"When I see a new patient for the first time, I try to assess what he or she wants from life or from what each person is struggling. I do this with individuals or parents so together so we can determine what is best for him or her or their child at the current time. Sometimes people want to work on one problem and then develop a curiosity about how their minds work. Often in those situations, I work more intensely and more frequency to search for what is meaning to people and how they wants to navigate in the world in a freer way."

Sexual Abuse Therapists
Child sexual abuse is the deliberate exposure of a minor child to sexual activity that the child cannot comprehend or consent to. This means a child is forced or talked into sex or sexual activities by another person. This behavior includes acts such as inappropriate touching of a child's breasts or genitalia, someone exposing their genitalia to a child, fondling, oral-genital contact, genital and anal intercourse, as well as exhibitionism, voyeurism, and exposure to pornography.

If you're looking for a therapist that has treated clients who've experienced sexual abuse in 20815 or for 20815 sexual abuse counseling, these professionals provide confidential support for individuals in an abusive relationship. They include sexual abuse therapists, sexual abuse psychologists and sexual abuse counselors. Therapists can help with child abuse in 20815 and sexual violence in 20815. An 20815 therapist can identify the signs and causes of sexual abuse, discuss intervention and refer victims to shelters.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 20815 are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 20815 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 20815 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 20815 or family therapy in 20815.
