Have you experienced an extremely stressful or traumatic event that has significantly changed your life? Are you more anxious or fearful than before? Do you find yourself unable to break away from negative or anxious thoughts? Do you feel jumpy, anxious, or on edge? Maybe you’ve found yourself being more argumentative or picking fights? If so, you may have Posttraumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD. We can help.
Neurocove Behavioral Health, LLC specializes in the treatment of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, also known as PTSD. While ~90% of adults in the United States will experience traumatic experiences at some point in their lives, somewhere between 13-15% will develop symptoms of PTSD. Much of the time, symptoms associated with PTSD resolve on their own within approximately 30 days.
These symptoms might include problems sleeping, anxiety, or feeling like the traumatic event is happening again. Generally, it’s difficult to tell who will or will not develop PTSD following traumatic events. The fact of the matter is, for a while, these symptoms are normal, adaptive responses. It is when these symptoms persist or worsen that we need to intervene.
Therapy for PTSD can take many different forms. The two primary frameworks used during therapy for PTSD are either cognitive or behavioral. Both have been shown to be remarkably effective in reducing the symptoms of PTSD and improving quality of life, and both can be conducted virtually or face-to-face.
