Trauma and PTSD Therapy

Have you experienced a traumatic event such as a physical or sexual assault, domestic violence, catastrophic accident, active military service, or sudden loss of a loved one? These events affect our emotions, feelings, and behaviors in negative ways that often surprise us.

Unfortunately, many events and sensations in the world can retrigger this trauma. These reactions and the situations that cause them are often unpredictable and can create severe interferences in your quality of life.  

Thankfully, trauma doesn’t have to rule your life anymore. Dr. Joseph Kirkpatrick has successfully helped countless people resolve trauma and restore balance and harmony to their lives.

How Do Trauma and PTSD Work?

Experiencing a traumatic event leaves a lasting impression on the mind. Unfortunately, the deeper part of our mind continues to respond as if the event is still occurring, even though it is in the past. 

These responses often manifest themselves in the form of anxiety, depression, self-destructive behavior, panic attacks, rage, and addictions.  Unfortunately, many people do not seek help for their trauma because they think they will have to relive the traumatic experience as a part of the process.

However, you don’t have to relive your traumatic experience to escape its long-term effects. Dr. Kirkpatrick’s trauma therapy relies on Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT), Mindfulness, and Hypnotherapy, because these Counseling Interventions can resolve negative emotions, and destructive behaviors without requiring the traumatized individual to relive the pain of the actual event.

RRT works by accessing the subconscious mind to separate the memories of the traumatic event from the emotions that come with it. As a result, a trauma victim can often eliminate or reduce triggers and problematic symptoms in a short amount of time. 

Essentially, you can resolve your trauma without reliving it, and Dr. Kirkpatrick would be thrilled to help you take back the happiness that you deserve.

Are Trauma and Addiction Connected?

Millions of Americans suffer from addiction and substance dependence. Addiction continues to be heavily stigmatized and often criminalized despite current research showing that it is often influenced by numerous mental and psychological problems, including trauma. For this reason, addiction treatment has advanced significantly over the past 20 years to treat the underlying causes such as trauma, anxiety, depression and many other disorders.
