Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a debilitating mental condition that can completely derail your life. It manifests with disturbing thoughts related to a traumatic event that happened a while ago. Sometimes the wounds of the trauma are so deep that you find it hard to function, and this is where therapy can help.

A licensed PTSD therapist can help you heal from traumatic events and regain a sense of calm and ease. Wherever you are located in California from Alameda to Yucaipa or even Montclair, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Symptoms of PTSD

PTSD presents in different ways depending on the individual. If you’re suffering from PTSD, you may experience symptoms such as:

  • Intrusive memories that manifest as nightmares, realistic flashbacks, or reactions to anything that reminds you of the traumatic event.
  • Increased reactiveness to external situations.
  • Mood changes including emotional numbness, hopelessness, and pessimism.

If you are wondering if you have PTSD, read this article for more information about PTSD symptoms.
