Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a debilitating condition that follows a terrifying event.  People who have PTSD often have one or more of the following symptoms:

___ Painful images, memories, or thoughts of the event

___ Distressing dreams of the event

___Times in which you feel as though you are reliving

      the event

___ Being upset by something that reminded you of the

      event

___ Avoiding thoughts, feelings, people, or places that

      remind you of the event

___ Not being able to recall important parts of the event

___ Feeling distant or cut off from other people

___ Inability to access feelings of sadness or joy.

___ Trouble falling asleep or staying asleep

___ Difficulty concentrating

___ Being hyper-vigilant or easily startled

Remember, only a qualified therapist or doctor can actually diagnose you with PTSD. Studies have shown that a technique called Eye Movement Densensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) can be very effective in reducing distressing symptoms related to PTSD.  For some, relief can be achieved within a few sessions.  There is more information about how EMDR works in the "Services" section of this website.  If you suspect that you have PTSD and would like to determine if you are a good candidate for EMDR, contact Christy at (214) 699 7762.
