Trauma & PTSD counseling can help you recover from past traumatic experiences

When someone experiences trauma, it doesn’t just go away. Oftentimes trauma can manifest itself through PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). If you think you are experiencing PTSD, you are not alone. Millions of Americans experience PTSD each year. 

With PTSD, the memory of trauma can make it difficult for you to move on peacefully with your life. There are many issues that could lead to trauma or PTSD, such as domestic violence, sexual assault, loss of a loved one, childhood neglect, or witnessing a terrible event. 

When someone has difficulty recovering from traumatic experiences they may experience anxiety, fear, disturbing thoughts, or nightmares. No one should have to experience these disturbances in their everyday lives.

Trauma and PTSD may also impact your closest relationships. You may have emotional outbursts, feel angry, sad, or in denial. Treatment for trauma and PTSD can help you live more fully in the present with the people you love. 

At Oregon Counseling, our compassionate therapists will listen to your story to better understand how trauma has impacted your life. Our therapists will be there as you explore your trauma, come to accept it and heal from it.

Another method we sometimes use for trauma and PTSD treatment is EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing). EMDR can help you see disturbing material in a less distressing way. Ultimately, Oregon Counseling’s goal is to help you work through and heal from your trauma so that you can live a more peaceful, fulfilling life.
