It is never too late to heal. The Oasis Program for Trauma, PTSD and Complicated Grief is the result of many years of research, training and treatment experience. Our professional team desired to create an effective program where individuals could receive excellent treatment in a safe, nurturing and holistic setting. Healing from trauma, PTSD and loss is a process that often involves the use of many different treatment methods employed over a period of time. Our therapists are trained in the most effective evidence-based treatments such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and many others. Often, clients seeking relief from trauma, loss and PTSD related symptoms, have hopes of getting a magical treatment that “erases” the trauma. But there are aspects of trauma work that take TIME, like establishing a safe, trusting, therapeutic relationship. It is important that clients are informed about the nature of treatment and what to expect. We want our clients to feel safe from the start, which can only begin with complete openness, honesty, and transparency on the part of the therapist and the facility.
Our team of licensed psychologists and therapists are trained in evidenced based trauma treatment (EMDR) and supportive treatments (DBT) that provide clients with the skills and tools necessary to process their trauma and losses. Each client will receive a thorough assessment to determine their particular needs and make sure the Oasis is the best treatment facility for them. Following the initial assessment, each client will work with their primary therapist to develop a treatment plan and program outline that is customized to meet their specific needs.
The Oasis Program for Trauma, PTSD and Complicated Grief may include some or all of the following treatment services:
- Individual Psychotherapy (1-3 times per week)
- DBT Skills Group (or Pre-DBT Skills Group)
- Grief and Loss Group
- Yoga, art, movement therapy, and meditation/spiritual group

- Referral for Psychiatric evaluation and medication management
Individuals with a history of childhood trauma or abuse, and individuals suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) often have other psychological problems that require treatment. At Therapeutic Oasis of the Palm Beaches, we also have extensive experience working with addictive and compulsive issues, anxiety disorders, mood disorders, eating disorders, and personality disorders.
