Trauma Healing Therapy
Therapy for Trauma in Dallas, TX
Something happened in your life. It wasn’t good. In fact, it was pretty scary. Maybe you have an abusive partner, experienced a natural disaster, been physically, mentally, or sexually assaulted, or grew up in a dysfunctional household. All of these situations can cause trauma symptoms.
But, here is the best part about bad experiences: they don’t need to define you. The anxiety, racing thoughts, or fear you may feel every day about your past can be treated. Although these things might stay with you as a part of your history, they don’t need to be at the forefront of your mind. You can take charge of your mental health. In time, you can begin to feel better with help from an experienced, people-friendly therapist.
Signs and Symptoms of Trauma
Trauma symptoms can show up as cognitive, emotional, and physical distress. These symptoms can include:
- stomach aches
- difficulty sleeping or nightmares
- panic/anxiety, lethargy
- heightened startle response
- difficulty concentrating
You don’t want to live with overwhelming PTSD symptoms every day. Without treatment, you may struggle to think straight, your relationships may suffer, and you’re at a higher risk for substance abuse and depression. It is crucial to recognize the negative feelings and stressful thoughts in order to find an effective coping strategy.
