08/15/22 Accepting new clients As a counselor and a retired cop, I have dealt with a wide range of tragedies that can drive a person to seek counseling. Life is messy, and my background will help me understand what you have been through. Trauma is an emotional injury, and like many physical injuries it can heal if you tend to it properly. Even if you haven’t suffered an extreme event, you may feel stuck and be unable to move forward. I retired from policing so that I could more directly help people put their lives back together. Having bad things happen shouldn’t keep you from being able to have a good life.

Many of my clients have experienced a traumatic event(s) such as sexual, physical, or emotional abuse, or neglect. The last ones can be harder to define because invalidation is a common form of emotional neglect that is hard to label. Despite what the trauma is or if it falls into one of those categories exactly, if it affects you, then it matters. Clients come to me with confusion and emotional pain that I help them sift through and connect with in order to heal and return to their new normal version of life. I welcome all clients from all walks of life, races, cultures, genders, and preferences.

CS Lewis wrote that our passions are sleepy, that we are like little children who are easily pleased with making mud pies in a slum when we have no idea what it means to have a holiday at the sea. There is always more to life than what we can so easily settle for, and in journeying into the deeper parts of our hearts we can better know ourselves, and God, toward healing, and a more abundant life. Counseling can provide a safe place to walk through the struggles of life. Andrea's focus: adults 18+ for individual counseling. Payment forms: Cr Card, Apple Pay, Cash App, cash.

As the parent of a struggling teen, you often find yourself wondering what you can do to help them feel better. You feel like you've tried everything, but nothing seems to be working--at least not for long. No matter what you do, you just can't seem to reach them. Their personality has changed, and sometimes you worry that things could get worse. You know they have so much potential, but where did it go? Reaching out to a therapist can be scary because you want someone who can truly connect with your teen, and you want someone who will keep you informed on their progress.

Generally, I work with people who feel stuck; they have a desire for change in their life but don’t know how. They may feel undeserving of change or invalidated by people close to them. Others may feel unsupported in their endeavors or may be struggling to cope with transitions or difficult events. My approach to therapy includes collaboratively working with you to develop goals and interventions for change. In this approach, we will explore your thoughts, feelings, and patterns of behavior.

CSCC's approach to counseling is one that first emphasizes the critical need we all have for our stories to be heard and known. Moving from intellectually sharing the details of our lives to building a sense of knowing one another and being together in the context of relationship is a process for which we rarely make time, but it is the crucible for change. In the context of confidentiality and safety, trust can be shared, hurts can be healed, paths can be explored, and life, in all of its complexity, can be celebrated.

There is no shame in seeking assistance when things just aren't going well and occasionally, everyone needs help. Whether an adolescent or adult, you must want to be helped, willing to help yourself, and embrace change. I work best with individuals who accept and welcome an honest and direct approach. I tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear. I also work with couples and families who need an outsider's objective perspective to improving communication and relationships. I believe in rational, logical choice and decision making. Seeing me for assistance when possibly required is a rational and logical choice.

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.
