Youth Trauma Services

Helping children and teens recover from traumatic experiences

The team at Peak Wellness Center has special expertise in helping young people recover from the trauma of violence, crime or abuse that they have experienced or witnessed.

The members of our youth trauma care team, specially trained in both early trauma intervention and treating Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in children and teens, use proven methods in a safe therapy environment to help people cope with and recover from traumatic experiences.

These include

  • Psychiatric evaluation
  • Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Medication therapy, if indicated
  • Behavioral modification
  • Meditation and stress management techniques

We work to identify and address any internal or external obstacles to recovery and teach new skills for

  • Reducing flashbacks and distressing memories
  • Handling intense emotions and emotional triggers
  • Communicating about the experience
  • Reducing behavioral problems and other symptoms of distress

Family counseling and support groups

Parents and siblings also suffer when a child has a traumatic experience, often experiencing intense anger, sleeplessness, fear, anxiety, sadness and uncertainty about the best way to help. Family counseling and individual counseling can make a big difference in helping people understand, cope with and get past the experience.

It gets easier—and we help make sure it does

Let us help your child and family start the recovery process today.
