Why Customized PTSD Treatment is Important

Why Customized PTSD Treatment is Important

Trauma causes lasting psychological reactions. Many people who have experienced chronic or acute trauma in the past continue to experience post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) for years afterward.

PTSD destabilizes your mental health, and makes it challenging to move forward into a better future. If you have PTSD, you may notice symptoms such as anxiety, flashbacks, or feelings of intrusive guilt or shame, among other complex reactions.

Because PTSD can arise from so many types of traumatic experience, and because PTSD symptoms can vary so much from patient to patient, the team at Nugent Family Counseling Center, under the leadership of Dr. Geoff Nugent, relies on a customized treatment approach when dealing with this type of mental health counseling.

With personalized, one-on-one connection to a provider at our San Jose and Santa Clara, California, and Reno, Nevada, locations, you can complete your journey toward healing after trauma. Here’s what you should know about the benefits of a customized treatment approach.
