Conditions Treated

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) develops in people who have experienced a traumatic, scary or dangerous event. Events can be life threatening. Such as, soldiers who have gone in to battle. Other events such as the death of a loved one, being robbed, harmed or violated in any way can also trigger PTSD. Adults and children can both be affected by PTSD.

PTSD symptoms can include:

  • Behaviors, thoughts or actions that interfere with daily life or relationships
  • Physical symptoms such as racing heart, sweating, bed wetting
  • Frightening thoughts including nightmares or excessive worrying
  • Flashbacks, reliving the experience

Treatment for PTSD includes talk therapy, medication or a combination of both. Each case is different; therefore, each case will be evaluated and given a plan based on the circumstances.

At Union Square Practice, Kate Thacher, Psy.D., and Julia Vigna Bosson, Ph.D., have extensive experience working with individuals with PTSD. Some of the therapies they find effective are:

  • Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE)
  • Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
