Advice & Tips: If you have PTSD, it's very important to have a therapist who is up-to-date on the latest and most effective therapies. If not treated properly, it can worsen your PTSD in the long run. Having found a fantastic trauma therapist improved my life 100%. It took two years of VERY hard work on my part, but to finally have relief made it worth every minute. I feel SO much better. Also, major life events (like getting cancer again) can trigger a PTSD flare. It helps to be aware of how you are feeling... and to get help right away. The flare can be tamped down.
Cost: Not specified monthly
