Psychotherapy for Trauma & PTSD
Traumatic events are deeply distressing or disturbing experiences that affect the whole body. However, everyone responds uniquely to trauma. Many people who experience trauma in childhood may not recognize or understand what’s happened-even in adulthood. It’s common to have an immediate or delayed response to trauma with cognitive, emotional, physical and behavioral symptoms.
