“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”

HEAL THE BRAIN. 
HEAL THE HEART.

We know that the trauma from an event can linger and haunt you, and you desperately want it to stop. The stress and freight, even when you’re not in danger, is constant. We understand, and we have a treatment option that can help.

If difficulties began after you experienced an event that threatened the life or safety of you or others close to you, you may have been told you have Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a disorder that develops in some people who have experienced a shocking, scary, or dangerous event. Not everyone with PTSD has been through a dangerous event. Some experiences, like the sudden, unexpected death of a loved one, can also cause PTSD.

Children and teens can have extreme reactions to trauma, but some of their symptoms may not be the same as adults.

“Some days the memories still knock the wind out of me.”

PTSD symptoms change the way you see yourself, your life, and the people in your life. It gives you a lens for an experience that colors everything in a negative way and even affects how you think.
