> I was recently dxd with ptsd. How do I find a psychologist specializing in treating this? Is there a specific website devoted to them or any organizations they generally belong to to help patients find them? What medications are typically prescribed for ptsd?

What kind of PTSD? I have c-PTSD. I think it is really important to get someone who has experience treating trauma. I didn't, and my trauma was multiplied as a result. I don't know for sure, but wehther you have classic PTSD or c-PTSD might make a difference, so you may want to check into whether it does.

PTSD is often accompanied by depression and/or anxiety, so meds for that can be helpful.. but therapy is indeed a crucial component in addressing PTSD.
