Prolonged Exposure (PE)

PE is designed to treat PTSD and trauma-related disorders. Treatment involves a weekly or twice weekly appointment for an average of 14 sessions, in which you will share about detailed memories of past traumatic events and work towards reducing avoidant behaviors that are diminishing quality of life. PE involves processing trauma in an adaptive manner through exposure therapy techniques. Examples of past trauma may include "complex" trauma in which the person has experienced chronic, persistent traumatic events over a long period of time, including severe invalidation, emotional abuse or neglect.
