I believe that everyone has the right to live the life they imagine for themselves. Each of us has a right to feel safe, respected, protected and loved. I have been a psychotherapist for the past twenty years. I chose this profession because I wanted to continue to grow and explore life to its fullest in a work environment that generates positivity. I have worked extensively with the HIV/AIDS community, engaged in comprehensive therapy with sexual abuse and trauma clients, along with a focus on work/life balance concerns. I focus on the client’s strengths, and goals, and explore one's thoughts, past experiences, and belief systems.

Most of my clients are intelligent, spiritual and insightful, seeking enlightenment, peace and love. Many have existential problems, leftover hurts and traumas from childhood, low self-esteem. I have seen many victims of sexual abuse and other traumas. We move through understanding responsibility, forgiving self and others, and ultimately moving to self acceptance. I recommend meditation to all of my clients for the purpose of achieving peace, self discovery, learning to love and to connect with something much larger than the self (call it what you will).

The science and art of clinical psychology provides a unique, personal space for individuals to rely upon when it seems old methods of coping no longer suffice for current day stressors. Based on current, scientific research, a nonjudgmental and compassionate approach, and a natural intuitiveness and empathy, psychotherapy can help others to learn how to access their own, inner wise mind that is capable of tremendous strength and transformation when education, support, and genuine care are provided.

I believe many adults are living an unfulfilled life due to unprocessed traumatic events that took place in their past. Present hardships may also encourage poor decision making which can result in regrets. Using biblical principles, I help guide individuals during their toughest seasons, and remind them that hope still lives. In addition to adults, I am experienced in helping adolescents cope and process traumatic events through evidence based techniques such as trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy. These events may include, but are not limited to rape, abandonment, abuse, divorced parents, and human trafficking.

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.
