I believe people perceive their world through experiences, socialization, belief systems, values, and cultural norms. These perceptions create "thinking" norms and subsequent feelings leading to patterns of behavior. It is human nature to hold onto these perceptions even when they are ineffective and non-productive. Most people want to be cared for and freed from fear, which comes in many styles, shapes, and colors. Resolution of issues encompasses a higher and more rewarding level of functioning than previously held in spirituality, individuality, relationships, family, the workplace, and so many other nuances in one's life .

I work well with clients whom are seeking to improve their quality of life. If there’s ever a moment where one maybe feeling a void, emptiness inside of them I assist and facilitate clients through rediscovery of self. The concept of being fully aware of oneself and how you see the world is crucial to identifying and upholding your personal values and standards. It’s when we neglect our standards of living do we find conflict or that internal battle. Most of the time this happens when a life stressor occurs. My ideal client is one whom is ready to move from victim to survivor.

Life can be difficult and challenging. We are often taught and develop maladaptive ways of coping just to get by. At some point in our life we could benefit from education and guidance on how to make improvements leading to a healthier more fulfilling life. That is the goal in therapy: to foster healing that leads to balance in one’s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. This may look different for each client. Some people need to simply be heard, others need to learn and make changes in their present life, and others need to process pain from their past that is still affecting them today.

Has life's challenges thrown you off course? Has the struggles of your past been affecting your present and dimming your future? Have you gotten to a point in life where you just feel stuck and not living the life that you want to live? Unfortunately, many people learn to avoid the deep rooted issues that eventually compound and manifest into unhealthy behaviors, relationship problems, anxiety, depression and addiction. This can often be tough to acknowledge and let's be real, seeking help from a professional can be a daunting and intimidating task. But it does not have to be. There is hope.

Often in life we can find ourself in a place of distress, darkness, chaos and feel like there is nobody that understands or cares. Sometimes you are the parent of the child that is always kicked out of school, or you painfully watch your child go through something you know is just so upsetting but you are not able to help. Maybe you are told you are just not enough so much that you have started to believe it. I am a prescriptive therapist with a vast array of skills and training ready to set some goals and work to help you make change happen.

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.
