It is hard for you to find peace and lean into real joy.

You are always on the go, pushing forward. Work is your outlet. If you were to stop, you are afraid of what would happen. You fill your days up with stuff as to not think about what is really going on with you. Things are starting to build up though. You might be starting to drop some of the balls you are juggling.

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 Houston or for Houston 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 Houston and sexual violence in Houston. An Houston 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 Houston are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Houston. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Houston
