falling or staying asleep
  • Sensing a disconnection from reality, as if living in a dream or feeling that you or the world around you aren’t real anymore
