Trauma & PTSD Counseling San Antonio
At Balanced Counseling of San Antonio we recognize that PTSD affects many people and that struggling through it alone is difficult. We want to let you know that you don’t need to suffer alone and we are here to help. PTSD can occur at any age and is associated with direct exposure to trauma. Symptoms of PTSD usually begin within three months after experiencing or being exposed to a traumatic event.
Trauma is an emotional response to a disturbing situation like military combat, rape, assault, or natural disaster. We all react differently to situations depending on a number of varying factors such as personal history, personality and environmental conditioning.
Following a traumatic event, shock, fear and denial are typical. Longer-term reactions may include unpredictable emotions, physical symptoms and flashbacks.
