PTSD Treatment in Austin, TexasPTSD Treatment

Lots of people are walking around with Post-traumatic Stress symptoms and don’t even know it.

PTSD is Easily Missed

You might think you are just anxious…or depressed…have ADHD…or maybe you have even been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. But the normal treatments haven’t worked or what was working didn’t stick.

Often, underneath the sad or the anxiety or the “can’t-sit-stills” is a history of trauma.

Do you avoid thinking or talking about certain things in your past? Are there big blanks in your memory? Do you startle easily, feel on edge all the time, and/or struggle with nightmares? If so, our PTSD counselors can help you better understand what is going on and how to heal.

Having PTSD is hard, but highly treatable. We can help.

Sexual Abuse and Sexual Assault Counseling

Sexual Assault Counseling in Round Rock, Texas

Sexual trauma can be hard to talk about. Even therapists sometimes avoid the topic. Hope For The Journey is different.


We know your story is difficult, but we are not afraid to go there with you.


Whether you are afraid to make the first phone call or are ready to jump right in, our therapists will go at your pace. We listen. We understand. We believe in you even when you have given up on yourself.

Some of our clients have been recently assaulted. For some, it was years ago. But for all, it was something that changed things.

Good counseling for sexual trauma helps you understand the big and little things that are controlling your beliefs and behaviors. Once you know what’s “driving the bus”, you can can unhook the negative and reclaim on the positive. Many of our clients are able to do this in as few as 8-12 sessions.

Help For Domestic Violence

Consider the following vignette…

Suzanne says hi to Zeke, and her boyfriend Joe gets mad because he’s told her he doesn’t like it when she talks to other men. Joe, who has his arm around her, squeezes her shoulder – hard. Suzanne tells Joe to stop because he is hurting her and Joe says, “Then maybe you should listen when I tell you something.” This is physical abuse.

Has something like this happened to you?

Physical abuse is only one of many ways to be hurt in a domestic violence relationship. You can also be controlled and abused sexually, financially, online, emotionally, verbally, and through stalking. It can happen in dating and marital relationships, both straight and gay. And it can be devastating.

Domestic Violence Counseling Heals

We help our clients to…

              • understand the dynamics in a toxic relationship
              • heal after something traumatic has occurred
              • feel understood
              • learn about healthy relationships so you can see it when you’re in it (and know when you are not)
              • feel empowered to take control of their future

What People Ask When Starting Counseling…


Why Do I Feel So Bad?

Anxiety and depression stick around because something is stuck. Sometimes that’s memories from the past that you haven’t fully worked through. Sometimes it’s because of the way you are approaching your pain. Counseling can be a great way to unravel what is holding you back from the life you want and deserve.


Benefits of Good Anxiety Treatment & Depression Therapy…

The benefit of working with a therapist who is trauma-informed is that our clinicians are well-versed in healing depression and anxiety, and can go deeper if it becomes needed down the road. As mentioned above, often anxiety and depression are rooted in unresolved memories–just like trauma. So, the same techniques can be very effective for more generalized issues. Sometimes this is referred to as “Big T traumas” and “Little T traumas”. We can help with both.

How Can We Meet with Social Distancing?


With social distancing caused by COVID-19, many people are wondering how therapy even works now. It’s been an easy switch for us because we have been doing telehealth or video sessions (very similar to Skype or FaceTime) for years. We know you may have concerns about meeting us virtually, but we promise to walk you through every step. Then, once the virus is passed, we can always switch you back to in-person sessions.

What Should I Expect?

Anxiety counseling is all about learning 1) how to name/understand what you are feeling and 2) becoming intentional in how you react. Once you understand yourself better, you can do relatively simple things to quickly reset your body back to calm.

Depression therapy is is about finding ways to jump start your life. Our clinicians are here for you. We believe in your ability to find meaning and joy. Like anxiety therapy, to battle depression it takes knowing concrete activities you can do that boost your mood and energy while also exploring what is holding you back. Once we work through the stuck parts, the depression naturally lifts.


You matter. We can help.
