About

NOW ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. Let's talk about trauma. How common is it? The National Center on PTSD estimates 60% of men and 50% of women will experience at least one trauma in their lifetime. Experiencing trauma isn't a rare event, it can happen to anyone. Common reactions to traumatic experiences include feeling detached or numb, feeling on guard, experiencing nightmares or unwanted thoughts about the trauma, and going out of your way to avoid reminders of the event. If you’ve been through something in your past, and you can’t seem to escape it in the present, you have the power to stop it from disrupting your future.
No matter when your trauma occurred, it’s never too late to seek help. Trauma-focused therapy works, and many clients report feeling better in as few as 5 appointments. Benefits of treatment include reduced trauma symptoms, better sleep, less depression, healthier habits, and an improved quality of life.
With online therapy sessions and flexible availability, going to therapy is easier than ever before. All you need to get started is a phone, laptop or tablet with the option to video chat. Visit http://lexcounseling.com or call 859-457-1262 to schedule your free, no-obligation, ten-minute phone consultation today.
