Trauma & Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Treatment 

Have you experienced a traumatic event that has left you struggling? You're not alone. One-half of all individuals will be exposed to a traumatic event in their lifetime and out of those people women are more than twice as likely to develop PTSD.

 

If you've experienced a potentially life-threatening event such as  . . .

  • physical, psychological, or sexual abuse

  • physical assault or rape

  • domestic violence

  • witnessing violence against others

  • death of a loved one

  • a terminal diagnosis

  • serious accident

  • war

  • a natural disaster   

. . . then you have likely been traumatized and may find it difficult to lead a normal life. Often, trauma leaves us feeling unsafe in everyday situations and uncomfortable in our own bodies.

Trauma therapy at HerTime involves working collaboratively with a trained trauma therapist to:

  • Evaluate your current level of distress

  • Identify triggers

  • Learn how to self regulate and cope

  • Tell your story and process the trauma 

  • Let go of painful memories

  • Desensitize yourself to triggers and learn to remain in an emotionally regulated state 

  • Find meaning in your experience 

  • Restore your relationships

  • Develop long-lasting resilience and sustainable self-care practices

In addition to high rates of PTSD, women are also more likely to react more strongly to triggers that serve as reminders of the traumatic event. Triggering moments paired with the typical symptoms of traumatic stress including nightmares, insomnia, somatic disturbances, difficulty with intimate relationships, fear, anxiety, anger, shame, aggression, suicidal behaviors, loss of trust, and/or isolation can make each day difficult.

 

If you're experiencing these symptoms and feel stuck or hopeless, you're in the right place.
