A  traumatic  life  event  includes  the  experience  or  witnessing  of  psychological,  sexual,  physical or
emotional abuse.Symptoms that may result from a traumatic experience include:

  • Heightened anxiety/arousal
  • Insomnia
  • Poor concentration
  • Excessive guilt and shame
  • Avoidance of people and places associated with the event
  • Depression/low self-esteem
  • Flashbacks or repeated distressing thoughts of the event

As these symptoms persist the consequences can affect our professional and personal lives and relationships, impair
our functioning and general well-being, and prevent us from leading full, healthy lives and achieving our goals.

At IntrinPsych Woman we treat trauma using a combination of techniques including Trauma Focused Behavior Therapy,
traditional Psychodynamic “talk therapy.” and EMDR.

Your therapist will work with you to develop a treatment plan that effectively meets your individual needs and works at
a pace that feels comfortable, treating both the immediate symptoms and also the underlying issues associated with
the trauma.
