PTSD Therapy for Adults in Vancouver, Wa
Counseling for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health problem that some people develop after experiencing or witnessing a life-threatening event, like combat, natural disaster, car accident, or sexual assault.
Everyone reacts differently to trauma, and for some the experience of trauma develops into PTSD. Post-traumatic stress disorder has a deep impact on a person’s life, mentally, physically and emotionally. For those that experience traumatic stress, there is help.
Our counselors’ can help you learn skills to understand how the trauma has changed your thoughts and feelings. Changing how you think about the trauma can change how you feel. This will help you get more control over your thoughts and feelings about the trauma.
Our Counselor’s Will:
Provide active listening
Be empathetic and understanding to assist in your healing and recovery

Teach coping skills or techniques to assist in day-to-day management of PTSD symptoms
