Conditions Treated

Trauma

Psychological trauma is commonly the result of an extremely distressing event such as a violent attack, accident, or injury. It can also be a result of disturbing on-going situations such as living amongst violence or with terminal illnesses. Trauma is different for each person; however, the end result is unwanted feelings often of helplessness, insecurity, and pain.

Some common feelings people suffering from trauma may experience include:

  • Fear/anxiety
  • Guilt/shame
  • Anger/rage
  • Sadness/hopelessness
  • Listless/numb

People often have physical symptoms as well, such as:

  • Sleep concerns: fatigue, insomnia, nightmares
  • Racing heartbeat
  • Difficulty breathing

Trauma can be overcome. At Union Square Practice, we have found that various therapies are effective at mitigating trauma symptoms. After completing an evaluation, we will recommend a treatment plan. Each case is different depending on the extenuating circumstances.
