SEXUAL ASSAULT & ABUSE COUNSELING
With over 50 years experience - we are the experts in working with survivors of Sexual Assault & Violence.
Survivors of sexual abuse often avoid addressing the painful memories of their past. Although speaking of these experiences can be challenging, it can be liberating as well. Expressing those emotions is the beginning of taking back what the sexual abuse has taken from you.
Often a survivor struggles with feelings of numbness, fear of intimacy, shame for "allowing the incident to happen" and many more emotions. While it is be challenging to face these emotions, utilizing these emotions as the basis for healing helps with self-love and recovery.
Sexual abuse can lead to survivors having a difficulty identifying and validating their own thoughts and emotions. Sexual abuse counseling helps survivors express and value their own emotions again.
Sexual abuse can lead to painful emotions like anger, guilt, and shame. Sexual abuse counseling can help you rebuild can a new perspective in life. After facing emotions, survivors have the opportunity to challenge the way they see themselves and create new hope for their future.
