The way trauma and PTSD affect an individual’s life differs from person to person and situation to situation. Dr. Olga Vera assesses each client to determine the best course of treatment drawing from her vast experience utilizing a variety of therapeutic modalities including EMDR, CBT, DBT, Hakomi and mindfulness practices.
Trauma and PTSD are mental health disorders, which can be overcome and eased by working with a qualified and nurturing clinician like Dr. Vera. Sexual abuse, death, war, domestic violence, bullying, crime, divorce and medial issues are just a few examples of traumatic events which can deeply affect one’s life. The feeling of re-experiencing the event, nightmares, anxiety, self-injury, suicidal thoughts and endless mind-chatter are amongst behaviors associated trauma.
