Treatment for PTSD
Many people suffering from PTSD fail to seek treatment because of misidentifying or failing to recognize their symptoms as trauma-related. They may also not realize that their PTSD is treatable. Additionally, it can be challenging for victims of trauma to come forward and seek help as those who have gone through a traumatic event may feel shame, guilt, fear, or mistrust.
At Lifeskills we help our clients heal from the emotional and mental traumas that prevent them from moving forward. We help clients resume functioning as they did before the trauma and to move past issues surrounding the trauma.
Our Trauma Treatment Pathway helps clients process their past traumas so they can progress through recovery. The Trauma Treatment Pathway includes cognitive processing therapy (CPT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), seeking safety, and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).
