At Recreate Life Counseling Services, we believe in the importance of providing trauma therapy for our clients struggling with past trauma and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD is a condition in which an individual experiences intense stress or anxiety after witnessing or being engaged in a traumatic event. PTSD can cause intense anxiety, intrusive memories, and flashbacks that may interfere with daily life and lead to feelings of hopelessness.
Many who struggle with PTSD turn to drugs and alcohol as a way to numb their pain and ease their symptoms. When substances are used to deal with PTSD symptoms, the symptoms of both the PTSD and substance abuse only become more severe. The symptoms of PTSD can be temporarily “managed” with substance abuse, but these methods of self-medication only work for a short time. It is not long before the individual starts to develop negative consequences due to the concurrent trauma and addiction.
At Recreate Life Counseling Services, our expert trauma therapist is certified in several forms of trauma therapy, including hypnotherapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Rapid Trauma Resolution. Our trauma therapist has extensive success with treating clients struggling with trauma and substance abuse. She not only instills in our clients a sense of hope, but also the skills necessary to achieve success in their everyday lives.
Many PTSD sufferers find that hypnotherapy is beneficial for their recovery. The goal of hypnotherapy is to unlock stored emotion so that the trauma can be revisited and explored from a different perspective.
EMDR is a comprehensive, integrated treatment approach to addressing PTSD and other trauma-related issues. Recreate is proud to offer this innovative and effective therapy from a certified EMDR therapist. With EMDR, the client focuses on any past traumatic events, current situations that cause distress, and developing coping skills for the future.
Rapid Trauma Resolution is a therapeutic approach that quickly and painlessly eliminates the effects of trauma using dynamic multilevel communication. It utilizes different tools such as stories and guided symbolic imagery to resolve the root causes of traumatic issues.
