PTSD Specialist in NYC

If you’re looking for a PTSD specialist in NYC, you’ve come to the right place. With decades of experience, I’ve worked with hundreds of people struggling with PTSD including first responders of all types. I know the symptoms.

You feel stressed and exhausted.

Do you feel jumpy or easily startled, hypervigilant, exhausted due to the negative talk you abuse yourself with, struggling to trust people, and spacing out because you’re lost in your own mind?

These can be symptoms of PTSD or of C-PTSD – that’s Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder which is like PTSD but instead of one major traumatic experience like a rape, C-PTSD occurs over time with many repeated traumatic experiences, like being a first responder showing up at accident scenes over and over and over again. These issues can lead to deteriorating personal relationships, a constantly stressed and overwhelmed mind, an inability to enjoy events like New Year’s or 4th of July, and feeling beaten up because of the negative talk you subject yourself to.

Since you’re here on this page, I assume you’re pretty sick of this bullshit and you’re looking for a PTSD specialist to help. Fortunately, if you’re anywhere in New York state, you’ve found your woman. 

I am Lisa Curtis, a PTSD specialist in NYC, and I am here to help.

I’m a licensed clinical social worker, credentialed alcohol and substance abuse counselor (CASAC) and wellness coach. I’ve been working with first responders since before and during 9/11. I’m very caring, but I’m also no nonsense. I work exclusively with clients who bring a strong desire to make real changes in their lives, despite previous hurdles. I’m not for everyone but perhaps I am the right therapist for you. 

You want a fulfilling, happy life without trauma

You’ve been through terrible trauma, but what you want is to be able to move on with your life and make it great. You don’t want your life and your personality to be all about the trauma you’ve experienced. It feels impossible to relax, to unwind and to enjoy life without constantly being reminded of what you’ve been through. You crave a life that doesn’t include the ghosts of your past haunting you.

You want to get over your destructive behaviors and poor decision-making, and you have realized that you cannot do it alone. That’s okay. It’s okay – and in fact, it’s good – to reach out for help when you need it.

Don’t wait any longer! Let’s start working together today.

I want to help you live a life that’s as amazing as you are. You deserve a healthy, happy life, and together we will go through your problems, exploring them and figuring out solutions that will get you there.

You deserve to be able to live the life you want. Contact me today, and let’s get you started on that journey!
