Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder at Star Point Counseling Center

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder


Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a disorder that develops in some people who have experienced a shocking, scary, or dangerous event. At Star Point Counseling Center in Tampa and Brandon, FL we can help treat this disorder.

It is natural to feel afraid during and after a traumatic situation. Fear triggers many split-second changes in the body to help defend against danger or to avoid it. This “fight-or-flight” response is a typical reaction meant to protect a person from harm. Nearly everyone will experience a range of reactions after trauma, yet most people recover from initial symptoms naturally. Those who continue to experience problems may be diagnosed with PTSD. People who have PTSD may feel stressed or frightened, even when they are not in danger. Starpoint Counseling Center can help treat this disorder.
