Survivors of Sexual Abuse
If you or a loved one have experienced sexual abuse, our counselors are trained to help you. Recovering from sexual trauma can be a lifelong process. We move from shock and anger, to depression and despair before settling into acceptance and growth. Part of the journey involves (re)claiming sexual pleasure for oneself. Trauma work can diminish and resolve feelings such as hypervigilance, dissociation, guilt, flashbacks, depression, low self confidence, anxiety, sense of being ‘spoiled’. Our counselors have experience with many effective methods of pursuing this kind of healing: EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing), internal family systems, and psychodynamic.
Let us work together to free the survivor inside — claiming your full experience of intimacy, pleasure, and love.
