We use current useful trends and evidenced based practices in psychotherapy to work with PTSD and CPTSD. We specialize in trauma created by sexual, physical, emotional, and other abuses, some of which occurred in childhood. There is no simple explanation for anxiety, depression, impulsiveness, eating disorders, addictions, etc. These problems are and were caused and we help people overcome these problems and get on with their lives. We remove the past trauma part from their memories, develop coping skills, and help to develop awareness of their dysfunctional thinking, and sometimes improper behaviors.
Childhood trauma is a part of life where we didn’t know how to cope because of lack of being taught healthy living skills. When we combine our inability to cope at a early age with a traumatic incident (abuse), we begin to grieve but we don’t know how to get past it, so we stay emotionally stuck in depression. We also grieve the loss of our future, because we don’t know how to get past loss of it.
There is ample evidence to indicate that psychotherapy can work more effectively, and last longer than medication. Medication might be considered a temporary state of relief while a person learns how to cope with problems or effectively deal with them; some psychiatrists might say from two weeks to three months but many might also say, medications are highly addictive past this point.
Many people indicate some of their personality difficulties appear repetitive in that similar issues are repeating within their lives in different contexts and relationships. Underlying problems can be alcohol, pharmaceutical drugs or recreational, different forms of sexual problems; internet porn, sex addiction, social media, and video gaming. Psychotherapy helps people to achieve change of long-standing patterns of thinking and behavior.
Some consider themselves to be floundering, or stuck. We find many people that are stuck are just too busy surviving and lose their way in life, career, and relationships through tragedies, and life problems.
We use many different types of therapy; Psychotherapy (not talk therapy), Hypnotherapy, Art Therapy, Neuro-Lingusitic Programming, Eye Movement Integration Therapy, etc. A person does not have to reveal an embarrassing past and we use a process to open up long term memory, alter it or remove the invasive portion and reconsolidate the altered portion into long term memory.
