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.

I am very happy to offer my highest recommendations for a therapist working with the community at Thriveworks. Here is an example of what it is like to be in Linda Armendariz’s care. We had a family session with Linda. She spoke with each of us beforehand, to have a clear understanding of what each person hoped to accomplish. She was a calming presence throughout our session, gently bringing us back to the issues we wanted to address and helping us hear what was being said. Our common goal was to really understand each other and to be heard. As parents we wanted to support our adult son without enabling him, showing high expectations with a lot of warmth. We were mostly struggling with boundaries, which was confusing to him. In the end we came to a very clear and actionable plan with goals and dates. We each had assignments that we could accomplish. It was agreed that we would work together, openly. We agreed to communicate as a group moving forward. Respect has been key. Linda models what she says. She is intuitive and to the point, so time is used wisely. I believe that anyone who gets to work with Linda will grow steadily!
