Veterans and PTSD

We owe our freedom to the women and men who have served in our military. Unfortunately, serving on the front lines or state-side can have unwanted consequences, including difficulty readjusting to civilian life or even Post-traumatic Stress Disorder. PTSD in veterans is all too common, and many veterans feel uncomfortable or find it difficult to get services from the VA. To make matters worse, there can be a waiting list for those who seek help from the VA.

At Birmingham Anxiety and Trauma Therapy, we provide PTSD therapy to help with the shortage of services to veterans. We consider it a privilege to work with veterans and their families, and have developed an understanding of the unique struggles associated with military service. We DO NOT take a “one size fits all” approach to treatment. Instead, we have a variety of options for treatment – and we don’t believe that treatment needs to be re-traumatizing! We will work together to find the best approach for you, and continue to assess that your therapy is where you want it to be. We work for you in your therapy!

PTSD Counseling

Some of the many approaches we have used in the treatment for veterans with PTSD include:

  • Relaxation and Guided Imagery
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Meditation
  • Internal Family Systems
  • Breathing Techniques
  • Self-Awareness and Grounding
  • Self-Expression
  • Feelings Identification
  • Stress Inoculation Therapy
  • Referral sources for appropriate medication stabilization

We consider it a privilege to work with veterans and their families
