Mental Therapy and Counseling near Tampa, FL

Do you or someone you love struggle with a trauma related issue?

Trauma related disorders such as PTSD, are psychological conditions caused by an exposure to traumatic events that are outside the normal range of human experience.

Traumatic events can altar the foundation our mental health is built on and create a disconnect between our expectation of reality and reality itself. PTSD is no respecter of persons and can affect anyone no matter the race, sex or age.

Traumatic events that may trigger PTSD can include:

  • Combat experience
  • Natural disasters
  • Violent crime
  • Physical abuse
  • Rape and sexual abuse
  • Unexpected accidents
  • Witnessing a death
  • Childhood neglect
  • Other traumatic experiences

The real dangers of untreated PTSD

PTSD does not go away on its own. Those who do not find treatment for PTSD allow their condition to get worse. Individuals struggling with untreated PTSD are unable to control their thoughts, actions and behavior. The effects will increase until the victim no longer has control or can manage.

If left untreated, the effects of PTSD can lead to the following:

  • Drug Abuse
  • Alcoholism
  • Job loss
  • Self-destructive acts
  • Suicide
  • Phobias
  • Depression
  • Anxiety/Panic Attacks
  • Other psychiatric disorders
  • Divorce and relationship problems
  • Obsessive Complusive Behaviors

The effects of PTSD can cause someone to put him/herself in danger or even endanger others including his/her family members. Untreated PTSD can cause permanent damage to the brain due to the person living in a hyper-aroused state.
