Toddler nightmares

My 20 month old daughter has been having nightmares for the last two weeks. She wakes up during the night between 12am-4am and she is hysterical crying, screaming no, yelling for me & her father, banging or kicking her crib, and throwing all of her things that are in her crib onto the floor in her room. After I pick her up and try to comfort her, she won't even lay down in my bed. She clings onto me and we sit on the couch while she sobs for about a half an hour or so. She ends up sleeping on the couch with me or her father. What could be causing this? Is there anything I can do for her? Any information or thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!
