Trauma and PTSD

At On Your Mind Counseling, we treat trauma and clients with PTSD with the utmost care. 

Trauma and PTSD could come from a number of events. Things such as sexual assault, physical and emotional abuse, and other life-threatening events could lead to developed trauma, which could become PTSD. 

Suffering from trauma is common, and according to the VA, “6 of every 10 men (or 60%), and 5 of every 10 women (or 50%) experience at least one trauma in their lives.” Everyone deals with trauma differently. Some successfully cope with it. Others need help. But needing help doesn’t make you a bad or weak person. It takes courage to seek help, and you’ve already taken a step toward recovery by researching trauma.

Contact us at 615-499-6899 or at for help with your anxiety and depression. We can diagnose these conditions, and related conditions, and get you started with treatment.

Do You Have Unresolved Trauma or PTSD

It’s possible to suffer from trauma or PTSD without realizing it. Think about the following symptoms of trauma and see if they apply to you:

Do you have painful flashbacks?
Do you feel on edge, like something bad will happen?
You dislike certain sounds, smells, or images as they remind you of a painful (physical or verbal) event.
Have you had an out-of-body experience?
You always look for threats.
You assess things with the worst-case scenario often.
You become paralyzed with fear.

The symptoms of trauma and PTSD vary, and this list may not cover your symptoms, so the best thing to do would be to come in for an appointment to be diagnosed.

Who Needs Trauma or PTSD Treatment?

Trauma and PTSD affect every age group. There’s no shame in suffering from it, whether the person is a child, teen, or adult. 

Anybody can get help from trauma and PTSD therapy. Together, we’ll help you feel in control of your life again. You’ll learn to improve your relationships with yourself and others.

How Does Trauma Therapy Work?

Trauma can warp a person’s perceptions about themselves, people, and the world. One way we take power away from trauma is by using CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy). Using it, we will have you re-evaluate harmful thinking patterns and assumptions, which are also called distortions. In doing this, we’ll redefine the trauma.

REBT For Trauma and PTSD

Another therapeutic approach we use is REBT (Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy). At the speed and comfort of your choosing, we’ll work together to recognize what happened in the traumatic event to help you come to terms with it. In doing this, you’ll be given the freedom to choose what you do with your life now by letting go of the past. 

What Makes Our Therapy Different

We want to make you better. Meeting you weekly will be our pleasure, but ultimately, we want to give you tools to free you from your trauma. It is our goal that you’ll walk away from our trauma and PTSD treatment feeling better than you did before.

It’s time for a change.
