PTSD in Austin, TX

Just like an injury can leave physical scars, traumatic events sometimes have effects on our mental health that last for months, years, or even the rest of our lives. In some cases, a person might develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This chronic mental health condition can occur as a result of exposure to violence, sexual or domestic abuse, or life-threatening situations, manifesting in symptoms, such as anxiety, reckless behavior, insomnia, depression, and more. In addition to your mental well-being, PTSD can affect your relationships, focus, and ability to get through the day. If you believe you're experiencing symptoms related to post-traumatic stress, we encourage you to contact Mynd Works Psychiatry to arrange a psychiatric assessment so we can help you diagnose and manage your condition. Whether you live in the Austin, TX area or anywhere around the state, our team can help you with a personalized PTSD treatment plan. Don't allow the past to define your future.

PTSD occurs as a response to trauma so the symptoms you experience may not be the same as another person's. Some of the more common symptoms of PTSD include:

  • Unwanted memories brought on by reminders of trauma
  • Intrusive, negative thoughts
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Withdrawing from friends and loved ones
  • A feeling that you always need to be "on guard" for danger

The symptoms of PTSD can range in intensity based on your trauma and triggers, which is why a mental health assessment is a necessary step in managing them. Following your appointment, our team at Mynd Works Psychiatry can review your symptoms and help you come up with a management plan.

Kathie is amazing. She has changed my world. It is so validating to have a brain map that shows me I don't have a character flaw, that I have a brain based disorder, that should be treated like any disorder, for example diabetes. She has found the right meds for me and I know my life is going to change once I start on the treatment.

Good initial consult! Answered my questions and gave my followup information for treatment. Very helpful when moving back to Texas and needing to find a provider this month.

Straight to the point and didn’t make me feel invalidated about my experiences. 10/10

Kathie has really helped me feel like me again. She is kind and patient and doesn't give up even when it's tough.

K. ZocDoc

Kathie is a great listener, she's very personable, and she worked hard to find the best help for me. She was very thorough in asking about my history and symptoms before determining a path forward, and along the way has provided in-depth, careful check-ins to find what has worked and what hasn't. She has also provided very helpful counseling and referrals for other resources.
