Cognitive-behavior therapy and exposure therapy are the preferred modes of treatment for PTSD. In Cognitive-behavior therapy your therapist helps you understand and change the way you think, feel and behave in response to your traumatic experience. You will learn how to identify problematic thoughts about yourself and the world that are making you fearful and have resulted in you withdrawing from previously enjoyable activities. With the help of your therapist, you will learn how to replace these thoughts with less distressing ones and behave in effective and self-fulfilling ways. Exposure therapy is an important part of CBT. In exposure therapy the goal is to confront your fears. Your therapist will help you to stop avoiding those thoughts, feelings and situations that have caused you so much distress. Exposure therapy may involve simply discussing your concerns in detail. By talking about your trauma in-depth and frequently with a therapist, you will learn how to control these unwanted thoughts and feelings. You learn to stop fearing your past. This may be hard at first; it might be difficult to intentionally confront and deal with painful thoughts and feelings. Your therapist will guide you through this process.

    POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY INSTITUTE FOR EMERGING ADULTSOffers support to help emerging adults live the BEST-life-possible The vision of this clinic is to be a different kind of clinic. One that goes beyond helping emerging adults cope with stress, anxiety, and depression. One that teaches emerging adults how to create lives filled with positive emotions, engagement, deep, intimate, caring relationships, meaning, and accomplishment. A clinic that helps people identify, pursue, and achieve their personal and professional dreams. A clinic that creates a community of kind, compassionate, generous, and loving people who are dedicated to helping others thrive. A clinic that provides cutting-edge workshops and trainings to students, professionals, and outside agencies. A clinic that helps emerging adults live with passion and purpose. Positive clinical psychology uses empirically supported strengths-based strategies that help emerging adults not just survive – but thrive! When successful, people leave traditional therapy feeling less anxious, depressed, stressed, or angry. In short, they feel less "bad." But positive clinical psychology, based on the science of positive psychology, emphasizes that just because we experience fewer negative emotions and behaviors doesn't mean we’re flourishing. Therefore, beyond teaching people how to better cope with and manage their difficulties, therapists teach emerging adults the skills to experience lives filled with joy, gratitude, hope, love, and happiness. Nearly 25% of emerging adults are "rudderless." They want to succeed. But, many spend more time and energy going faster instead of changing course to align with their mission. Emerging adults are finding it more difficult today than ever to identify their strengths and learn how to use them in service to others. Being generous with one's skills and talents not only improves our communities and society, but it also provides engagement with the world and a deep, enduring sense of purpose. At the Positive Psychology Institute for Emerging Adults, therapists help young adults improve their lives, whether they are struggling with a particular issue or looking for ways to thrive. The clinic offers Individual Counseling for Young Adults and Group Counseling Services. Call To speak with a staff member who can help determine if the Institute would be appropriate for helping you live a life filled with passion and purpose. The fee is $30 per session, including the intake. All therapy services are by appointment only. All services are provided in a professional manner and conform to the ethical standards of the American Psychological Association.
