It is an accepted fact that 1 out of 6 men have suffered from some kind of unwanted sexual abuse .
I specialize in working with boys and men who are having a difficult time in school or home. Usually grades are affected and relationships at home are not what they could be. Sometimes other emotional issues are interfering Often communication with loved ones is strained, There are solutions and it is possible to learn new ways to be that can make things easier. I also work with persons who have been abused and are dealing with the aftermath of their experience. I also work with teenage boys who have abused others as a result of their own experiences and who want to learn how to stop their own negative behaviors.

I am here to help people solve problems with relationships. It can be better than it is and you can do it. Therapy helps us all to be happier again, and soon. Going to therapy is a step before we resolve our issues. I use EMDR, Hypnotherapy, Mind/Body Connection and Cognitive Behavioral approach to help individuals to resolve trauma and ease PTSD. All this to heal painful feelings and behaviors that are keeping us feeling stuck. We can achieve our goals, especially reach happiness we want, to be true to our own core values. All this will improve communication with others- I call it a side effect of therapy, a way to happiness.

Have you walked through events or things that are not healthy and/or normal? Traumas that you can't just “forget.” Sleeplessness, dreams of being back there, unable to get your brain to shut down and relax, feelings of shame, guilt, anger, and numbness…they didn’t prepare you for this. Having images pop into your head of that thing, those people, or that feeling. They teach you how to do your job, but not how to deal with the fallout. You are good when with others who know the deal, but when you have to go home you may feel like you are alone or not good enough for your family..

I help males from teenage to older learn how to express their feelings in non-destructive ways and learn how to better understand the feelings they have. They learn how to feel good about themselves rather than compare themselves negatively to others. Therapy is not about being sick. It is about learning new skills to better manage what life throws our way. My clients see me more as a trusted confidant who cares about them than as a clinician looking at them through a microscope.

Are you feeling disconnected and alone in the world? It is in the human relational disconnect and separateness that most feel the emotional pain at its core. Are you wanting to develop a more loving and compassionate communication model that helps to transform old patterns of defensiveness and aggressiveness into a more compassionate,and empathetic/authentic self? Providing a supportive therapeutic relationship and enhancing the quality of all relationships,including the self, is my primary goal. Significant and life long change most commonly occur through DESPERATION(Pain), as healing begins, INSPIRATION(Hope) becomes the catalyst for change.

Sexual Abuse Therapists

How do therapists treat sexual abuse?

A good therapist will be nonjudgmental and possibly demonstrate active listening, repeating back what the client says to show that they have understood. These skills allow people to feel comfortable discussing their traumatic experiences openly. Some important treatment goals are to restore a sense of safety and to rebuild confidence. In addition to working one-on-one with the patient, a therapist might bring in supportive family members to assist the client.

Do you have to talk extensively about sexual abuse in therapy?

Survivors frequently find it difficult to describe what happened to them out loud. They can even still be in a state of denial if the sexual abuse occurred recently. It is important for survivors to acknowledge that what happened isn’t their fault and to challenge and reappraise any unhealthy feelings or thoughts as they arise. Art therapy and play therapy are useful non-verbal means of communication for some survivors.

How long does treatment for sexual abuse take?

Recovery from sexual abuse can be a long and difficult process. Some survivors are able to move on naturally on their own, given time, while others require the guidance of a trained therapist. Therapy needs vary and can range from a few sessions to months or even years. Healing from sexual abuse takes time, and everyone’s journey will look a little different.

Can trauma symptoms caused by sexual abuse come back after treatment?

As occurs in many cases of trauma, survivors of sexual abuse may experience PTSD-like symptoms long after the abuse has ceased or after an initial round of treatment has occurred. In such a case, there is evidence that prolonged exposure therapy is a useful treatment for survivors, and may be more efficacious than supportive counseling alone. While triggers may continue to cause distress, the idea is that, with time and repeated exposure, their power will fade, allowing survivors to move on with their lives.
