Many years ago, returning Veterans were diagnosed with "Shell Shock". Today we know the trauma of war can be diagnosed as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Not only can Veterans have PTSD, but children and partners of domestic abuse, accident victims, hospital workers, as well as Fire Fighters and Law Enforcement. We did not know that the Trauma can be activated by anything sensual. Things we see, taste, touch, hear, and smell can be triggers. This is why many Veterans do not like fireworks. Emergency workers may be triggered by the smell of gasoline, blood, or smoke. Songs, videos of traumatic incidents, certain foods can be triggers. As we learn more about Trauma and recovery, we have come to believe that the Trauma does not have to control our lives. There are many ways to heal the trauma and the following video gives insight as to taking the time to heal albeit in a therapist's office or on a long ride in the wilderness.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
I believe each person who enters my office has experienced pain, fear, and often trauma. As a result of these experiences, the individual may adopt flawed solutions to cope. These flawed solutions can manifest as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder and/or compulsive attachments with or without addiction.
During the therapy process, each person will be treated with respect and dignity to help them make the changes necessary to meet their therapy goals.
Creating a safe and confidential space for risk is essential in the therapeutic process. This will allow patients to confront their fear, pain, and trauma from the past, and develop new coping mechanisms that are not harmful to the patient or to others.
I believe in a holistic approach to therapy, and encourage all individuals to be aware not only of their emotional self, but their spiritual, and physical self. Often we deny our spirituality and allow our physical self to suffer along with our emotional suffering.
