    Therapy for PTSD Denver, CO

    Have you experienced a traumatic event? Are you suffering from lingering fear and anxiety? Do you feel like you no longer have any control over how you think, feel, and behave? 

    Posttraumatic stress disorder—also known as PTSD—is a mental health challenge that may occur in individuals who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event such as a natural disaster, a terrorist act, an act of war, a serious accident, rape, or any other violent personal assault. 

    It is believed that PTSD affects nearly four percent of the U.S. adult population. While it is usually linked with veterans who’ve experienced combat, PTSD occurs in all people regardless of age, race, nationality, or culture. In fact, women are twice as likely to experience PTSD than men.  

    PTSD can have a profound impact on an individual’s life, affecting their mental, emotional, and physical well-being. At Sylvie Point Counseling, our team recognizes the importance of providing specialized therapy for PTSD and we help clients in Denver, Colorado, navigate the challenges of living with this condition. 

    What are the Symptoms of PTSD? 

    People with PTSD often experience intense thoughts and feelings related to their traumatic experiences. These can last for a long time after the initial event. Many people with PTSD also relive the event through flashbacks and nightmares. 

    People with PTSD often feel intense emotions such as fear, anger, sadness, and detachment from friends, family, and community members. They often avoid people and situations that remind them of the traumatic event. Ordinary sounds or incidents such as a door banging or accidental touch in a crowd may cause a strong and uncontrollable reaction.

    Our therapy for PTSD is rooted in compassion and understanding. We provide a safe and supportive environment where clients can explore their experiences, process their emotions, and begin their journey toward healing.

In addition to addressing the symptoms of PTSD, we also focus on building resilience, developing healthy coping mechanisms, and improving overall well-being. Our goal is to empower clients to reclaim their lives and move forward with confidence and strength. 

    How Can Treatment Help? 

    There are a variety of treatments that can be used to treat PTSD. However, there are three specific techniques that are consistently gaining research-based evidence of their effectiveness in successfully treating PTSD. 

    • Cognitive Processing Therapy – This modality focuses on how a person perceives a traumatic event and processes it. A therapist can help their client work through stuck points, which are certain thoughts related to the trauma that prevent the person from recovering.  
    • EMDR – EMDR stands for eye movement desensitization and reprocessing. This technique uses bilateral sensory input such as side-to-side eye movements to stimulate the brain to process difficult thoughts, memories, and emotions. 
    • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) – CBT is a form of talk therapy that focuses on how thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are related to one another. The goal of a CBT therapist is to help a client with PTSD return to a place of hope with a greater sense of being in control of their thoughts and behaviors.
