Revolutionary

in the treatment of

TRAUMA

Trauma Therapy & PTSD Therapy

You've had a traumatic event. It could have been recent or years in the past. It could have been a single event or multiple events over years.  You have tried many things to move past it, but it hasn't worked. Memories, negative thoughts and beliefs still remain.  You are stuck. Your relationships, work performance, family and friendship are suffering. Sleep is difficult if it comes at all, you are startled by noises or reminders, you feel reactive and uneasy most all the time. Sometimes it feels like depression, other times anxiety or panic.  You have tried counseling, talking to your religious leader, friends, Doctors, drugs and/or alcohol, prescriptions, relationships, distractions- now you don't know what else to do.  Is it PTSD, Acute Anxiety, a Panic Disorder or something else?

 

You have come to the right place.  We can help you- its our speciality.  Our mission is to provide our clients comprehensive, effective, evidenced based and holistic Mental Health Therapy for transformative healing from the effects of Trauma while promoting the health of the client without regard to race, religion, disability, national origin, sexual identity or gender. 

Goal​s
  • To provide effective & efficient behavioral health services.

  • To refer to other competent providers when necessary to address client needs.

  • To advocate for the rights and needs of individuals with behavioral health issues.

What You Need to Know Before Choosing a Therapist?

  • What is your first impression? Your ability to connect to your therapist is essential to successful treatment.

 

  • Can they articulate to you their treatment specialities?  Can they explain your treatment options and offer these for your treatment?
