SEXUAL ABUSE THERAPY

Therapy for Sexual Abuse

Sexual abuse can happen to anyone regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, and sociology-economic status. One in every four females and one in every six males are victims of sexual assault.

Sexual abuse can have a devastating effect on a person's life. Survivors of sexual abuse frequently experience a variety of symptoms that can affect all aspects of their lives, including:

Blue Check Mark Nightmares

Blue Check Mark Flashback or intrusive memories of the assault

Blue Check Mark Sleep difficulties

Blue Check Mark Increase or decrease in appetite

Blue Check Mark Fearfulness

Blue Check Mark Crying

Blue Check Mark Difficulties with trust

Blue Check Mark A change in sexual behaviors

Blue Check Mark Difficulty concentrating

Blue Check Mark Negative impact on personal relationships

Blue Check Mark Negative impact on work/school

Blue Check Mark Increase in depression or sadness

I help my patients by providing a supportive environment, being a non-emotional person to talk to, teaching coping skills and mindfulness exercises, and assisting them in understanding the changes they are experiencing caused by the attack.

Several types of therapy are available for sexual abuse survivors, each of which can help relieve the pain and trauma of the experience. Some common therapies include: individual therapy, family therapy, couple's therapy, parent-child therapy, and group therapy. I work with my patients and their families to guide them through the type of therapy that is appropriate.
