Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Trauma is an emotional response to an event that can lead to disconnection from self, others, and the world around us. At Connected Therapy, we have skilled therapists ready to help you get back on the path that leads to reconnection.
Being able to feel safe with other people is the single most important aspect of mental health; Safe connections are fundamental to meaningful and satisfying lives.

A traumatic incident can occur in many forms, such as bullying, community violence, complex trauma, disasters, early childhood trauma, intimate partner violence, medical trauma, physical abuse, refugee trauma, sexual abuse, sex trafficking, terrorism and violence, complicated grief, and more. If something has happened to you that felt emotionally traumatic, you may be at risk for trauma-related symptoms. Whether the event was a single incident, chronic, or complex, it can cause emotionally and physically debilitating effects.
