Frequently Asked Questions

The National Council for Behavioral Health estimates that 70% of adults in the United States, or 223.4 million people, have experienced at least one type of traumatic event. So while not everyone experiences trauma, many people do.

Anyone at any age can develop PTSD. Although it’s common, you don’t have to be a war veteran or a survivor of a dangerous event to develop PTSD; sometimes it’s a build-up of events or other occurrences that cause PTSD.

Working with someone unbiased, non-judgemental, and professionally trained allows you to safely work through your traumatic experience(s). You’ll have someone who you trust using evidence-based treatments that help you deal with your symptoms of trauma, get to the root of what’s causing it, and to move past it.

Everyone is different and may have different treatment goals. There isn’t a generic timeline for when patients will heal from a traumatic experience. So much depends on the nature and duration of what has happened to you. Single event traumas tend to heal far faster than traumas that occurred over a long period of time, particularly starting in early childhood. You will begin to feel a shift towards healing and a reduction in symptoms relatively quickly in both cases, however, once treatment begins.
