I work with individuals who were impacted by child sexual abuse or those who have experienced one or multiple trauma’s.
Our personal experiences are what form us into the person we are today. Naturally, because we are human, we tend to avoid thinking or talking about our painful experiences. Often, we need to acknowledge and address our pain to overcome it. My sole purpose is to help you reach your full potential, and to make you feel seen and heard.

I have extensive experience working with those diagnosed with Severe and Persistent Mental Illness, and those who have been impacted by sexual abuse(including male sexual offenders).
I believe that while many of us feel unwell, we can improve our outlook and many areas of our lives with enough support and encouragement. Trauma, stress, abuse, and pain have caused us to become overwhelmed and unable to deal with life as it comes. Utilizing a holistic wellness model, I can assist you in creating a new life, with beautiful new dreams that can finally become reality. Together, we can pinpoint the parts of life that have never seemed to go well, and create real life solutions for them by addressing and resolving the pain of loss, grief, and oppression that have hurt us over time.

Your authentic self is beautiful. Unfortunately sometimes we lose ourselves when we get caught up in the way we think we "should" be in various relationships, workspaces, and societal expectations. Losing or ignoring who we truly are can lead to relationship issues, depression, anxiety, and general life dissatisfaction. Sometimes losing ourselves happens due to traumatic life circumstances and sometimes it's due to years of unrelenting pressures.

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 Omaha or for Omaha 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 Omaha and sexual violence in Omaha.
