Frequently Asked Questions

Trauma refers to a disturbing or life-threatening event that one has experienced, witnessed, or learned about that results in emotional distress. It can encompass a wide range of events from accidents to abuse. PTSD, or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, on the other hand, is a diagnosable mental health condition that some individuals develop after exposure to trauma. It’s characterized by symptoms such as recurrent distressing memories, avoidance of reminders, and increased arousal reactions like difficulty sleeping or irritability.

Not everyone who experiences trauma will develop PTSD. However, even without a PTSD diagnosis, if a past traumatic experience is bothersome to you or impacting your life or relationships in any way, therapy can help resolve any lingering emotional discomfort.

Recognizing the need for trauma therapy is the first crucial step toward healing. If you consistently relive traumatic events, experience nightmares, avoid places or people that remind you of the trauma, or feel a persistent sense of danger, it may be time to seek professional help. Furthermore, feelings of detachment, pervasive sadness, or heightened states of anxiety are indicators that trauma has affected your well-being. Specialized trauma therapy can offer strategies to cope, heal, and regain control.

While traumatic events often conjure images of catastrophic incidents, trauma itself can originate from a myriad of experiences, many of which might seem “ordinary” or “commonplace.” Emotional abuse or neglect, witnessing violence, or enduring prolonged periods of stress can be just as traumatic as more dramatic events. It’s essential to recognize that trauma is subjective, and its impact varies from person to person. Therapy offers a personalized approach to healing, regardless of the trauma’s origin.

Our approach at WPC recognizes the unique needs of each individual facing trauma. We employ several evidence-based modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to reshape patterns of thinking and behavior, Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) which focuses on understanding and processing traumatic events, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) which targets the reprocessing of traumatic memories to reduce their emotional charge.

Therapy’s duration is genuinely individual and influenced by factors like the trauma’s nature, the client’s specific goals, and the presence of any coexisting conditions. Some individuals benefit from short-term interventions, while others prefer a more extended period to fully process and heal. At WPC, we prioritize regular reflection and open dialogue to ensure the therapy remains aligned with each individual’s needs and progress.

Absolutely. At WPC, we deeply value the trust you place in us. Your safety, both emotional and psychological, is our priority. Every detail you share, every memory you recount, is held in the strictest confidence, adhering to professional ethics and guidelines. This confidentiality ensures a secure space where you can freely express, explore, and heal.
