Trauma Therapy

“Trauma creates change that you don’t choose. Healing is about creating change you do choose.” — Michell Rosenthal

Trauma is a unique emotional response to a deeply distressing event that can affect a person’s ability to cope and function in their day-to-day life. A traumatic event can occur in a person’s life unexpectedly. When you are unable to process an overwhelming experience, the mind records, and stores that trauma for later processing. Without seeking trauma therapy in San Francisco, trauma can impair your self-concept and ability to form healthy relationships.

Feeling Good Wellness Center is here to assist you in your journey to healing. Dr. Katie Dashtban is a psychologist and trauma specialist who has helped patients survive traumatic experiences and rebuild their lives. Through our one-on-one virtual trauma therapy counseling via private video call, you can feel safe, secure, and whole again.

Trauma and PTSD Therapists in San Francisco Bay Area

“People start to heal the moment they feel heard.” — Cheryl Richardson

Feel heard and acknowledged whatever traumatic experience you are going through. We understand that patients may feel at a loss as to how to process and heal from a traumatic experience. Our PTSD counselors use a highly structured emotional and intellectual approach that will allow you to cope with stressful situations in your journey to healing.

We use TEAM CBT, a state-of-the-art scientific and highly effective psychotherapy based on the research of Dr. David Burns, M.D, professor emeritus of psychiatry at Stanford School of Medicine and author of several best sellers, the most recent of which is Feeling Great. TEAM is an acronym and it stands for:

  • Testing – We track your progress every session by the use of a self-administered Brief Mood Survey. We also assess your evaluation of the therapy session on each encounter to assure that high quality services and utmost empathy has been provided to you.
  • Empathy – We use effective communication techniques to understand your presenting problems and empathize with your experiences.
  • Assessment of Resistance – Using therapeutic techniques, we identify and understand the issues that hinder your recovery.
  • Methods – With the help of over 100 proven techniques, we help you overcome your problems.

Benefits of Seeking Online Trauma Therapy

Since a traumatic experience can instill fear in a person’s life, some may not want to leave the safety of the home. Online trauma therapy is proven to be as effective as face-to-face therapy.

  • Less Intimidating – Feeling safe is important to many post-traumatic stress disorder patients. Unlike in-person therapy, talking to a licensed psychologist online is less intimidating as it allows you to talk in a place where you feel most comfortable and safe—in your home. Also, it eliminates the awkward waiting room experience, so you do not have to feel anxious around other patients.
  • Less Time-Consuming – With online therapy, you do not have to drive to and from the psychologist’s clinic. Choosing online sessions will allow you to fit them into a busy schedule. It also saves you time traveling from your home or office to see your therapist. Also, online therapy sessions allow you to work with your psychologist from anywhere in the world without having to interrupt your therapy sessions.
  • More Consistent Therapy – Busy work schedules, poor weather conditions, illness, and lack of transportation can prevent you from seeing your therapist in person. Online trauma therapy sessions enable you to attend your appointments regularly. Consistent therapy helps you quickly learn the techniques to heal from the impact of trauma, forgive yourself and others, make better choices, and build better relationships.
