Post-Tramautic Stress Disorder affects millions of Americans each year
Traumas come in all shapes and sizes, from car accidents to sexual assault, domestic violence, being attacked, witnessing a terrible event and experiencing a natural disaster.
When you suffer from Post-Tramautic Stress Disorder (PTSD), the memory of that trauma continues to haunt you: no matter how hard you try to “move on.”
Research has shown that the nature and severity of the trauma is directly correlated to whether you develop PTSD. The more intense the trauma, the more likely you are to develop symptoms. That said, PTSD can stem from a trauma of any size, so the sooner you can begin PTSD treatment, the better.
What are the symptoms of PTSD?
PTSD manifests itself in many ways. If you have experienced a traumatic event, ask yourself if any of these symptoms resonate with you.
- Flashbacks – do you find yourself reliving the event?
- Emotional detachment – have you become more distant, especially towards loved ones?
- Jumpiness – are you more easily startled
Even if you said “no” to all three, it’s still a good idea to discuss the traumatic event with a trained and compassionate expert. By booking a free consultation, we can determine if PTSD treatment is right for you.
What is a typical PTSD treatment?
At Well Clinic, our compassionate therapists may use a variety of integrated techniques in your PTSD treatment. One highly successful technique is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which teaches you to change the thoughts that cause you stress.
Another PTSD therapy method is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), which encourages you to focus on various distractions while remembering and talking about the traumatic event.

I absolutely love Well Clinic! From the beginning, my husband and I felt like we were in a comfortable and safe space.
Our couple’s therapy bridged gaps in our relationship and helped us understand each other that much more.
Well Clinic is an oasis, especially for busy professionals like me.
It’s a relaxing and safe space, nothing like the stuffy or drab offices you’d expect when going to a therapist.
Well Clinic’s inviting and professional design makes me feel comfortable and at ease, which probably benefits the work I am doing.
In fact, it doesn’t really feel like a therapy clinic at all, which I find awesome.
