Sometimes it is a struggle to face thoughts and feelings that you are having. Various events have happened to us in our life that continue to haunt us causing harmful and troubling feelings. These troubling feelings can feel shameful and unforgiveable. It helps to have a safe environment to talk.

**WINTER 2022: ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS.** It takes true courage to share a story that contains a history of abuse. Maybe you’ve found yourself overwhelmed, anxious, or depressed and want to better understand the triggers. Perhaps you’ve tried to ignore relationship challenges or workplace struggles in hopes they would pass on their own. Possibly you’ve reflected on a painful past, and worry you are overreacting to memories, won’t be believed, or are at fault. You may even have tried to overcome barriers, only to find the strategies that used to work no longer serve you. Now, you’ve reached a point where you NEED to try something new.

I have experience working with trauma symptoms that originate from childhood sexual abuse, sexual assault, physical and emotional abuse and neglect, as well as coping with addiction, life transitions, anxiety, depression, and chronic pain.
Our symptoms and discomforting experiences express what has happened to us in the past. In my clinical work, I aspire to help clients tolerate and be present moment to moment, using the body and the felt senses as entry points to habits of thought, feelings, and behaviors that stand as barriers to living an engaged life. All aspects of experience are invited into the therapy room, and working with what arises we seek antidotes and tools to reduce suffering and open up new possibilities. A deep mutuality, collaboration, creativity, and surprise are what I absolutely love about the therapeutic relationship.

Child sexual abuse is the deliberate exposure of a minor child to sexual activity that the child cannot comprehend or consent to.

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 Brooklyn or for Brooklyn 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 Brooklyn and sexual violence in Brooklyn.
