What is PTSD?
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is generally defined as a disorder originating from experiencing a dangerous or shocking event. Sometimes immediately and sometimes months later, a person will still experience trauma from the experience. What is most important to note is that Joel Kuppersmith Ph.D., our psychologist in Huntington, can help manage and potentially put an end to your PTSD.
If you believe you or a loved one may be experiencing PTSD, some symptoms may include:
In order to be diagnosed, you must experience these symptoms for at least one month.
After a full evaluation, our psychologist in Huntington will decide what he thinks the best treatment plan is for you. Psychotherapy, also known as “talk” therapy, is usually a good treatment option for those who are suffering from PTSD. This form of treatment can help you rationalize what happened and help you have closure with the event. If you or a loved one are experiencing PTSD, do not hesitate to contact our psychologist in Huntington today!
