Overcome PTSD: Break Free from the Past’s Grip

Welcome to Blackbird Behavioral, where I, Meg Wallis, a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor, am here to help you overcome your most difficult emotions and struggles. Facing these challenges with a stranger can be daunting, which is why I strive to keep it simple and meet you where you are at.

I firmly believe that true change must come from within, and in order to achieve that change, we sometimes need to confront the pain that underlies our most challenging behaviors. This is especially true for individuals who are dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Understanding PTSD

PTSD is a mental health condition that can develop after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. It is not uncommon for individuals with PTSD to struggle with intrusive thoughts, nightmares, and intense emotions related to the traumatic event. These symptoms can significantly impact daily life, relationships, and overall well-being.

At Blackbird Behavioral, I specialize in helping individuals break free from the grip of their past and overcome PTSD. Through a combination of evidence-based therapies, compassionate support, and personalized treatment plans, I work with my clients to navigate the healing journey.

Breaking Free from the Past

Overcoming PTSD requires courage, resilience, and a commitment to self-care. Together, we will explore various therapeutic techniques to help you process your traumatic experiences, challenge negative thought patterns, and develop healthy coping mechanisms.

One of the approaches I often utilize is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT focuses on identifying and changing negative thought patterns and behaviors that contribute to distress. By replacing these patterns with healthier alternatives, we can work towards reducing the impact of PTSD symptoms in your daily life.

In addition to CBT, I also incorporate Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. EMDR is particularly effective in helping individuals process and heal from traumatic experiences. Through a series of guided eye movements or other forms of bilateral stimulation, we can help your brain reprocess traumatic memories in a safe and controlled environment.

A Safe and Supportive Environment

At Blackbird Behavioral, you can expect a safe and supportive environment where your experiences are validated and respected. I understand that each person's journey is unique, and I am committed to tailoring our sessions to meet your specific needs.

As an independent clinical social worker and certified drug and alcohol counselor, I bring a holistic approach to therapy. I recognize that substance abuse can often co-occur with PTSD, and I am equipped to address both issues simultaneously, providing comprehensive care that addresses the root causes of your struggles.

If you are ready to break free from the grip of your past and overcome PTSD, I invite you to take the first step towards healing. Contact me today to schedule a consultation and begin your journey towards a brighter future.

Remember, true change comes from within, and with the right support, you can overcome even the most challenging of emotions and struggles. Together, let's navigate the path to healing and reclaim your life.

I look forward to walking alongside you on your journey.
