psychological trauma treatment program


A trauma psychologist is someone who works with people who have experienced a trauma in an effort to help them overcome that experience and to live a happier and healthier life in a way that helps them to move on from that experience.


If you were impacted by the 2016 Wildfires, please contact PAA’s office.
