PTSD Counseling in Orlando Uses Therapy with Ties to USF Studies
By Space Coast Daily // January 24, 2018
Millions of Americans suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and central Floridians are no exception. With a heart of compassion for those struggling with trauma, Sarah O’Hern, a mental health counselor in Orlando, took it upon herself to learn several forms of therapy for PTSD, including Accelerated Resolution Therapy and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR)
“ART may help you overcome and eventually remove many of the triggers that lead to stressful and depressing mental reactions,” O’Hern said. “Therapy involves patient eye movement coinciding with verbal description of the traumatic incident. As a trained specialist in ART, I guide clients through the eye movement path. ART methods originated from scientific research studies conducted by the University of South Florida.”
In recent years, many organizations have led campaigns to raise awareness about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and its impact on military veterans returning from war. In addition to our military servicemen and servicewomen, millions of Americans struggle to recover from non-war-related trauma ranging from assault or abuse to other terrifying events that may unfold in every day life, such as car accidents or shocking news about a friend or family member.
