Revive Wellness Therapy - Conshohocken Counseling

Trauma can affect individuals in many different ways. Some common reactions to trauma experiences include the following:

  • Persistent, unwanted thoughts
  • Heightened anxiety and hypervigilance
  • Depression
  • Difficulty trusting others and/or maintaining relationships
  • Physical re-experiencing of trauma memories
  • Low self-worth
  • Increased substance use
  • Feelings of guilt and shame
  • Sleeping difficulties
  • Mood changes
  • Avoidance of people and places

Prolonged Exposure Therapy for PTSD is a trauma-informed and evidence-based treatment. We provide a safe and compassionate environment to explore trauma memories and allow space for healing. Clients can expect to feel safe and validated while processing their trauma and exploring how their experiences have impacted their emotional, social, physical, and behavioral well-being. Together we will gain insight into your experience and its impact, process your emotions, and learn coping skills for you to use outside of therapy. Whether you have experienced trauma recently or very in early childhood, there is hope for a satisfying life.
