There is a reason you have decided to seek therapy for yourself or a loved one. The world is becoming an increasingly challenging place for those of any age to navigate. Whatever the reason that brings you to treatment, I am prepared to support you in identifying and treating the root cause(s) of problems that you are facing. While you are the expert in your own life, I will use only evidence-based approaches in assisting your exploration in what underlies the challenges you face. Also, for most younger kids and families, I develop individualized treatment manuals, so that parents can be directly involved in the treatment process.

Emotional distress takes many forms: low self esteem, depression, anxiety, chronic anger, and/or relationship problems are some of the reasons people come to therapy. Some people who see me are having a difficult time with a life transition or have been unable to bounce back from a significant loss. Some have a history of being traumatized in ways that still impact them, or have problematic and unproductive ways of coping with life's difficulties.

Life can be hard. Young people face a number of challenges-- family stresses, anxiety about growing older and separating from parents, peer pressure, the lure of substances. As adults, we also face painful stressors-- divorce, for example, losses, aging. We can become stuck, overwhelmed, and confused. In my work with adolescents and adults, I offer an engaged, intensive approach that will allow us to understand how longstanding dysfunctional patterns and beliefs affect your daily life. Specialized training and decades of experience have taught me that the better we understand ourselves, the better we can handle challenges and implement adaptive solutions.

If you experience a pattern of disappointment and hurt in your relationships, you might begin to wonder what you're doing wrong. You may feel anxious around others and read into what they do and say to determine how they feel about you. Conflict might bring up feelings of unworthiness and self-blame. Others seem to have such ease with relationships, and you don’t understand why it feels like such a struggle to find and keep connections that feel secure. As hard as you've tried, you've not been able to interrupt this pattern and you worry you’ll feel this way forever.

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.
