PTSD AND TRAUMA THERAPY IN BROOKLYN HEIGHTS
Most of us have experienced trauma. The therapists at Flourish Psychology can use a trauma-informed therapy approach to help you overcome negative memories and the way they affect you.
The body holds trauma and increases our stress reaction. Therefore, trauma can make you feel stuck. Survival of trauma can cause a negative mood and anxiety. It can also cause nightmares and flashbacks related to negative events. Trauma can also cause you to avoid people, places, or thoughts in order to help you feel safe.
Trauma experiences can also affect the way we interpret events and handle emotions. The way we coped with trauma in the past can affect the way we handle current situations that have nothing to do with the original experience. Therefore, we might react poorly in the present due to ways we needed to behave to survive in the past.
The therapists at Flourish Psychology will help you feel safe as you work through trauma experiences. They will be on your side to support you and to help you heal. They will help you cope and then thrive.
