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.

Chris at Thrive Works saved my life. I started at the beginning of the pandemic, by phone, and I didn’t think therapy by phone would have the impact that it did. But I tried for my kids, my marriage, and myself. I can’t say enough good things about Chris. Thank you for everything, and for literally saving my life. I wouldn’t be alive without his counsel.

Jakob Rosenthal is the best therapist I've ever encountered! He gets to the bottom line quickly and kindly, and helps me to understand as well as helps me to have healthy coping mechanisms. I am a better person for having seen him.

Initially I saw Jacob for my intake appointment and felt he was really great. I was placed with Kate Kelly and overall she is fabulous. She has helped me live to my full potential. She has helped me sort out my PTSD with childhood and adult trauma, as well as being a great resource for addiction counseling. She was also extremely helpful to point me in the right direction on how to deal with (or escape from) toxic family members. She was also a really great help to me during grief and loss of a loved one. I feel so much better than I did before going to Thriveworks. I'm in a great place now and will be back in the future. I can't thank you enough.

Jacob has helped me much more than any therapist I've ever seen. His skill, insight, and kindness are truly outstanding. Jacob has helped me change my life so that my depression is no longer in charge. His approach is very direct - which may not be for everyone but was perfect for me - but he always acts and speaks with sincere compassion. Thank you, Jacob, you have helped heal me at a level I thought was impossible. Also, Jennifer has always been super wonderful and responsive withheduling and questions. She goes above and beyond to be helpful and kind. Thanks Jennifer! You're awesome.
