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:

  • Bereavement
  • Miscarriage
  • 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.
