PTSD Counseling Albuquerque

Providing Counseling for People Coping with PTSD

PTSD Counseling

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) has become the center stage for mental health. As the tragedies for many veterans continue to play out post-war, the education and research regarding PTSD have recognized the varied events, encounters, experiences, and responses in which PTSD can have multiple types of individuals. Especially now, more than ever, the social exposure to violence, aggression, volatility, oppression, disasters, etc., in our lives leaves us in a vulnerable and chronic state of trauma exposure. Sometimes, recognizing the impacts of such exposure can be hard to identify until it is too late.

PTSD COPING SKILLS

We help you win back that appreciation and tackle your condition in a way that ends the suffering, ends the reminders, and brings you back into your life with the lust for living and not a constant overshadowing fear of what surrounds you and your haunting past. We also know that PTSD is as far from clear-cut and straightforward as you’re going to get in terms of mental disorders. PTSD shattered your mind and broke in uniquely. Mending it – helping you pick up the pieces and put it back together on your terms – requires a deeper understanding of precisely what you’re dealing with here.

The Symptoms of PTSD

Post-traumatic stress disorder is a selection of symptoms that revolve around reliving and constantly facing the event itself.

You will experience symptoms of avoidance, intrusive or unwanted memories and thoughts, and negative thinking, such as:

  • Flashbacks

  • Nightmares

  • Insomnia

  • Anxiety/Triggers

  • Avoiding People and Places

  • Numbness

  • Loss of Interest

  • Depression
     

It is a long list of symptoms that could very well mean something else, but typically what highlights PTSD and sets it apart from other disorders is the constant presence and repeated reminder by your mind of the trauma that started all of this in the first place.
