"Do you experience intense anxiety, unwanted negative thoughts, panic attacks, low self esteem, nightmares or sleep issues? Do you feel alone, controlled by a certain person, or afraid of going various places? If yes, please consider that I may be able to help. Recovery from trauma can seem like a daunting prospect. Many people assume there must be something wrong with them since they are still experiencing distress, but the good news is that your reactions often make a lot of sense, and symptoms of PTSD are some of the most treatable issues in mental health today."
