Combat trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) are a normal person’s response to completely abnormal situations. These responses can lock a person in trauma for decades. During this trauma, the brain becomes hijacked and the normal processes of dealing with memories and events are disrupted.
Spanish River Counseling Center offers therapists who specialize in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) treatment, including an experienced, licensed, and certified Army Ranger to treat veterans suffering with PTSD. We use up to date, evidence-based modalities of care that work. We have seen the wounds of PTSD heal.
The veteran’s spouse, children, and other loved ones may experience what is referred to as secondary PTSD – a normal response of those near to a PTSD sufferer – and may benefit from counseling support as well.
