PTSD & Victims of Crime
After a traumatic event, triggers can throw your body and mind back to the terrifying event.
Let me teach you tools to better adjust and cope.
I am an approved Tricare out-of-network provider and have worked extensively with military veterans and their families who are struggling with PTSD. According to the Mayo Clinic, Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that’s triggered by a terrifying event — either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event. .
Most people who go through traumatic events have temporary difficulty adjusting and coping, but with time and good self-care, they usually get better. If the symptoms get worse, last for months or even years, and interfere with your day-to-day functioning, you may have PTSD. Getting effective treatment after PTSD symptoms develop can be critical to reduce symptoms and improve function.
