Psychotherapy is also frequently offered at our clinic to assist individuals in coping with psychological trauma or a Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Psychological trauma can be devastating and debilitating.

The goal is to neutralize the stress reaction and relieve symptoms of psychological trauma.
