What is your go-to approach for PTSD/trauma therapy?

I view individual therapy for PTSD/trauma as a confidential safe space to explore oneself from a lens of validation and empathy to lead to organic problem-solving in areas that are no longer healthy for our development as whole human beings.

What tools do you teach in PTSD/trauma therapy?

I believe that self-awareness is our biggest skill and effective communication is our biggest tool. I focus on building self-esteem and self-confidence through empowerment, boundary-building, and conflict-resolution skills.

How do you know when a client is making meaningful progress in PTSD/trauma therapy?

The way I evaluate meaningful progress from a client is when they tell me this work is hard. Nothing worth doing comes easy or is changed in a few sessions. Our brains are lazy; working with a client through changing habits and thought processes takes time, exploration, and practice without judgment.

What can clients do in their personal time to supplement PTSD/trauma therapy?

My therapy sessions always end with homework, whether it's literal homework in terms of behavioral charts, for example, creative arts, or more existentially around thinking through concerts in between sessions. Therapeutic work, in my opinion, does not happen exclusively in the sessions, it happens outside of sessions. The therapeutic setting is meant to explore concepts on a deeper level to then make the next step of practicing those skills and concepts in between sessions.

What should someone do to prepare for starting PTSD/trauma therapy?

Making the initial step to set up the session is the most important and most empowering/strengths-based thing someone can do, albeit scary! To prepare for that first intake, remember, you're a rock star already.

Starting PTSD/trauma therapy

What is PTSD/trauma therapy?

At Thriveworks, PTSD/trauma therapy involves dedicated efforts to address and navigate through past and/or recent traumatic events. Therapists specializing in trauma create a secure environment to process and heal from these experiences, aiming to reduce trauma-related symptoms and enhance overall quality of life.

How does PTSD/trauma therapy work?

Our Thriveworks providers use PTSD/trauma therapy treatments like eye movement desensitization and reprocessing EMDR, CBT, and exposure therapy with the goal of helping clients process the traumatic events they have experienced so that they can to start feeling safe and secure again.

Symptoms of PTSD

The symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can vary but often include:

  • Flashbacks and distressing memories of the traumatic event
  • Nightmares and sleep disturbances
  • Intense anxiety and irritability
  • Avoidance of reminders of the trauma
  • Negative changes in mood and thought patterns
  • Increased arousal, like difficulty concentrating or exaggerated startle response

How do you overcome PTSD triggers?

The best way to overcome PTSD triggers is to seek the assistance of a professional therapist, such as those at Thriveworks, who can help you to understand and treat your PTSD triggers.

What type of therapist is best for PTSD?

In most cases, a therapist who specializes in PTSD/trauma therapy is the best type of mental health professional to address the symptoms of PTSD.

Is PTSD/trauma therapy conducted in person or online?

PTSD/trauma therapy at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long should you go to therapy for PTSD?

If a client is working through a single traumatic event that occurred as an adult, trauma or PTSD therapy may only take a few months, but in general, it can take a year or more to effectively treat trauma symptoms and PTSD. The duration of treatment is highly dependent on the client and the severity of their symptoms.

How successful is therapy for PTSD?

The success rate of therapy for PTSD depends entirely on the individual's symptoms, commitment to attending sessions, and personal abilities.
