Research shows that women are twice as likely to develop posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), endure longer periods of posttraumatic symptoms, and are more sensitive to sensory stimuli that remind them of the trauma. That said, many survivors of trauma, men and women, hesitate to seek mental health treatment and wait years before seeking help, or they never go for treatment at all.
The mental and physical symptoms of trauma and posttraumatic stress can have a debilitating affect on your life. I work with women (and men) who have survived traumatic events in their lives, but find their lives turned upside down by severe symptoms including: nightmares, insomnia, poor physical health, difficulty with intimate relationships, fear, anxiety, anger, shame, aggression, suicidal behaviors, loss of trust, and isolation. Treatment interventions that I use and find very effective are mind-body approaches ( please see the About page).
