Counseling For Trauma

Counseling Services for Trauma

Trauma symptoms are very treatable, and we provide several treatments supported by research to be highly effective, including:
 

  • EMDR (Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)

  • CPT (Cognitive Processing Therapy)

  • PE (Prolonged Exposure) 

  • CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy).

Trauma can occur as a result of any of these:

  1. experiencing any type of harm (or threat of harm) to you

  2. witnessing harm to someone else

  3. learning harm has occured to someone close to you

Your therapist will start by gathering background information about you and the reason you are seeking treatment. This information helps your therapist understand your unique circumstances, establish a diagnosis, and set goals for therapy. One of the most well-known diagnoses for trauma symptoms is Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). But, there are other diagnoses that can result from a traumatic event beside PTSD, including Unspecified Trauma- and Stressor-Related Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder, and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. The diagnosis is important as it provides a snapshot of what your symptoms are and guides treatment.
