Are You Struggling After a Trauma?

Most people will experience a trauma during their lifetime. Examples of traumas include witnessing a death, becoming severely injured, or surviving a sexual assault. While most people can recover from trauma on their own, some people experience long-lasting distress, a sign of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

How to Recover Following a Trauma

Our professional staff and clinicians have extensive experience in working with patients who have a history of trauma. We are sensitive to the unique needs and experiences of people who have been through a trauma — or multiple traumas. We even offer a specialty trauma track to help people recover from PTSD.

When you enter trauma treatment with an experienced professional, you may experience a number of benefits within a relatively short time frame. After several trauma treatment sessions, you may notice:

  • Less bodily/physical tension
  • Less reactivity to traumatic memories or triggers
  • Stronger relationships
  • Greater connection and meaning
  • Increased joy and other positive emotions

Recovering from a trauma is very liberating and can lead to increased confidence and higher self-esteem. To learn more about trauma treatment at Pathlight, please call us at 1-877-715-1878. We offer free, confidential consultations with our team of Master’s-level clinicians.
