Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can occur after experiencing or witnessing one or several traumatic events. It often goes undiagnosed and there is a common misconception that it only occurs in military personal. Some of the traumatic events known to lead to PTSD are:
- Violent/sexual attacks
- Terrorist attacks
- Military experience
- Childhood neglect or trauma
PTSD can often present itself physically; some of these symptoms can include panic attacks, flashbacks, and hyper-vigilance. I believe by working with you to develop coping strategies to soothe and improve the physical symptoms of PTSD, we can begin to explore the underlying concerns.
