Divorce, physical or sexual abuse and other traumas, attachment difficulties, and adoption issues are all areas in which I have extensive experience.
Relationships are central to my work, whether it be the relationship between a child or adult and myself, or the complex web of relationships within a family. My training and experience in Infant Mental Health--a type of therapy focusing on the attachment relationship between a primary caregiver and and an infant or young child--permeates all aspects of my work. I believe that therapy cannot separate an individual from the context of his or her relationships, past or present. I am creative and flexible in my approach to working with the children, teens, adults and families that I serve.

When you have a long history of mental health struggles, healing can feel impossible. This can be especially true for those with a trauma history - trauma manifests in emotional and physical symptoms that can feel too big to confront. However, it is possible to feel better with the right tools and approach. At the heart of my practice is a deep respect for the courage it takes to seek healing. I believe in providing a safe, compassionate, and non-judgmental space for my clients to explore their experiences and emotions.

After years of working with clients who expressed symptoms that were unmanageable or persistent no matter their efforts; I found the standard textbook approach for treating individuals was old and unable to create lifestyle changes so many of us searched for. I strongly believe that all patients are unique, therefore I will utilize the most integrative holistic treatment after taking into consideration the patient as a whole. I provide an open, non-judgmental environment where patients can feel safe and understood. I welcome clients of all racial and ethnic backgrounds, religions, sexual orientations, and gender identities.

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.
