Post-traumatic Stress Disorder Counseling in Maumelle, AR–Counselors and Therapists

Have you ever watched a really scary movie, and afterwards felt extremely jumpy?  A knock on the door, a creak in your floor—everything seems a little bit louder, more intense.  Imagine experiencing this feeling all the time: a never-ending constant state of fear.  That feeling is often what someone suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) experiences daily.

“Trauma creates change you don’t choose.  Healing creates change you do choose.” –Michele Rosenthal

At Thriveworks Maumelle, we know that living with PTSD can be a challenging feat.  We have therapists that want to work with those suffering in order to help them manage this difficult mental illness.  Our PTSD therapists are willing to assist people in order to process what has happened to them and allow them to feel safe again.

Post-traumatic Stress Disorder: Signs and Symptoms

PTSD is a mental health condition that can arise after experiencing a traumatic event.  Symptoms of PTSD can vary depending on the person suffering through it.  However, symptoms typically include:

  • Hypervigilance
  • Mood changes
  • Loss of concentration
  • Flashbacks
  • Fear
  • Severe anxiety
  • Social isolation
  • Unwanted thoughts
  • Insomnia and other sleep disruptions

Symptoms don’t necessarily surface the day after an event takes place, instead it can take days, months, or years for symptoms to surface, which makes battling this illness a tough fight.

Risk factors for PTSD

When thinking about PTSD, many people associate it with war veterans, and although many of them do suffer from this condition, there is a wide scope of individuals affected by the illness.  Some might include:

  • Victims of physical or sexual assault
  • Firefighters
  • Police officers
  • ER doctors
  • Individuals diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.

These are only some of the examples of people who have heavy exposure to potential distress.  If you feel like you have lived through or witnessed a traumatic event and it has left you feeling fearful and damaged, help is out there.  

Healing and Treatment for PTSD

PTSD can be “wishy-washy” in terms of when and where symptoms arise—every person affected has a different experience. That said, the severity and frequency of these occurrences tend to do with how the PTSD is treated. Normally, a multiple approach method works best.  Medications can be used to manage the symptoms associated with PTSD and is helpful with getting fear and anxiety under control.  Many people choose to join a support group, and some even benefit from exercise.

PTSD has the ability to make one feel detached from friends and loved ones, and these are two ways to connect with others.  Traditional counseling is one of the best ways those struggling with PTSD gain insight into how they developed PTSD and ways to cope with the triggers in everyday life.  Therapy is influential in overcoming PTSD and setting someone on the road to recovery.

Better than I imagined!!!

I cannot say enough good about this place. They honestly do strive to get you in to see a practitioner quickly. And the importance of being seen soon to someone who is at a bad psychological point cannot be understated. It can, literally, mean the difference between life and death. After years of no longer being able to trust mental health providers due to so much misdiagnosis I reached out to Thriveworks. I asked for a particular practitioner, and they had me in to see her the following day. Kristy's approach was welcoming, empathetic, friendly, and down-to-earth. She did not speak down to me as a patient, but she made a comfortable effort to connect from the beginning. Gaining my trust over several weeks she was able to start showing me some things no one ever took the time to extract. She found me at the precipice of a terrible situation and worked me back from the ledge. Her input to Zack, along with his personable and empathetic personality, finally got me on medications that actually have improved my situation more than I could have ever imagined. The combination of her therapy and the medications have me, for the first time in decades, recognizing a hope for the future. All I can say is if you are that person who has lost hope and feels as though you have no purpose, let the Thriveworks team have a chance to show you a you even you didn't know existed. Without hyperbole I can honestly say I owe my life going forward to Kristy and Zack.

After working with Zack for a year I would say that he is very dependable and does show concern for his patients. There is never any problem with following hospital policy. Always a good man to have on your team.

Zack’s Great

Zacks a wonderful guy to see. He really listens to all your concerns and explains your treatment options in detail. Anyone that sees him is going to feel comfortable talking to him and not have that feeling as if your talking to a stranger.

I've dealt with severe anxiety and depression for as long as I can remember, and have seen multiple providers to try and get control of my emotions. I thought I was a lost cause until I found Zack. He was the first "medicine guy" that I met with that actually got me! He has a calming demeanor and had me very comfortable from the very first appointment. He's easy to work with and actually cares about how I'm feeling! Seeing Zack was the best decision I could have made. Now I'm feeling much better and finally feel like I can breathe. Thank you Zack and Thriveworks for all you do!
